Lorna Harris Daniels

February 6, 1935 — November 20, 2022



Lorna Harris Daniels passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 20, 2022 early in the morning, leaving herself just enough time to get ready for church in heaven! She was born on February 6, 1935 in her Grandmother Harris’ home in Provo, UT, where she was subsequently raised. She attended Provo High School and Brigham Young University where she met and married Ried Daniels. They were married in the Salt Lake Temple, and Lorna was delighted to soon welcome four children to their family. 

Lorna created treasured memories for her children and sixteen grandchildren every year on the  4th of July with early morning patriotic music, bacon, and way too many doughnuts. Truly, the only thing Lorna loved more than her country and family was her Savior Jesus Christ. She was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  She lived a life of service and held many callings, her favorite being Gospel Doctrine teacher. She was famous for her heart-felt notes, and for faithfully writing monthly letters to all the missionaries serving from her ward for more than 40 years.

Lorna enjoyed working at the Davis County Library.  This job afforded her financial independence, stability, and the means to support her children on missions.  Her grandchildren even got to have some of their favorite books covered in the special library plastic covers.

Family members, neighbors, friends, and healthcare workers looked forward to visits with Lorna because she always met you with chocolate chip cookies, homemade bread, or Christmas chocolates. She was a prolific writer and often included with these treats a handwritten note, birthday card, or letter from the heart, telling you how much she loved you and appreciated you. She would also express her gratitude to military members and veterans in uniform wherever she went.  Lorna never left you in doubt of her love for you, and this created a strong and dedicated family and community around her.

Lorna loved music.  She played the piano, violin, and always enjoyed singing both in choirs and at home.  She was blessed with a “spirit of sunshine”, and drew people to her with her positive attitude and kind words. Lorna was dearly loved, and will be dearly missed.

Lorna leaves behind her son Dallan (Lori) Daniels, son-in-law Todd Larson, her daughter Denise (Russ) Roll, son Doug (Julyn) Daniels, sixteen grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Also, her brother Leland (Katie) Harris, sister Suzanne Tyler and sister-in-law Ruth Harris. She was preceded in death by her sweet daughter Diana Larson earlier this year, and her brother David Harris.
