RUSSON BROTHERS MORTUARY
Mitzi Lyn Roberts Pearson
Born February 3, 1955, Afton Wyoming
Died March 7, 2009, Bountiful, Utah. Daughter of the late Ivan and Leora Roberts.
Our dear Mitzi passed away after suffering most of her years battling health complications. Throughout her life, Mitzi had many passions and talents, including sewing, music, art, and athletics. She had the ability to make friends and had a great sense of humor, but most of all, she loved her children, husband, and the gospel. She was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many positions in the music, primary, and young women's organizations. Mitzi served as the choir and ward organist for over 13 years.
She had a strong testimony of the gospel and a deep relationship with her Heavenly Father. She believed in eternal families and looked forward to being reunited with them one day.
Growing up, Mitzi loved swinging and climbing trees in her backyard, and working in her dad's grocery store. She enjoyed playing softball, dancing on the Drill Team, and skiing with her Star Valley High Ski Club. She had a great love of animals and enjoyed singing, playing the piano, drawing, and playing with children.
Mitzi was preceded in death by her parents, parents-in-law, and a sister- in-law. She is survived by her husband Melvin, daughter Monica, sons James, Clint (Christmas), Brandon (Christie), and Bryant (currently serving a mission in the Nashville, Tennessee Mission), sisters Eldona (Jerry Call), Pat (Brent Wadsworth), and brother Jerry Lee Roberts (Judy), and 5 grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held Friday, March 13th at the Mueller Park 3rd Ward located at 1825 S. 850 E. Bountiful, Utah, at 11 a.m. where friends and family may call from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. prior to services.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donating to the Perpetual Education Fund of the LDS Church.
