Miriam (Mickee) Tuttle Harris
1922 ~ 2013

Miriam (Mickee) Tuttle Harris, age 90, passed away March 11, 2013 from natural causes. She has been a resident of Courtyard at Jamestown in Provo for the last 3 years where she had so many wonderful friends and caregivers. Prior to that she was a 50 year resident of Arvada, CO.

She was born in Oakley ID on October 20, 1922 to Edward Ray Tuttle and Rachel Hale. She was the fourth daughter with three brothers and four sisters. Mickee was a happy, lively child that always valued her family, friendships and her schoolwork. After much travel, her family settled in American Fork. When she wasn’t performing her ballet dance recital, she was off pursing her passion for marches as a drummer in the American Fork High School marching band. She had the honor of being elected "Miss American" her senior year.

On March 17, 1942, she married Louis Eugene "Gene" Harris and shortly thereafter, he was off to war. The next 25 years were filled with dedication as they moved from base to base with each new military assignment. She delighted in using her professional-like sewing skills to re-create beautiful surroundings for each particular residence. Many times she was sewing the last stitch on her present project as word came that it was "time to move on". During this time they were blessed with 3 wonderful daughters; Jill (Joseph) Garruto, Colo. Sprgs, CO, Teri Lee Harris, Provo, UT and Heidi Harris Oaklief, Arvada, CO.

Mickee was a loving, generous and patient mother wife, grandmother and friend. She always supported her husband in each endeavor. There was always a non-judgmental ear for her daughters, grandchildren and friends. Every one of her grandchildren thought they were the favorite, and they were right! Her insatiable appetite for knowledge kept her present and interested even until her last day. Her love of beautiful flowers was always present in her home with iris and sweet peas being some of her favorites.

She was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served willingly in many, many callings. She fulfilled her earthly responsibilities faithfully and was an example of kindness, patience and righteous living.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, a brother and 3 sisters. She is survived by 1 sister, 2 brothers, her 3 daughters, 8 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.

In honor of Mickee, the family requests that you wear something purple/lavender to her service. Funeral services will be held Saturday, March 16, 2012 at 11:00 am at the Edgewood/Riverside Building located at 3500 North 180 East, Provo, Utah at 11:00 am, viewing will held from 9:30-10:30 am. prior to services a the church.
