Laurie Laraine McEwan
1959 ~ 2015

Laurie Laraine Hewitt McEwan, age 55, lost her courageous battle with cancer on January 21, 2015. Even though she was sad to leave, we know she rejoiced in being reunited with her son Seth and being free from her pain. We express joy in knowing she had accomplished her purpose here and she was a valiant example of enduring to the end.

Laurie was born in Wichita, Kansas on December 7, 1959 to Larry and Alta Hewitt. She was the middle of 9 children. Laurie graduated in 1978 from Wichita Heights High School, moved to Tucson, Arizona and then Provo, Utah. She married Bret Baum in 1983 and later divorced. She married Steve McEwan in 1986 and later sealed in 1988 in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they had 3 children: Twins Seth and Kaylee, and son Landon.

Laurie worked for Signetics Corp then Acme/American Fence Company until 1995 then became the secretary for her husband's landscaping business. In 2009, Laurie started working for Alpine School District and later as the Nutrition Service Manager for Lindon Elementary.

In 2006, Laurie was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer. She fought everyday and tried to live as normal a life as she could and went into remission in 2007. In 2012, she faced a recurrence from which she would not recover.

Laurie always put the needs of others before her own and made many sacrifices on others behalf. She kept her sense of humor and her smile through her brave fight and was a great example of a person who, when faced with challenges and tragedies, relied on her faith and understanding of our plan here on Earth to strengthen her and help her carry on. She was faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We know that Laurie now knows that what she has believed in all these years is TRUE. FAMILIES ARE FOREVER!! We are grateful to the many family, friends, and neighbors who loved and prayed for Laurie and served our family over the years. We want to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude to Susie, Kristi, and Amy, along with the other members of the IHC Hospice team for their dedication, service and love extended to Laurie and family.

She is survived by her husband, Steve, daughter Kaylee, and son Landon. She is also survived by her mother, Alta and siblings: Greg, Linda, Michael, Michele, Lisa, Lanell, Randall and Loretta. She was preceded in death by her father Lawrence and her son, Seth. Mom, you taught us to never give up and we look forward to the day we can be together forever. We love you so much!
