Sheila Maughan Harris, 73, of Spanish Fork, Utah passed away on July 6th, 2022.

She was born August 4th, 1948 in St Ignatius, Montana to William Rex and Julia Marie Maughan. Sheila was a twin, and the oldest of 14th kids. She grew up in Ronan, Montana area with her parents and 13 siblings.

It was while she was living in Provo, Utah, that she met her future husband, Rodney Evan Harris. They were married in the Manti, Utah Temple on December 19, 1969. Sheila was a devoted wife and a loving mother to her 5 children.

She was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in which she held several Church callings over the years. Mostly playing the piano or the organ, which she really enjoyed doing.

Sheila loved to read and sew. She also loved “digging” in the dirt, in her vegetable garden, and her flower beds.
That was her joy in the spring and summer months. She was also known for making the best homemade wheat bread, and for her pickles, which we all got to enjoy.

She is survived by her 5 children, Heather (Kendall) Thaxton of Heber, Jeani (Craig) Johnson of Springville, Rex Harris of Spanish Fork, Christi (Eric) Snedecor of Spanish Fork, Marie (Don) Chavez of Spanish Fork, 9 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and 12 siblings.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Rodney, her parents, and her sister Myrna.
