"Sharon Crippen (Sharon C. Purdy) is/was my mom. She had a love for all things living and was happiest among her many animals on our farm in Layton, Utah.


She was married April 12th, 1963 to my father, John Milton Purdy of Ogden, Utah, and they were married until the day she passed away at McKay-Dee Hospital on May 12th, 2004 at 11:00AM due to complications from her heart and newly discovered lung cancer.

She is buried at the Lindquist Mortuary and Cemetary in Layton, Utah just up the street from her beloved farm where my father still lives. She is remembered by us all the time and will never be forgotten. I miss her so much! "
