MaeLynn Kartchner Harris
MaeLynn Kartchner Harris, beloved daughter, wife, mother, and friend, passed away quietly at home on January 31, 2011 from neuroendocrine cancer.
MaeLynn was born April 11, 1980 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her parents are Jerry and Marie Kartchner of Cottonwood Heights. She lived in Salt Lake until graduating from Brighton High in 1998. She then went on to Utah State University in Logan, graduating in 2002. Logan has been her home ever since.
She married Andrew Lee Harris of North Logan on June 22, 2001 in the Jordan River Temple and has five children: Kendall(8) , Ellie(6), Triston(4), Sawyer(4), and Abigail(3).
MaeLynn was an amazingly sweet person who brought joy to whomever she met. She loved painting, being outdoors, and being around other people. She served faithfully in multiple callings in the LDS church and worked hard to love her children and teach them to choose the right. Her absence will create a hole in many lives, but we are grateful she is not suffering anymore.

She is survived by her Grandmother Hanks; her parents, Jerry and Marie; sister, Jamie; husband, Andrew; children, Kendall, Ellie, Triston, Sawyer, Abigail; parents-in-law, Pamela and Lee Harris; brother and sister-in-law, Shane Harris and Jamie Harris Norton; biological parents, Andy and Lori Reese; biological brother and sisters, Devan, Jaide, and Tonia.
