In memory of Amy Lundevall Harshbarger aka "Pat"

God called back his special angel from this life on June 27, 2010. She loved her life on Earth, but she will be happy to see all of her loved ones in Heaven. Mom and Nana Mor Mor will be greatly missed by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They will keep her in their hearts forever.Amy was the fourth child of Berger and Amy Lundevall, who were converts to the LDS Church in Sweden and started a home and family in Salt Lake City. Proud of her heritage, she loved to teach Swedish songs and prayers to her children and grandchildren.
Married to Lawrence Roy Harshbarger in 1942, she moved to California, where she devoted herself to her husband and children. Divorcing in 1970, she returned to Salt Lake City and her extended family, who supported her and her children in making a new life in Utah. While working as a store manager, she was a full-time mother to her youngest children.
As her children grew, married, and started families of their own, Mom became a loving and devoted grandmother and great-grand-mother, always remembering birth-days, and always sending presents and home- made candy at Christmas.
She kept in touch with high-school friends, and formed a club, "the bachelorettes," which would regularly meet to play cards and share memories and laughter.
Nearing retirement, she became a volunteer Foster Grandma, loving every child she was involved with for more than 20 years.
In her later years, she visited friends and family in California and New York, and she took many trips with her sisters Ruth and Lil and her brother-in-law Doug.
She was a constant presence of joy, love, and comfort to those lucky enough to know her. She touched many hearts in many different ways.
She is survived by children Larry, Tom, Scott, and Haidee; their spouses Mary Ellen, Sue, Lisa, and Ron; eight grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; sister Lillian; many friends and family. Preceded in death by siblings Edna, Norma, Roger, and Ruth.
