Sharon Lee (Richards) Morgan was reunited with her eternal “sweetheart” on their 57th anniversary, February 26, 2022. We celebrate the love and joy we know they are feeling in this reunion. Sharon was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.
Sharon was born on May 28, 1943, to Frances Louise Shields and Clayton Burt Richards in Stockton, California. She was the last of three children. After graduating from Culver High School, she attended and graduated from Hollywood Presbyterian Nursing College. While she was working on her nursing degree, she met John Athos Morgan, and they were married in the Los Angeles Temple in 1965. They moved to Coalville, Utah, in 1969, where she worked at the Summit County Medical Center. In 1975, they relocated to Bountiful, Utah, where she continued to raise her family. She grew and excelled in her nursing career, moving from direct patient care to administrative work.
Sharon was blessed with 6 children: Angela (Michael), Daniel (Vicki), Matthew (Jill), Jared (Amanda), Emily (Curt), and Sarah (Stephen). Sharon was an amazing seamstress, and her creations now serve as a sweet legacy of love. She shared her talent by making beautiful clothes and costumes for her family and countless theater productions. She also loved singing with her family, and they enjoyed performing together in many of those shows.
Sharon is survived by her siblings, Larry Richards and Judy Richards Kausen, all her children, 18 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her husband, John.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 5, at 2:00 pm in the Riverton LDS Chapel located at 12852 South 3200 West, Riverton, Utah. Burial at the Bountiful Cemetery will take place at a later date. Flowers and condolences may be sent care of Dan Morgan (12797 Ann Christie Court, Riverton, UT, 84065). Sharon’s family is grateful to the staff of the University of Utah Hospital who provided her with loving medical care, and all those who have expressed their love and support.
