Mallory Monroe, 1

BURLEY — Mallory Beth Monroe, the 1-year-old daughter of Matt and Shannon Turner Monroe of Burley, passed away peacefully in her daddy’s arms in the early morning hours of May 3, 2011.
Our beautiful Mallory came into this world on Jan. 11, 2010, determined to change our lives forever – and she did! Though Mallory lived only 15 short months, this dark curly-haired, big blue-eyed, porcelain-skinned little girl shared with us and others what Heaven is truly like. Within milliseconds of seeing her, we knew she would face challenges on this earth that most of us wouldn’t agree to if we had the choice before coming to this life. Her smile could melt a glacier.
She leaves with faith-filled broken hearts her parents, Matt and Shannon Monroe and siblings, Abby, Kate and Luke. all of Burley; her grandparents, Gary and Glena Turner and Lloyd and Julie Monroe, all of Burley; her great-grandparents, Lovell and Beth Turner of Declo, Ralph (LeNore) Henderson of Bountiful, Utah, and Miriam Monroe of Beaver, Utah; and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins who simply adored her.
The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 7, at the Burley LDS 3rd and 7th Ward Church, 2200 Oakley Ave., with Bishop Steve Garn officiating. Burial will be in the Pleasant View Cemetery in Burley.
Friends and family may call from 7 until 8 p.m. Friday at the Rasmussen Funeral Home, 1350 E. 16th St., in Burley, and from 10 until 10:45 a.m. Saturday at the church.
