Erma Marie Harmison, 92, passed away on November 22, 2011 in Orem, Utah. She was born October 20, 1919 to Scott and Gladys Baker Thompson. Her father, Scott, was the Provo Fire Chief and the family lived above the firehouse for many years. When he became Orem City’s first fire chief the family moved to Orem, Utah.

She was taught how to grow flowers by her grandparents and she loved to share her roses and plants starts with friends. She spent many hours keeping her yard beautiful.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
