June-Noriene-Bouck-HarrisJune Noriene Bouck Harris passed away Sunday, April 16, 2005.

She was born June 14, 1916 to Hyrum Sidney and Cora Inez Staker Bouck. She treasured the many birthday cards from her “Special Lila” saying “The flags are flying just for you June,” and many others. Being raised in Magna, Utah, that was her town and she loved to visit the famous bakery, her “Old Farm House” and especially the “Special Cemetery up on the Hill.”

Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and Friend, was everybody’s Mom, Grams, Aunt, and Friend. She took pride in curing her neighbors’ hair and was an expert at perms, sewing, and always being there when they needed help. She was such a pretty lady with a big heart and personality, plus she was sometimes quite a tease — like hiding and jumping out at you with that high-pitched scream and laugh — quite scary, but a fun experience.

She was gifted to sing and dance the “Charlston.” No one could keep up with her. Her home was a welcome place where you were expected to sit at her table for famous cinnamon rolls, homemade bread, and everything from lamb chops to pheasant. A great cook, she made it all “from scratch.”

She married William Bean Harris July 24, 1937, later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. “Bill” preceded her in death June 16, 1995. A very special grandson, Troy Justyn Madsen, also returned to Heaven.

She loved The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and taught Primary for many years to young children who stopped by later, all grown up, to visit.

They got a big hug and told her thanks. Our “June Bug,” was very much loved and admired by all of us who had the opportunity to know her and what an honor it was. She will be greatly missed. She spent her life by putting her family always first with love and devotion, plus unbelievable care, patience, and understanding.

Blessed with two children: daughter, Joan Harris Elton; and son, James William Harris, who both survive her. She is also survived by grandson, Dustyn William Harris, her pride and joy; and special friends, Patty Gove and Terry Leach, Jeni Bevan and family; sister, Denza (Alma Kay) Iverson; brother, Danny (Barbara) Bouck; sister, Dina (Terry) Tuttle; sister-in-law, Afton Bouck; and many nieces and nephews.

Preceded in death by sisters, Louella (Byron) Thornton, Gertrude (George) Orullian, Daryl (William) Johnson, Cora Ericson; brothers, Sid and his son, Larry Bouck; Bill and his son, Steven Bouck.

Graveside services will be held Thursday, April 21, 2005 at the Tooele Cemetery at 1 p.m. A viewing will be held at Tate Mortuary, 110 S. Main St., Tooele, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
