Our beloved Barbara Louise Ellis Larsen passed away on Sunday, May 30, 2021. Barbara was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on May 2, 1962. She is the daughter of Joan Charlene Ahlander Ellis Roberts and George Reid Ellis. Barbara was named of both of Joan and Reid’s sisters. Our “Little Barbara” leaves behind her daughters, Amy Charlene Larsen and Rachel Dawn Osness, as well as her much loved grandson, Kyler Charles Larsen Smith.
Barbara is survived by her daughters, grandson, sisters; Dianna, Felicia, Cindy and Jenny and brothers; Robert (Clayton), Carl and Russel. She also leaves behind a large family of nieces, nephews, in-laws, cousins and “adopted” siblings, children and friends who are going to miss her very much. Preceded in death by her mother and father.
The world seems lonelier now that Barbara has returned to those waiting for her in heaven. Jesus has taken the wheel so Barbara could be set free to enter the arms of the angels. To know her was to love her and love her we did. Her smiled lit up the darkness and her sense of humor was unrivaled.
The family wishes to thank everyone who has been there for Barbara and us during this difficult time.
A Celebration of Barbara’s life will be held on June 12, 2021, from 3 to 5 pm at 361 Edith Avenue,
Salt Lake City, Utah. Please contact Amy at 385 216-5722 for details.
We will be observing COVID protocols.
