LuJean Despain Morgan

December 22, 1933 ~ December 26, 2020

LuJean Despain Morgan passed away peacefully at her home on December 26, 2020, with her family by her side.

LuJean was born at home on December 22, 1933, to S. Elmo and Thea Westover Despain in the small town of Granite, Utah, the fourth of six children. She lived in Granite most of her life and attended Granite Elementary, Sandy Junior High, and graduated from Jordan High School. After writing back and forth to her sweetheart, Stanley Levern Morgan, she left her family and friends and joined him where he was stationed with the Marines in Hawaii. They were married on May 14, 1954, in the Laie Hawaii Temple and then lived in a little town called Kailua. They eventually made their home in Granite with their five children.

A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served in many capacities in the Relief Society, Primary, and Sunday School. Her lifelong love was gardening. She loved plants and flowers and found joy in taking care of her large, beautiful garden. She also loved and cared for her large, beautiful family, including 18 grandchildren and 45 great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband, Stanley, and her five children, Lee, Linda (Ron) Wells, Patricia (Jeffery) Leavitt, Jackie (Kelly) Moffitt, and Clay (Julie) Morgan, as well as her brother L. Weston (Charlene) Despain, and her sister Ardeen (Ron) Simmons. She is preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Norma (Keith) Hansen, Edwina Archer, and her brother Sheron (Genevieve) Despain.

Special thanks to Silverado Hospice and Visiting Angels for their extraordinary care and compassion. Funeral services will be held virtually via Zoom on January 2, 2021 at 1:00 PM. Service details can be found below. Interment will take place at Larkin Sunset Gardens in Sandy, Utah.

What a lovely obituary. For me, she was a terrific aunt. I never heard a negative word from her; and her love for her family was apparent. She was a kind soul and will be missed. Again, my condolences...
