Marilee Hart passed away peacefully in her home on May 5, 2022, surrounded by her three children after a short battle with cancer. Marilee was born on December 25, 1961 to Marvin and Mary Black and raised in Utah. She studied communicative disorder at Utah State University and worked in Human Resources before dedicating herself to raising her children full time.
Marilee was an amazing mother to her children Josh, Alexander and Jillian Hart. She would inspire and help those around her to reach their dreams. She would never shy away from a hard conversation to make sure others were doing well. Her loving and caring nature gained her the title of a second mother to many others who she cared for and was a role model to. Her quick wit and humor would bring a smile out any day of week. On many occasions she would enjoy embarrassing her loved ones for a good laugh. She believed in having a good time regardless of embarrassment.
Marilee was an avid dog lover and rescued several since 1998. She would have an immediate unique bond with each of them and called them her dog children. You could always find her sitting with them in the living room with her contagious smile. The company of family, friends and her animals filled her heart with love and joy.
Marilee is survived by her three children, Josh, Alexander and Jillian Hart, her granddaughter Vivian, her brothers Michael Black, Donald (Joanne) Black, Russell Black, and her sister Barby (Lowell) Shelley. She will be missed greatly by everyone she touched the lives of. The loss of her has left a great void in everyone’s hearts but the love and amazing memories she left everyone will carry on for generations.
