In Memory

Mary Ellen Larsen

Mary Ellen Larsen

(unable to find an obituary)

Mary Ellen Larsen passed away on February 28, 2019 after a year-long battle with cancer. Mary Ellen managed UVU's Wee Care Center for nearly 13 years and loved nothing more than taking care of children and seeing families succeed.

In honor of Mary Ellen’s devotion and legacy, UVU is establishing the Mary Ellen Larsen Memorial Scholarship to support childcare needs of parent-students at UVU. UVU shared this idea with Mary Ellen before her passing, and she humbly agreed to the request. If you would like to help continue Mary Ellen’s passion for helping children (and their parents) learn and grow, donations can be made in her honor. The donation page is available here.

I'm really sorry to hear that Mary Ellen has passed away. It was really fun connecting with her in 2009, and she was one of the ones I was looking forward to seeing again.


Rest in peace, Mary Ellen! Wait, strike that. I bet she's up there networking up a storm. You go, girl!
