December 8, 1961 — July 9, 2016

Mary Wardell, 54, of West Jordan, Utah, passed away suddenly on Saturday, July 9, 2016, at her home.

Mary was born on December 8, 1961, in Twin Falls, Idaho to John and Ruth Crawford. Mary attended school in Buhl and graduated with the class of 1980. She attended two years at Idaho State University in Pocatello, before moving to Salt Lake City, Utah. She loved the skiing and the mountains in that area and it was there that she met her husband, Harold.
