PRICE/SALT LAKE CITY - Surrounded by family, Susan (Susie) Marie Acerson passed without pain to a spiritual existence on April 20, 2007 to play with her favorite lab, Chaco.
She was born in Salt Lake City to Lenice L. Nielsen and Mary (Allred) Wyatt. Susan was the third of four children, Carol Coles (Arne), Edward Nielsen (deceased) and Bill Nielsen (Donna).

They had met on a whitewater-rafting trip with her daughter Shannon Marie Smith (Shadow). They were later solemnized after a scary drive through a snowstorm in the Manti LDS Temple, March 3, 1989. She followed her heart to Green River and became a loving and caring mother to Teresa N., Brian S., and Summer Anne Acerson.

As an active member of the LDS church, she served in many callings. She enjoyed her opportunities to share her life experiences to guide and direct the youth.
Her life was filled with outdoor activities, which included whitewater rafting (guide), horseback riding through the mountains, chasing her dogs and husband across sage and sandstone. She became a full time member of the tadpole clan. Gardening and flowers were her passion and relief time.

PRICE/SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Pete Terry "Pete" Harmon left this world on April 15, 2007 surrounded by his family; but his passing will leave a gap in all of the places where his bright smile and twinkling eyes are expected.
Pete was born in Price on March 12, 1936 to Eveline Jane and Brigham Harmon. He was the oldest son of four siblings and honed his leadership skills in the manner of big brothers everywhere.
He joined the Navy after completing high school, never dreaming that this career choice would truly take him around the world. He served his country honorably for 20 years and then used the skills developed in service of his country to create a unique job niche, which he filled expertly until his final "final" retirement in 2001.
After retiring he developed a passion and talent for cooking; primarily developing recipes that featured the use of his favorite hot peppers.
He served on the executive committee at the American Legion Post 300 where he enjoyed the company of friends and proved that he never in his life met a stranger.
He loved traveling, he worked hard, and he played fair. His combination of charm, generosity and loyalty made him the truest and best man that he could be; but it was his sense of humor that set the hook. His last joke for us all was that in his passing he made true the adage that "nothing is certain but death and taxes."
He is survived by beautiful bride of more than 50 years, Annie Lavone Rock Harmon; two daughters, Cena Michelle Harmon (Ron Logdahl) and Barbara Ann Harmon-Cowherd (Kevin); and four grandchildren, Emma Lisette Logdahl, Calvin Rhys Cowherd, Aidan Bryce Cowherd and Zoe Bryn Cowherd. He also leaves faithful companion, Peanut, devoid of a warm lap in which to cuddle. He was preceded in death by parents (Jennie and Brig); oldest sister (Barbara); and younger brother (Mike).
A celebration of Pete's life was at the American Legion Post 300, 3290 Grosenbacher Road on Friday, April 20 at 3 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the American Legion Post 300 (www.alpost300.com) or to a charity of choice.
