No Service Will Be Conducted

Marsha Rawlins passed away Monday, May 6 at her home with her husband and furry friend by her side. She was born in Walla Walla, Washington on January 28, 1948 to Reed LeGrande Rawlins and Ethel Scott Rawlins. Marsha married Joe Weeks on July 30, 1982 in Hyde Park, Utah.

Due to Reed’s work the family moved quite often, living in Washington, Meridian, Idaho, and Finally settling in Trenton, Utah. She attended school in Ada County, Lewiston Junior High, Sky View High School and going on to graduate from USU with a bachelor Degree in Special Education.

Marsha loved animals, especially kitty cats and spotted dogs. She loved flowers and working in her flower beds until back problems put a stop to that. She was a volunteer at heart and she had a knack for organizing other volunteers. She was a helpline volunteer and was on the Rape Crisis Team which turned into CAPSA. She was recognized with many awards including the Carnation Community Service Award from Govenor Norm Bangerter in 1985. She said, “he smelled really good”. She worked for AVA at the time they were at the Old Whittier School and she fell in love with that old building. When she heard that the school district was going to sell the building and that it might meet the wrecking ball, she formed a board of directors and the school district sold them the building. She put her heart and soul into turning it into a community center until her health made her retire.

Marsha was preceded in death by her parents, a sister Deanna Robinson (Dean) and a brother Drew Rawlins. She is survived by her husband, daughter Cindy Jo Weeks (Logan), Sister Alaine Carter (Maurice), Corrine, Utah, brothers Scott Rawlins (Karen) of Hyde Park, Utah and Daniel Rawlins (Marilyn) of Seattle, Washington.

The family would like to thank Dr. Brad Chambers and staff at the Budge Clinic and everyone at IHC who helped Marsha in the last couple years. As well as the EMT’s, Paramedics, Lewiston Fire Fighters and First Responders a big thank you. As Marsha wished she was cremated.

There will be no services held at this time. A celebration of life will be held at a later time. Services are under the direction of Cache Valley Mortuary 80 W 4200 N Hyde Park, Utah 435 787 8514. Memories or condolences may be shared online at www.cvmortuary.com.

Tributes

To Joe and the Rawlings family: we are so sorry gor your loss. Marsha has been loved dearly by all of us. Many happy and fun experiences are tied to her memory. She is remembered very fondly. The girls always had fun and had great respect for Marsha. Lee always spoke kindly and fondly of her also. I'm sure he has greeted her with open arms on "the other side" as it be. We miss him greatly but know he is getting together for a great time with friends and family. We love you Joe and you are welcome anytime at our home.

Marsha and I became acquainted when she was a volunteer at Helpline and I was hired as Coordinator. Even though there were many things we saw differently, she wrote a note to me that I still cherish. I appreciated her friendship and leadership in the community. May you be comforted at her passing.

Marsha served many years on the Board for OPTIONS for Independence. I always enjoyed her and her spunky spirit. I had no idea she was Scott's sister (a neighbor and friend). Condolences to Scott, Karen and all who will mourn the loss of an awesome lady. See you later Marsha!

I was lucky to have met Marsha Rawlins when living in Lewiston, UT in the recent few years. Marsha is kind and caring. We enjoyed hearing about her experiences working with Special Needs and other education professionals. The word that describes her best is caring. It always made us feel welcome when she gave us her warm smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate and extended family.
