Louise Marie Hartvigsen Harvey, 54, passed away following a long illness on May 3, 2021, in Columbia, Mo.
She was born in San Bernardino, Calif., on June 28, 1966, and was immediately adopted by her parents, Jay and Janice Hartvigsen, Bountiful, Utah. Her infectious smile and a trip to Disneyland to pick her up made her an instant hit with all of her siblings.
She was raised in Bountiful, and graduated from Bountiful High School in 1984. She married Paul Harvey in 1994. They moved to Missouri in 1999. She eventually settled her young family in Palmyra, Mo.
Her greatest accomplishment in life was her family, her four children and one granddaughter. She adored them immensely and worked up to three jobs at a time to provide for them, after her husband passed way.
Louise found joy in the small things of life. She was very loving, tender-hearted, charitable, and a happy person – always making the best of what came her way. She was very people oriented and made many friends. She loved little children, holding babies and helping others.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband.
Louise will be deeply missed by her daughters, Amber (Schyler) Losson, Alicia Harvey and Alexis (Teran Brewer) Harvey; her son, Travis Harvey; her step-sons, Paul T. Harvey Jr. and Christopher M. Harvey; her granddaughter, Sophia; and a soon-to-be-born grandson; her siblings, Joseph Hartvigsen, David Hartvigsen, Julie Webb, Greg Hartvigsen and Carol Ferguson; and many, many cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and friends.
A memorial service will be held in her honor Friday, May 7, at 10:30 a.m. at the Memorial Funeral Home, Crematory & Memorial Park Cemetery, located at 1217 Business Loop 70 W, Columbia, Mo. 65202. The services may be viewed online at: www.facebook.com/MemorialColumbia/videos/.
