Laura Dawn Stevens Phister passed away peacefully in her sleep at home on August 15, 2022. She was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Connie Stevens on September 30, 1984. She was raised in Magna, Utah. She graduated from Central High School in 2003 and was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Laura found and married the love of her life Keith Phister on January 26, 2006. Together they built a life for their son Casey Jayden Phister, who she loved and cherished dearly. One of her greatest accomplishments was seeing Casey graduate high school. They also welcomed many pets into their home as Laura had a deep love for both cats and dogs.
Laura spent her life in service to others. She was the primary caregiver for her mother, Connie. She was always thoughtful and caring of her mother’s needs checking in with her daily, making sure she had food, and other necessities.
If you wanted a bargain of any kind, Laura was your go to girl. She could sniff out a “good deal” quicker than anyone and she would deliver it to your home faster than Walmart or Amazon.
Laura was a dedicated entrepreneur where she would look for ways to be of service to others while she supplied an income for the family. She was an uber driver, newspaper carrier, and a food delivery driver for many different companies through the years and was most recently employed by Papa Pal Services where she visited with the homebound, helped organize their homes, laundered clothes, chauffeured, and was of service of every kind, meeting their every need. As a final service to others Laura donated body tissue, bone and her eye corneas.

She enjoyed playing games with her family including a family favorite game of “Fat Lip” (named by her grandpa Wilford) as well other board and card games such as “Hand and Foot” and “Scum”.
