Elizabeth Jayne Louise Gayson McPartland, age 30, daughter of Jeff and Ina Gayson, died peacefully April 2, 2016, in Cedar City, Utah. Elizabeth was born on August 30, 1985, in Provo, Utah. She was married to Cole McPartland, and they are the loving parents of the adorable Ada Jayne Suzanne McPartland, age 3.
She attended and graduated from Canyon View High School; during her years as a Falcon she was a proud cheerleader, (she was completely convinced that cheer was a sport). Elizabeth then went on to study English at Southern Utah University where she was a member of the sisterhood Alpha Phi.
Elizabeth was diagnosed with the Behcet’s disease at the age of 16 and has been battling it ever since. She is a loving, kind, bubbly, selfless, daughter of God who always tried her hardest to make everyone around her feel loved and happy. Her unconditional love for her family will continue to be felt. She was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. Having a child with her Auto Immune Disease was a miracle. Her beloved Ada Bug was her life, her love, her entire being. Watching them together, laughing, learning, loving, just being with each other was an inspiration to us all.
- Funeral services will be held Friday, April 8, 2016, at 10 a.m. in the LDS church located at 638 E. Canyon Center Drive Cedar City, Utah, under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary.
