Krista Mower, 1983 ~ 2011

“In the beginning was a word, and that word was Family.”

Our Krista Carol Mower, age 27, passed through the veil and reunited with her daughter, Taylor Lyn “Tater Bug,” on July 29, 2011 in Carbon County, Utah from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident that also took the life of her soul mate and the love of her life.

She was born in Moab, Utah on Sept. 18, 1983 to Joe and Debbi Carrigan Mower.

Krista was an amazing mother to her daughter Brookie, best friend to her sister Shelbi, and the greatest daughter her mom and dad could ever hope for. At the time of her death, her life was almost complete. She was happiest just being with her family, and she needed nothing more than Brook and Paul to make her day whole.

Krista leaves behind, to cherish her memory, her daughter, Brooklyn Jade Mower, parents, Joe and Debbi Mower, all of Price; older sister and best bud, Shelbi Mower, Moab; nieces, Ericka Jo, Moab, Shania and Maegen, of Wellington, Utah; grandparents, Carol Carrigan, Moab; Henry Mower, Payson; and a very large extended family and a boatload of friends.

She was preceded in death by her older brother, Donavon Lyn Mower; youngest daughter, Taylor Lyn Mower; and her Papa, Sonny Carrigan and Grandma, Betty Mower.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, Aug. 4, at 10 a.m. at the Price North LDS Stake Center (449 North 100 East). Family will be at Mitchell Funeral Home (233 East Main Street) in Price on Wednesday evening from 7-9 p.m. and at the stake center Thursday from 9-9:45 a.m. She will be laid to rest in the Cliffview Cemetery in Price, next to her brother, Donavon and her daughter, Taylor.

Arrangements are entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price. Friends may share memories of Krista at

In remembrance of Krista, a memorial fund has been established for Brooklyn at Eastern Utah Community Credit Union.

“In the end there’s a word, and that word is Forever.”
