The story of Brigette

Brigette Lynnette Harris-Larrabee (March 22,1972-August 5, 2023) Brigette was born March 22, 1972 to proud parents Rosalie Lund and Edward Harris. Brigette was the baby of the family and had two siblings-Her sister, Lisa Massey, and her brother, Edward Harris Jr. Brigette loved her family and was proud of her upbringing. She often called herself a “military brat” as she was on the move frequently due to her parents service. She was funny, sassy, and her laugh was contagious, it filled the room. She knew the importance of respect, hard work, discipline, and unconditional love. She exemplified these to her family and those around her. Brigette attended Kearns High School in Kearns, UT. There she would meet a blonde boy with a mullet named Justin Larrabee who would help her with her locker on the first day of school. Time would pass and one thing led to another before they reconnected and started dating in 2001 and were married on August 13, 2005. JD, as he went by, had two kids named Jaden and Brynn that he brought with him. Brigette loved these kids as her own, she called them her “babies” and she was “Momma Bear”. Brigette and JD completed their family with the addition of their last son, Hunter, in September of 2002. She loved her family with all of her heart and gave a lifetime of memories to those she leaves behind. Brigette’s pride and joy was her kids and was her family. She was a believer in the value of a moment and taught her kids the value of making each of them count. The Larrabee family was a regular when it came to anything nerd related, even though Brigette would never fully claim that title. They attended many Star Wars, Marvel, DC movies premieres. Attended Comicon and Fan-x conventions in full costume on many occasions. One of the ones she was most proud of was her “Storm” costume from X-men. She loved Marvel and had a special place in her heart for Loki. Brigette also loved her Disney and Dreamworks movies having a special place in her heart for Eeyore and Toothless. She used the lessons in these movies to teach her kids and create many memories with them that will be remembered for the rest of their lives. Brigette was so many things to so many people. She was a Daughter, Sister, Mother, Aunt, Wife. She was so proud when she was able to add “Nana” to her list of titles when she was there to help welcome her first granddaughter into the world, Hailee Larrabee. She enjoyed spoiling Hailee and was always reminding her “Papa” that she is their grandchild and to “give in a little”. They loved watching movies together and having pizza parties in bed. Hailee even got to try Brigette’s famous spaghetti on more than one occasion. Brigette loved crafts and would spend hours scrapbooking, coloring, painting, building puzzles, or even writing poetry. She enjoyed the beautiful things in life and loved nature, especially animals of all shapes and sizes. Brigette was headstrong and not afraid to get her hands dirty. Many memories were made outside from camping to yard work, Brigette believed in enjoying the outdoors and was always looking for something to admire or make beautiful. Brigette left this earth and was reunited with her Father, Mother, Brother, Sister-in-law Amy, and many other family and pets on August 5, 2023. She is survived by her sister Lisa Massey. Her husband, JD Larrabee. Her children Jaden Larrabee, Brynn Larrabee, Hunter Larrabee. Her granddaughter, Hailee Larrabee, dozens of nieces and nephews she loved as her own, and many other loving friends and family.
