BRIGHAM CITY - Anna Shea Liston was called home to her Heavenly Father on Saturday, March 9, 2013. Cradled in her father and mother's arms, her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Shea had touched in some small way throughout her short, very memorable life. Shea was a music aficionado. She loved songs from all genres and often introduced her siblings to songs she had been listening to. Attending concerts was her passion, and she often could be found listening and singing to music. She had a quick mind, and loved to use it to strategize to a win in any game, especially Settlers of Cataan or poker. She, to our knowledge, never lost a game of monopoly. In her home, she was considered the "Yatzee Queen". She was a lover of animals. Shea gained great joy in learning how to ride horses. She loved to play with grandpa's Llamas and over the course of her life time owned several pet birds, dogs, cats, fish, rabbits, turtles, chickens and worms. She wanted to own a lizard or a snake, but was unfortunately told NO. When a sick iguana needed a nurse, Shea took on the task and snuck him into her home where he made a brilliant recovery. Nobody saw the world quite like Shea, which why she was such a fantastic photographer. She loved to capture the beauty she saw in the world, so most of her pictures were of other people. She loved people more than anything in her life, and every where she went she drew a crowd to her. She genuinely cared for them, and spent her entire life looking to the needs of others. She didn't care what you wore or what you did or didn't do, she viewed everyone as children of God and always extended to them love and acceptance and support. Her smile was angelic, her laugh contagious. Her family will miss them both dearly. Throughout her struggles in life she continued to grow in beauty and strength. She gave us all courage and hope and reminded each of us the precious gift love and family is in this life. Daddy's special little girl was born at Fort Benning, Georgia on October 4, 1987. She graduated from Box Elder High School on June 2, 2006. She is survived by her parents, Kelton and Jeneanne Liston; five siblings: Kennan (Kiley) Liston; Brandon Liston; Caroline (Stewart) Peterson; Jenessa Liston, Nick Liston; grandparents, Walter Davis, Audrey Liston and Charlene Davis. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Gloria Glazier and William Liston. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 16, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at the Box Elder Stake Center, 420 South 800 West, Brigham City, UT. Viewings will be held on Friday, March 15th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:30 to 12:30 p.m. at the Stake Center. Interment will be in the Brigham City Cemetery.

THINK: Of stepping on shore And finding it Heaven! Of taking hold of a hand And finding it God's Hand! Of breathing a new air And finding it celestial air! Of feeling invigorated And finding it immortality! Of passing from storm and tempest To an unbroken calm; Of waking up and finding Yourself HOME! --Robert E. Selle (c)

Such a beautiful girl your strength through this whole ordeal has been example to me and many others. You will be missed! Prayers to your amazing family at this difficult time.
Kelton, Jeneanne and Family,
In such a time of sorrow I am lost for words but I found comfort in this scripture. It is nice to know that the Lord God promises to restore us and through his grace we are able to live forever. Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
I love you guys,
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
My heart goes out to your family as I just found out about Anna. I have had the pleasure of being able to assist in medical procedures to help aid comfort and relief the past few months. The first time I saw her, I noticed her eyes and could tell she had a beautiful soul. The few times we have interacted, she always made me smile. She was so postive and made us laugh. She will be missed here on earth, but I know she is free of any pain she had before. I pray that the Lord will continue to comfort your family and to remind you that He is ever present to carry you through this time. She will be missed by many.
I know I'm late... but I was only recently reminiscing about high school and decided to look up old friends on Facebook. I'm so sorry for your loss. Shea was a wonderful person. We were in the same grade and she was always kind to me. Even during some of my hardest times in school when even my closest friends turned against me. I just wanted you to know that she was in my thoughts.
