Laura Ann Malcom—our beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend—was born on February 4, 1964, to John and Carol Tapp in Salt Lake City, Utah. She departed this life in her home on March 13, 2018. She is survived by her daughter, Miyah Malcom; father, John Tapp; sisters, Cindy (Mike) Heiner, Tami (Brent) Carlson, and Lisa Tapp; and pet Yorkie, Bentley. She was preceded in death by her mother, Carol Tapp.\r\n\r\nFollowing Laura’s graduation from Brighton High School, she began working in the nail industry and enjoyed a vibrant career for many years at Hair Today. She married Scott Malcom (later divorced) with whom she had a beautiful daughter, Miyah. Laura was well known for boasting Miyah’s accomplishments, her hit recipes, and her flair for the dramatic. Later in life, she conquered breast cancer and treasured her association with the women in Susan G. Komen’s annual Race for the Cure. Generous to a fault, she always opened her heart and home to anyone down on their luck. Regardless of her individual circumstance, she never passed up the opportunity to serve others. In the last week of her life, she cooked a large pot of soup and fed the homeless in an area close to her home. \r\n\r\nIn her honor, a Memorial Service will be held at the Red Butte Garden Orangerie (300 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, UT) on March 23, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. For those in attendance, Miyah encourages black dress attire and a donation of nonperishable food. In line with Laura’s generous spirit, the donated food items will be taken to The Road Home.
