RICHFIELD, Utah – McKenzie Shear passed away one day after giving birth to a beautiful baby boy named Ridge on April 19.

McKenzie’s husband Cassidy is now the sole provider for his family, which also includes older children.

Cassidy’s mother and McKenzie’s mother now take turns watching baby Ridge while he works full time at a car dealership.

Cassidy was on the job when a show of love and support rolled into the service department.

Three Utah moms get picked up in a limo, showered with early Mother’s Day Gifts

SANDY, Utah – With Mother’s Day coming right up, the Fox 13 Dream Team had something special in mind for three mothers.

Aubree Murray of Orem is a dedicated mother of two who was also instrumental in supporting her brother Brenn in his battle against addiction.

Kristie Edelman or Riverdale runs a day care. In addition to caring for her own family, Kristie’s husband Casey says she goes above and beyond for her clients—helping other parents at all hours with difficult situations.

Kellie Larson of West Jordan has four kids and is going to school to become a teacher. Her mother Vickie says she’s the ‘glue’ that holds her family together across generations, including tending to relatives in poor health.

All three women were surprised when they got a knock on the door and Fox 13’s Big Budah asked them to step into a limousine.
