Chandra Jean (McDonald) Salisbury, 59, returned to her heavenly home on March 28, 2015, after a valiant battle with a long illness. Her devotion to her family and her firm belief in God supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.

Chandra was born to Bartley and Caree McDonald, in Denver, CO, on September 25, 1955. She was immersed in the LDS community that would be her lifelong support from an early age. She graduated from Alameda High School in Denver. She served a mission in Milan, Italy, 1976-1977.

Chandra was blessed with a loving family. She married her best friend, Elmore Hearst Salisbury III. Chandra was a loving mom of two children, Alicia Marie Grunig and Michael Hearst Salisbury. She taught them to read and write, and often took them on long family trips to see the natural beauty of God's creation. From the very beginning, she dedicated her children to God and encouraged them to explore the beauty of the gospel.
