HYDE PARK — Hyde Park Mayor Sharidean Flint has died at age 62 after battling aggressive brain cancer, city officials announced in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
Flint was sworn in as the first female mayor of Hyde Park in January 2018. Prior to her term as mayor, Flint served as a city council member for years and on the city's planning commission for three years. According to the city, some of her accomplishments included oversight of the development of 600 South Road and improving the water system with new water lines and reservoirs. Flint was also recognized for her advocacy of the North Park Police Department.
The North Park Police Department posted on Facebook in her memory, saying, "We are forever grateful for the many memories we have of Mayor Flint, her guidance and genuine passion to serve others. You will forever live in our hearts."
Flint moved to Hyde Park in 2003. The city recognized her for her love for people, horseback riding, and raising dogs.
"Sharidean had a quirky sense of humor. She had a zest for life and never let the negative outweigh the positive. She had the most forgiving heart. She will be deeply missed," the city's post reads.
Flint is survived by her husband, Kevin, five children and seven grandchildren.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the North Park Police Department, 575 E. 2500 North, North Logan, UT 84341.
