Jeanne worked for 29 years as a school lunch lady for the Duchesne County School District. Her hobbies included crocheting and reading the scriptures. She was an active member of the LDS Church and served faithfully in various callings. She was an ordinance worker at the Vernal Temple since the time that it opened. She was such a sweet lady who quietly took care of everyone, and loved having her family around her. On one of her las days with us, her family enjoyed her spunky personality, her quick with and her teasing. Through her life she had a quiet strength and determination that saw her through the many ups and downs. She cared deeply for the people she loved and always had cookies ready to share. Her chocolate chip cookies were famous with her family and friends. Her great faith in the Lord was an example to each of us. She will be greatly missed by all of us who knew and loved her.
