JoDeene EdringtonOctober 29, 1952 ~ November 4, 2017 (age 65)
JoDeene Edrington, or JoDee, at age 65, passed away at the Utah Valley Hospital in Provo on November 4, 2017. She was flown there just the day before, from Lapoint, Utah, where she has lived for five years. After many years of battling multiple medical hardships, she went to be with her dad, sister and brother (Kay, Rona, and Hank Edrington) with loved ones by her bedside.
She graduated from Utah State, studying Elementary Education. She went on to be an esteemed educator everywhere she taught, including East Elementary, Roosevelt Middle School, and Lakeview Academy. She taught a variety of age groups, but third grade was her favorite.
In 2001, JoDee had survived ovarian and uterine cancer. Despite this, she was a fighter and continued her career as a teacher for many years up until 2012. Her brightest and most hopeful moments in life were the adoption of her three children; Brett, Rona Lee, and Joshua. This joy continued later in her life with six wonderful grandkids.
She is survived by her mother, Josephine Edrington, her four siblings, Scott, Cody, Chess and SannaLee, and her children Brett Hansen, Rona Lee Hansen, and Joshua Hansen.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. at the Lapoint LDS Chapel where a viewing will be held from 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Burial will be in the Lapoint Cemetery.
