Obituary |


Our beautiful sweet Jenny, precious daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend, has moved on to share her light with those who have gone before us.

Her vibrant personality and pure heart touched everyone who had the privilege of crossing her path. Her stunning beauty and sweet smile always lit up the room whenever she came in. She loved to sit in-between her brothers, put her arms around their shoulders and join in their fun sense of humor.

She gave unselfishly to anyone who needed help, and even if it was the last dollar in her purse, she would stop to hand it to someone in need, whether it was family, friend or a stranger on the street. She opened her heart and home to anyone who sought solace, even while facing adversity in her own life. If she ever overheard a comment that could be considered judgmental or discriminatory, she was quick to speak up and remind everyone that we should always look for the good.

To honor the example of unconditional love she set, and with the help of her arms around our shoulders, we will stay close as a family and be happy in spite of missing her so very much. We are proud and honored to have had the chance to have Jenny in our life.

Jenny is survived by her mother, Laurie Smith; father and step-mother, Bradley and Shawna Anderson; brothers, Josh and Jared Anderson; half-sisters, Ashley and Allyson; grandparents, Ronald and Connie Smith, and James and Lois Anderson; aunts and uncles, Rick, Sandie, Erich, Wendy, Brian, Brent, and Lisa; 14 cousins; and niece, Faith.

The family would like to give special thanks to everyone who has touched Jenny’s life over the years. There are also no words to describe our appreciation to the wonderful staff at University of Utah hospital, who so compassionately helped our precious angel.

A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2006 at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 1007 West South Jordan Parkway (10600 South), South Jordan, Utah. You are invited to join the family for visitation between noon and 1 p.m. The tribute to Jenny will begin at 1 p.m.
