Our beloved Mom, grandma, and sister, Jolene Christensen, 80, returned to our father in Heaven surrounded by her family. She was born to Ivan and Ina Adams in Layton where she lived throughout her childhood. She graduated from Davis High School in 1960 and then from cosmetology. She worked for the IRS and Hill Air Force Base.
Jolene married her high school sweetheart Ronald Christensen on June 10, 1960. They were later sealed in the Sale Lake Temple on March 22, 1986 for time and all eternity. They have 2 boys, John and Barry.
She loved bowling, making quilts, fleece blankets, crocheting plastic hand bags, cooking, baking, camping, hunting, fishing, being with her family and serving others. She also loved the Utah Jazz so much that she would watch all their games and kept her own player stats.
She was known throughout her community as the Pizza Lady.
Jolene was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served as a temple ordinance worker for 17 years, which she dearly loved. She also served as a cannery worker, compassionate service committee and RS birthday card specialist.
