Heaven gained a sassy angel. Our beloved mother, grandmother and friend passed away peacefully on March 4, 2013. Until the very end her big loving heart kept her here with her family. JenaVee Moffitt Bangerter was born January 9, 1922 in Pole Cat, Wyoming to Leo Warren Moffitt and Hannah Evelyn Johnson. She married her sweetheart, Donald W. Bangerter on August 16, 1941. The marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. They built a home in Bountiful where they raised their family of five children.
Jen had a great love of music which started at a very young age. Her love for singing eventually led her to become part of the Bountiful Sweet Adeline’s. During that time she helped form a quartet that became known as “The Classics.” Many years were spent traveling and competing with the choir and quartet. Some of her dearest friendships were formed during that time.
Jen was a great example of service. She was part of the first Women’s Endowment Committee for the Festival of Trees. She served with them for 15 years and loved every minute of it. She was also a ‘Pink Lady’ for South Davis Community Hospital for many years. Always a stay at home mom; her greatest acts of service were there as she taught her family the things they needed to learn. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and leaves behind a great legacy of unconditional love.
She was preceded in death by her parents, seven sisters, two brothers and her loving husband of 65 years, Don. She is survived by her children Rick (Pat) Bangerter, Val (Pat) Bangerter, Shawna (Bob) Zesiger, Sherrie (DeWayne) Trythall and Wanda (John) Copier; 18 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren and 19 great-great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to express their thanks to those who have taken care of mother for the past 6 years, especially for the extra care she received from the aides and staff at The Legacy House in Bountiful for the two short weeks she was there. Also to the entire staff of Alpha Home Health & Hospice and her special aide Sarea, who had so much patience and love for Mother.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, March 11, 2013 at the Bountiful 31st Ward 585 East Center Street, Bountiful. Friends and family may visit Sunday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. at Russon Brothers Mortuary 295 N Main, Bountiful or Monday, 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. prior to the service. Interment at Bountiful Cemetary.
In lieu of flowers the family would invite donations be made to the Primary Children’s Medical Center.
