December 21, 1958 - November 13, 2016
Janene Abegg passed away in Provo, Utah, surrounded by family on Sunday, November 13, 2016, after succumbing to her battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born on December 21, 1958, in Tucson, Arizona to Joseph Bentley Abegg and Joan Meredith Needham. In 1970 her family moved to Orem, Utah, where Janene attended Lincoln Jr. High and Orem High School. She was a major book worm and a huge music junkie in her youth; she had an impressive collection of vinyl albums. She eventually relocated to Salt Lake City and married at the age of 26. She was blessed with two daughters and a step daughter. Janene cared deeply for her family. She loved her girls more than anything and her grandchildren were the light in her life. An active member of the LDS church, she considered her callings to work with the Primary and Young Women, a great blessing. Janene was an optimist and a survivor. She had an open mind and tender heart. She could never see a person or animal in pain without trying to help. Her genuine nature and bright spirit made the people who knew her, love her fiercely. She had an eye for finding beauty which she used in photography and interior design. Her favorite thing to photograph was her grandchildren. She also loved to travel; one of her favorite destinations was Makena Beach on Maui, Hawaii. Janene is survived by her mother, Joan; her daughters, Janene (Thomas), Brittany (Colton); step-daughter Olivia (Matthew); grandchildren Jeremy, Elizabeth, Keith, Matthew, Nathan, and Baeleon; her sisters Cheryl (Russell) and Shelley; and brother Robb. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, November 19, 2016 at the Edgewood Ward Chapel, 3511 North 180 East, Provo, Utah. Friends may call at the church from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to services. Interment, Orem City Cemetery, Orem, Utah. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.bergmortuary.com.
