On Saturday, July 25, 2020, Jane Stewart Andersen, returned to our Heavenly Father. She was born August 30, 1932 in Price, UT to Elder Johnson Asay and Caroline Sophia Asay.
She married Arlo V. Stewart on May 3, 1954 in the Salt Lake Temple. They raised two sons, Mike and Bob (Nancy), and two daughters, Joni and Patricia.
She later married LaMar Andersen and was welcomed in by his three children Greg (Tena), Dana, Julie (Dennis), and grandchildren.
She spent 30+ years volunteering at the LDS Hospital, at the Relief Society Building, and in education. She held many church callings throughout her life. She also spent many years working at See’s Candies.
The grandchildren always looked forward to Christmas because she would bring home chocolates and suckers. She loved to knit, and family and friends looked forward to receiving the washcloths that she would make regularly. She also loved to quilt but didn’t have the confidence to enter them into the State Fair until she was 80 years old. She won first place the first year she entered. She had many friends that she would quilt, knit and puzzle with, that she cared for dearly.
Jane was preceded in death by her husband Arlo, her husband LaMar and her brothers Richard, Melton and Elvin and her great granddaughter BayLee. She is survived by her siblings Buzz (Velma) and Ace (Lenda); her four children; her five grandchildren, Zac, Dustyn (Rachel), Toney, Chanel, and Jordan (Jess); her four great grandchildren Daysia, Ashtyn, Abel, and Jazzy; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.
A special thanks to the Summit Senior living Staff and her personal nurse, Jenna Barrington. They were kind and took the best care of her the last few years.

We love you the mostest, Grandma.
Jane and I got along the minute we met. We both said because we're Virgos, we were alike in many ways that brought us closer. We could talk for hours and laugh and just enjoyed each other's company. I will miss that the most. She married my dad and it was the best thing that happened to us after our mom passed. She was so good to dad and she was loved so much. I love you Jane.
Heaven has gained a sweet angle. Jane was such a sweetheart, and so caring to all. I remember her coming to Newman Elementary School and helping Mrs. Pinder with a group of students that needed a little extra help with some spelling words. I was one of those students. I always admired her in church, her hair was always styled so nicely, and she was full of wit and she always made me smile. Sister Stewart is the sweetest angel and most definitely earned her wings. My deepest condolences to all.
Jane was a very sweet lady, my mom Deon got pretty close to her the last couple months she lived across the hall from her at the Summit Senior Living and my mom will miss her greatly and was very sad when she past away!!!!, RIP Jane!!!!
Sending prayers and love to the family.
I wanted to let you know how much I will miss your mom. She was such a delight when you brought her to the office to see Dr. Westermann. We are both gone from there now, but I have my special memories of my patients. May your mom RIP. // Laura
