Kayleen Peterson Newman Jimenez (Kay Kay) passed away on Thursday, May 5, 2022, at the age of 56. Kayleen was born on July 31, 1965, to Della Rae Hampton Peterson and Neldon H. Peterson in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the youngest of four girls.
Kayleen married Mark Newman on October 16, 1998. They spent many happy wonderful years together going to Lagoon, hockey games, baseball games, and football games. They loved being together and were very rarely separated. Mark left her too soon on May 29, 2004.
Kayleen had a very big, giving heart and a smile that could light up a room. She was never blessed with children of her own, so her nieces and nephews and the children of her nieces and nephews were very special to her. She loved to bring them presents and candy.
On December 31, 2015, she married Vincent Jimenez. Her sparkling eyes and beautiful smile melted his heart.
Kayleen enjoyed shopping, watching movies, word search books and Christmas was her favorite holiday (which she started celebrating in August). She loved babies, shoes, clothes, purses, jewelry, lip gloss, pens, notebooks, and driving her car but spending time with her family was her greatest joy. She loved to travel and went on many trips with her parents, memories that have always been cherished.
She is survived by her husband, Vincent Jimenez, her parents Neldon and Della Rae Peterson; sisters – Adri Ann Peterson Wootton (Doug), Michelle Peterson Jensen (Chris), and Sandy Peterson Doxey (Scott), and many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews.
Preceded in death by Mark Newman, husband, and Coen Miller, nephew.

Dear Aunt Nelda and Family My deepest sympathy to you all at this time. I am so sorry I couldn't make it to the service! My health wouldn't allow it. You are in my heart and prayers. Love you all. Your Nephew Brent
Kayleen was a ray of beautiful sunshine. Softly speaking, with a laugh that was contagious. When she first diagnosed with cancer she took it like a Real lady. She never missed a beat. As much as she was going through she was always asking what can I do to help you. I have to say farewell to my friend, you will be missed. As someone comes from the parking lot I’ll wait to see if it’s you. As your reunited with other family members, those still here will know. Your watching over them. May you Rest In Peace beautiful lady.
I am truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Love Danelle Brinkerhoff
