Kellie Jenson Humes, 63 passed away in her sleep on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 in Sandy, Utah.
She was born March 17, 1957 to K. Dean Jenson and Beverly Jenson Sandquist in Murray, Utah. She was blessed with two moms: Beverly, who gave birth to her, but died in a car accident when Kellie was 5 and Barbara, who has been her mom for the last 58 years.
On August 1, 1975 she married the love of her life, Bernie Humes in Sandy, Utah.
Kellie had a smile that lit up the room as soon as she walked in. She greeted everyone with a hug—even if she didn’t know you that well. She made friends with people who worked at the local grocery store, post office and anywhere else she went. She made many friends over the years at the mall and park where she did her morning walks with her sister Kristie.
She had many hobbies she loved: going camping with her family, working in her yard to make it look beautiful, cross stitching, painting and making ceramics for family and friends. In her earlier years she won a baking contest for the best peanut butter cookies. She made the best home cooked meals for her family.
She spent several years studying the Bible and building a relationship with her Heavenly Father. This provided her comfort in her journey. She knows God is with her and holding her hand as she returns home.
Kellie worked most recently as an Office Manager for X-Siding as well as a bookkeeper for family and friends.
Kellie is survived by her loving husband Bernie Humes, her two children: Jonathan Humes and Stephanie Humes; four grandchildren: Konnor, Brennen, Charlie and Kaleb. She is also survived by her mother, Barbara Anderson Jenson, siblings: Kathy Jenson Johnson (Kyle), Kristie Jenson Marchant (Kevin), Terry Jenson (Shannon), sister-in-law: Susie Humes Tripp (Rob), brother-in-law: Todd Humes and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that adored her. She was preceded in death by her father K. Dean Jenson and her mother Beverly Jenson Sandquist.
A graveside memorial will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road, (10600 South), Sandy, UT 84092.

I love this picture of her, she and I had these taken together years ago at Glamor Shots. That was a really fun day! I am really going to miss her big smile and hugs and most of all her friendship we had for the past 40 years.

I will never forget your spirit and kind heart to all of the kids and neighbors and friends! I would love to come to your house for coffee and a talk if i could today! And Bernie, Jon and Stephanie! We all love you! I may not be able to come to the service But i will be there in spirit! Love you all
We love you Kelly! You are so missed!
Kellie was an absolute joy to be around. I haven’t been able to see her for a number of years as I live overseas but whenever I think of Utah she always springs to my mind. I loved her personality, especially her laugh. She was the one who always made me feel most welcome whenever I was a sub at Bonco. She was kind enough to help my sister, Joey Jones, and I lay the wood for their kitchen floor. The three of us never stopped laughing. She will be missed but she’ll never far from my memories.
I'm so sorry for your loss. She will be missed and always remembered. She was a fun lady!
No words can express the emptiness I feel in losing you. We have been bestfriends since we were 5 years old. You were my Thelma to my Louise. You were my strength when I lost Tim. You were always there.
Kel give Tim one of your HUGS for me. I love you girlfriend. ALWAYS.
May your spirit soar and Gods love enfold you.
I LOVE YOU.
Where do I begin.....I first met Kellie thru our friend Ally Park. I liked her immediately. She was spunky and funny and kind hearted. Playing Bonco with Kellie was always entertaining. She could tell a mundane story, with her twist on it, and crack everybody up. She was a devoted Mother and Grandma. She loved her family deeply. She was a hard working woman and never shied away from a challenge. Lay tile? No problem!
When my husband passed away Kellie showed up at my door with my mail in hand. My yard is sloped and I can’t walk down it. She was going to come every day to get my mail and bring it up to the house. She was a good friend, Mother, Grandma, wife, and a great woman. I will miss your laugh and you❤️💐
To Humes family my sincere condolence to you all. Kellie was a beautiful women inside and out. She always had a kind word I loved talking with her about kids, grandkids and general. I had so much fun when she invited me to sub at Bonoco and meet the ladies always there for support and words of encouragement. She will be greatly missed by many. There are no words I can say to take away the pain or feeling of loss she will always be with you and looking down on you watching. She's out of pain and you will see her again.
Sending prayers, hugs to you all. PLEASE let me know if you need anything or a meal brought in.
Bernie Johnathan Stephanie and grandkids my condolences too all of you. I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I'm sure she will be watching over everyone of you at all times. Kelly will be missed by us all. Try and remember the good times the fun and funny times you guys shared together with her. If any of one of you need anything at all please let us know. We are all family thats what we do and that's what we are for.
May God comfort you during this time may HIS peace rest on you all knowing Kellie is with HIM
and made whole through the the shed blood of Jesus Christ who is King of all and calls us to be in HIS presence.
I have had the privilege of working w/ Kellie for the last 10 yrs. It is true that she has a way about her that makes other people feel loved and appreciated. She is very friendly and excepting person. She would hug employees as they came to visit and loved all unconditionally. Everyone at Xsiding misses you. I am sure you're in heaven sitting on your foot, talking to yourself. I'm sure you're also out walking the heavenly mall halls (WITHOUT ANY PAIN)
I feel the Lord has a special place for you and I believe you're watching over your family from above......Some people just don't need as long as others to prove themselves here on earth. Watch over us all and keep up the good work...Love LaMar
Bernie, Jonathan and Stephanie: I'm sending you my love and hugs ❤ 🤗 for this moment when we wish it wasn't so. I so loved Kellie and all that she did for all of us. She always had the best stories to tell and always saw the good in everybody. I got ill yesterday so I wasn't able to attend 😪.
I’m am deeply saddened by the loss of such an amazing friend! Her smile, her hugs, her kindness will always be in our hearts. I will forever miss her! My deepest love and sympathy to Bernie, Jonathon, Stephanie and all her grandkids that she loved so much!
Kel, not a day goes by that i dont think of you. All the stuff that would go over my head, and bless your patient heart you would explain it to me. And you would give me that smurky crooked smile. I always told you I was the funny one. Note I did not say the smart one.
You know I miss you, darn it Kellie I have a hole in my heart. I love you so much and miss you so much. Are there manholes up there ? Just asking.
I love you BFF always and forever. memories galore with you Bernie, Jonathon and Steph.
You were in my whole life. I was blessed. Take care of Tim for me, XOXO
