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.
