Our beloved mother, sister, friend and grandmother, Linda Verlene Waters, passed away, at the age of 72, on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 in South Jordan, Utah. The wife of Jeffry Thomas Waters, daughter of Gilbert Leroy and Hazel Jane Hegwood Sigferson, Verlene was born on April 23, 1948 in Prescott, AZ.
Verlene loved taking care of others, particularly cooking for them. She was an amazing cook. Verlene learned to cook by practicing on her beloved husband, Jeff when they were first married. She honed her skills after some complete kitchen disasters with Jeff. Verlene was a nurse by profession and passion. She was an oncology nurse practitioner and worked in many different nursing fields. She ended her 40+ year nursing career as a Junior High Nurse in Tuba City, AZ. She loved working with this age group. Verlene enjoyed animals, cooking, reading, family history, playing games with her family, and organizing everything. She will be greatly missed by all who truly knew her.
