Jolene was very artistic with her oil and watercolor paintings. She brought light into our lives with her beautiful art work.

In her last few years she enjoyed antique cars and big game hunting with her husband Bruce; they especially enjoyed their trips to Alaska.
For Jolene, spending time with family, especially her granddaughters Kambrie and Paisley, was so valuable to her with bike rides, hiking, and camping.
