Mary Jeanette Redfield

May 19, 1953 - April 9, 2012

Mary Jeanette RedfieldMay 19, 1953-April 9, 2012I’m off to see new things! I’m so glad to finally be free from the constraints of mortality. This cancer has held me back for long enough. I have so many things to do, new beaches to walk, sunrises to see. I’m excited that I’ll soon be greeted by my Mom, Daddy, and brother Byron. I know that my Savior will also be there, welcoming me back home. I will miss the ones that I have to leave behind, my daughters Ginger and Amber, my sons Eric and Jake, my sisters Emma and Roberta and brother George, my many nieces, nephews, cousins, and aunts. I think I’ll miss my grandkids most of all and I leave my heart with them; Braxton, Lexie, Hanna, Jackson, Cohen, Zane, and Elsa. They are still my most precious treasures. My hope for those I will leave behind is that they will not grieve too deeply. I want them to know that I’m happy, that I’m not gone but that I’ve just moved on to the next adventure, and that I will see them again someday. Goodbye for now. Think of me when you hear the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and know that I’ll be with you when you do.A graveside service will be held for me at Aultorest Memorial Park 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. My family and close friends will be gathering for a celebration of my life at the LDS church at 535 West 2700 South in Syracuse, Utah at 12:00 p.m.Services under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary.In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Ovarian Cancer Research fund (OCRF.org).

Losing a beloved is difficult, but there is mercy in her passing. Jeanette is home now, in the best of hands, in a beautiful kingdom, free at last. I have never met her family, but through knowing her I am assured that because of who she was, her faith, her gentle spirit, and her strength of character, she left a legacy of love and kindness behind. Though we all grieve, remember also to rejoice - for heaven sings with the light of a new angel.

What a most wonderful and courageous woman that Jeanette was! I remember her from Michigan as we became friends when she was the "new kid on the block" at church. We got to know Amber, Erik & Jake and our families intertwined from the relationship that our boys had with Jeanette's.boys. We also got a little closer as Don Dudley became involved in the family as well.My heart goes out to Jeanette's children and our love goes to you as I know there must be a huge void and much sadness at losing your mom. And for Don as I know he still cared about "jent" and still loved her--you have our prayers and love being sent your way. I know your memories will help you get through!! You children have many wonderful memories as I saw that Jeanette lived life to the fullest and made every moment count! She made sure she was leaving those wonderful memories behind to help you all get through.Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of you as well as our love and prayers!Love from the Ralph Gomora Family

Her smile always came from within... deep from within. She was always happy to see you and cared enough to listen as to how you were doing and what you had been up to. At times you could even sense a radiance about her...that wasn't quite mortal. Thanks for being our friend Jeanette... in Christ. Your friends in Battle Creek and Marshall, Michigan. Brother Marc Young

We had a fun experience in Aug '12, boarding a bus and heading down to Laguna Beach for the Pagent of the Masters. Buying flimsy, over priced sweatshirts, that we never worn... And that was after we had been in the NewPort Beach Temple all day, praying for strength.On to your next adventure, my friend. I will miss you.

I don't believe I have ever met someone who was so ready and well prepared to move on to "the next adventure". When Sister Redfield and I met for her temple recommend interview recently, we discussed at length her life, her family, her love of God and her state of preparedness to pass on. She was full of grace and dignity as she explained to me her readiness and anticipation to move forward. She truly was at peace. God bless you dear Sister! Have a good one and enjoy your reunions and what is prepared there for you!

We know not how or where to start - Jeanette, we will miss you always and ever! Your smiling face is a testimony to your brilliant and compassionate life.From the day we first met you to the last day we talked over the phone - you have amazed us with your warmth and calm confidence - even when you were unwell or sad for whatever reason. We remember when you visited us to see our first born, at our house warming, or when you visited just to see us since you were in town! We will always treasure those memories. May you rest in peace and happiness wherever you are. Deep down in our hearts you will always be there in a special place.And sad that will no longer receive the most anticipated Christmas greetings any more...To the family - our heartfelt condolences. To Amber especially - Wish we could be with you and give you a deep hug. Jeanette was so proud of you all - we know you will overcome these tough times - just as your Mom would expect. From now on she will be showering her blessings to you from above!- Jayanta & ChaitaliFremont, CA

During my time of knowing Jeanette in Union Bank, I have always seen her as a very passionate women. A women with great love and ambition for her job and the team that had helped her devotedly . When I heard about her passing, the first thing came to my mind was her smile. Jeanette’s smile a lot and it left a really deep foot print in my mind. Her kindness and thoughtfulness to everyone she knew in the bank have really touch a lot of people.Jeanette, deep in our hearts you'll always stay, loved and remembered every day. A silent thought, a secret tear, keeps your memory ever dear. We will truly Miss You!

Jeanette taught me so much about living life. Her courage, spirit and sense of adventure will be with me always. From our trip driving down into Mexico, to our hot air balloon ride, Jeanette was always ready for an adventure. She appreciated everyone she met and enjoyed where she was - something we can all take with us. She remains the best data modeler that I have ever had the priviliage of working with.I miss her and will always have a place in my heart for her.

After Emma called, this is part of what I wrote in my journal - I will miss her. She helped so much with Aunt Helen. She gave me letters she found from George and some pictures. I had a good time with those and getting to know a little about my father. I gave her buckets of daffodils for Amber's wedding and then bulbs and irises to plant at Ginger's house. I am so glad to have known her. Cancer is such a terrible disease and she held on for so long. Good bye to the flower girl from our wedding. Much love, Jeanne

I remember Jeanette as a beautiful young girl picking my family up at the train (uncle By driving of course), shy, joyfull, with a small tomboys scar across her check. her catch phrase that year, "no I never." I think of her as an accomplished woman, filled with the love of life, of nature, of family. I love her for her special visits to NJ that kept us close. I miss her deeply this spring--she planned to help me plant my gardens--anew tradition with us. Go with God my dear cousin but live in the hearts of us who love you.

What a remarkable woman Jeanette was. She comforted and lifted others when she was suffering even more herself, the focus was never on her. I saw her words of compassion and inspiration and understanding so many times when I knew she herself felt miserable.she loved her family so much, and was loved by all who knew her. It was such a blessing to become reacquainted these past couple of years. What a beautiful and wonderful person, her influence and love will continue as she has touched so many lives.

Jeanette, such a beautiful spirit engulfed you and I am certain now it is even more beautiful. You lived life to the fullest, never complaining, never looking down on anyone and never letting a moment pass you by whether good or bad. I am so blessed to have shared some wonderful childhood memories with you. It was fate we connected again a few years ago and went to our meeting together, you more successful than me! We shared the same great love of the ocean and sandy beaches so I pray you are lounging on one now. You made such wonderful memories for your children and grandchildren and you leave them a shining example of what the defininition of a truly amazing person is. God speed friend, see you on the other side. Much love and gradtitude,Toni Marrone Quintana
