SorensenJaneenCropJaneen Hatch Sorensen passed away at her home on March 4, 2018 after a weekend enjoying home and family, watching home movies, singing favorite songs, laughing and sharing fun memories and stories.
Janeen was born on June 22, 1961 to Newell and Mary Ann Hatch in Salina, Utah. She married Lee R. Sorensen on December 8, 1979, they were later sealed in the Provo Temple on August 7, 1982. Janeen’s life was filled with love, laughter and adventure. She had an impact on many people throughout her life. She was a Pre-School Teacher, an Elementary TA, a teller at Cache Valley Bank and held many positions working with the youth in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her smile, her songs and her ability to make everyone feel welcome and included will be greatly missed. Janeen’s greatest happiness and success came from her family: her husband, her six boys, her thirteen grandchildren, her siblings and her parents. Life was never dull, there was always a broken bone, a bump, a bruise, a laceration or stitches to be dealt with. An adventure or treasure hunt was always in the works and the grandkids loved to go play with Grandma Janeen. She loved spending time in the mountains, working on her beautiful yard, scrapbooking, sewing and being involved in her community. Her legacy will live on through those she influenced, whether it be through the sarcasm, a sense of fun, nuggets of wisdom or service. Janeen taught through example and has instilled a love of life and a sense of community and family with her children. Even though she was not blessed with daughters her daughters-in-law felt as if they were her own. She always had time to listen, to understand, to lend a hand and to make any occasion special.
Janeen was preceded in death by her father, Newell Hatch, her grandson Monroe Sorensen and her nephew Cole Lovell. She is survived by her husband Lee R. Sorensen, her mother Mary Ann Hatch, her siblings Shelley Carlson, Cami Lovell and John Hatch, her children Jacob (Charleen), Clinton (Karen), Garrett (Shandi), Morgan (Janelle), Kyle (Kayla), Tanner and her 12 grandchildren. She also leaves behind many nieces, nephews and friends.
Funeral services will be held Friday, March 9, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at the Mt. Pleasant North Stake Center located at (461 N 300 W). A viewing will be held at the church on Thursday, March 8, 2018 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Interment in the Fairview City Cemetery.

    Dear Sorensen & Hatch Family, We are so sorry for your loss. We are praying you will be comforted at this difficult time. Janeen has always been full of joy and happiness. I remember her fun attitude and love for life when she was a teenager. She always was aware of others and worked to include everyone. She had a way of making you feel loved and cared about. I can just imagine how much her boys loved having her as their mother. She lived an amazing life and everyone who knew her will miss her dearly.

    This quote has brought much comfort to me, so I wanted to share it with you at this SAD TIME in your lives. The President Joseph F. Smith taught us this: “We are closely connected to our loved ones who have preceded us into the spirit world. We cannot forget them; we do not cease to love them; we always hold them in our hearts, in memory, and thus we are associated and united to them by ties that we cannot break…they know us better than we know them. We live in their presence, they see us, and they are concerned for our welfare, and they love us now more than ever. For now they see the dangers that beset us. Their love for us and their desire for our well being must be greater than that which we feel for ourselves.” May you be blessed and comforted with peace and happy memories.

  8. Ryan & Hillary Smith family says:

    Our family had the privilege of knowing Janeen and her wonderful family for only a short time, but we will be forever grateful for that time that we did have. Janeen is such a loving and kind person and left such an indelible impression on our whole family that we will always remember her for her personality and open love for everyone. Lee R and his boys are a living example of who she is and everything she said and did for others. We love you Sorenson family!

    I am so sorry for your loss of such a beautiful person. May the many happy memories you shared together with Janeen bring you some comfort in the days ahead. And may you find hope in God’s promise to soon undo ‘all tears, mourning, pain and even death’ itself (Rev. 21:4). Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
