Jeannette Kathron Yount, 73, Spanish Fork, passed away peacefully in her sleep and returned home to our Heavenly Father on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013.
She was born July 25, 1939 to George F and Stella Kate Olsen Lindsay in Placerville, Calif. Jeannette attended El Camino High School and the College of Eastern Utah for business management. Jeannette worked as a dispatcher for Sammon's Trucking, and then as assistant curator at the College of Eastern Utah Prehistoric Museum.
She married her love, Harold, on Dec, 14, 1961 in Sacramento, Calif. Their marriage was solemnized in The Oakland Temple on Sept. 2, 1965. They loved each other dearly, were each others best friend and recently celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary together. Their love survived and thrived even amid the sorrow of losing one of their children. Through the years, she put the gospel of Jesus Christ into practice by serving as called, mainly teaching Gospel Doctrine. She lived her testimony.
