Judy Karen Adams Denney

March 25, 1942 – Sept. 18, 2018

Judy Karen Adams Denney, 76, passed away Sept. 18, 2018. She was born March 25, 1942, in San Francisco, California.

Judy spent most of her early years in Houston, Texas. She was baptized in her teens as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She left home at 18 to attend Brigham Young University where she met the love of her life.

David and Judy were married May 25, 1962, in the Idaho Falls temple. They lived in Preston, Idaho; Logan, Utah; Orem, Utah; and finally St. George, Utah, where they enjoyed their retirement together.

She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved nothing more than when her kids came home. She looked forward to seeing her grandkids and taking them to do things, especially shopping. She loved baking cookies and brownies with them and it became their tradition. She passed on her love of baking to her grandkids and they always knew they were her priority.

Judy worked for Intermountain Healthcare for many years and retired from Dixie Regional Medical Center. She enjoyed the many friends she met while working there.

She is survived by her husband David Denney (St George, Utah); children Darren (Nichola) Denney (Durango, Colorado), Deena Wolfley (Logan, Utah), Jaime (Robert) Davis (Gardner, Kansas);  six grandkids Kyle Odin (Hannah), Cody and Jake Davis, Carter and Chloe Wolfley, and Hayden Hone; and one great-grandchild, Oakley Nicholls.

She was preceded in death by her daughter Dayna Kimball and grandson Derk Kimball. We are comforted knowing she is finally with her daughter that she missed very much since her death in 2012.

A special thanks to mom’s nurses Makenna Blevins and Yvonne Charpentier from Suntree Hospice and the many CNAs who took such great care of her. We truly appreciate all the compassion you have shown to our family.
