Mar. 9, 1978 ~ Feb. 15, 2014
Our sweet and compassionate daughter, sister and friend passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on February 15th. Jenny's journey has included many life-long health challenges which she faced with insurmountable strength and exceptional courage. It gives great comfort to know she is now healthy and strong and in His loving arms again.
Jenny was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, daughter of Michael Callahan and Connie Webb.
Jenny was an academic who enjoyed cooking and baking, the outdoors, fly fishing, hiking and sunsets at the family cabin.
Jenny had a benevolent, giving heart and was a loyal friend to all. Her contagious smile would fill any room with joy. She would often say how lucky she was to have such loving and supportive family and friends.
Preceeded in death by her grandfather, Red Mayne and uncle Ed Mayne. Survived by Ruth Mayne (grandmother), Connie (Craig) Webb, Michael Callahan and siblings, Shauna Callahan, Michael (Tonya) Callahan, Shannon (Matt) Sager, Shane (Katrina) Callahan, Michelle (Daniel) Boone, Natalie (Mark) Holley, and many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins, especially Anthony, Shireen and Jamie.
A celebration of life will be held in her honor on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 from 6-6:30 p.m. with visitation to follow until 8:00 p.m. at Valley View Memorial, 4335 W 4100 S, West Valley Ctiy, Utah.
The family wishes to thank the ICU staff at St. Marks Hospital and Salt Lake Regional Medical Center for their kind and gentle care and would also like to express their deep appreciation for Dr. Belnap and Cara for their devotion and loving care.
