Jenny Wiscomb Obituary
Jenny Anne Martinson Wiscomb
1960 ~ 2011
Jenny Anne Martinson Wiscomb, the heart of our family, our loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, passed away on November 30, 2011, after an extraordinary fight with a rare cancer. Jenny was loved by everyone who knew her. During her too-short life, she made an enormous impact on everyone she met and made a difference everywhere she went.
Jenny came into the world on May 29, 1960. She was adored by her Mom and Dad and two brothers. From the time she was a child her sparkling eyes and infectious smile and laugh brought fun and enjoyment everywhere she went up to her last days. She graduated with a BA degree from the University of Utah and started worked for the March of Dimes as the director of special events were she used her talents to coordinate large events for a cause she believed in. She then married the love of her life and started her family, which gave her the most joy. She quit the March of Dimes to raise her children and had various part-time jobs. Her favorite was being the librarian at Southland Elementary where she loved reading to the children and brought extra life to the books with her animated reading abilities.
Jenny was blessed with many talents, including a rich alto voice, which she shared in several choirs, small ensembles, and with her daughter and family. She found great joy in serving the young women and primary age children in a variety of church callings, and was a counselor in the Stake Young Women's presidency at the time of her death. Jenny loved doing crafts, and shared her talents with others. She sewed, quilted and scrapbooked, but the thing she loved most was sharing time with her husband Tom and being a mother to her two children, Glen and Emily. They loved being together as a family and enjoyed many family vacations including trips to Disneyland and Island Park, ID.
Jenny left a legacy for her family and friends of love, testimony, and service to others. The world was a better place with Jenny in it. Jenny is survived by her husband, Thomas G. Wiscomb, her children, Glen and Emily, her father, Gene Martinson, her two brothers, Gary (Karen) and Curt, and her extended family, including many nieces and nephews. Her mother, Patricia Ellerman Martinson, preceded her in death in 2008.
A viewing will be held on Sunday, December 4, 2011 from 6-8 p.m. at the Riverton Utah Central Stake Center, 12852 So. 3200 W. Funeral services will be held at the same location on Monday, December 5, at 11:00 a.m. Friends may visit from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Interment will be at the Riverton City Cemetery. www.broomheadfuneralhome.com
