Janeen Hatch Sorensen
Mar. 8, 2018
Janeen 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 Dec. 8, 1979, they were later sealed in the Provo Temple on Aug. 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 preschool 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 13 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.
