(Hancock) Offret passed away peacefully at home on August
27, 2013, with loved ones by her side. She was born on November
4, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Keith and LaRita Hancock.
Jeanie grew up in Salt Lake City and Bountiful, Utah. She
married her sweetheart, John Offret, on Valentine's Day,
February 14, 1980. They have 2 children, Jamie and Jason.
John and Jeanie lived in Provo Canyon prior to residing
in American Fork for the past 20 years.
Jeanie showed tremendous strength and courage as she suffered
with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). To say she endured to the
end would describe her battle very well. Jeanie's smile
and sense of humor could light up the room. If you knew
her, you loved her! She adored her grandchildren and they
loved her. Mason loved to hop on her lap and take a ride
on grandma's electric wheelchair. Jeanie loved her kitties
Squeek and Soot, and she referred to them as her babies.
Her house was extremely organized and clean (she had every
cool gadget known) and internet shopping will take a dive
with her passing.
Jeanie is survived by loving husband John (American Fork);
children Jamie (Orem), Jason (Robyn) (Cedar Hills) and grandchildren
(Cameron, Halle, and Mason); mother LaRita Hancock (Bountiful);
sister Judy Williams (Mark) (West Jordan), brothers Eldon
(Vicki) Hancock (Casa Grande, AZ), Dave Hancock (Bluffdale),
Gene Hancock (Bountiful), sister in law Bonnie Bale (Dennis)
(Payson), and brother in law Jim Offret (Sandy) (Orem).
Jeanie is preceded in death by infant son Christopher, father
Keith Hancock, sister Linda Robbins, and brothers Steve
and Vaughn Hancock; mother in law Verna Offret and father
in law Henry Offret.
We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Hospice, and
neighbors Rakell and Dave Farre and Nancy and Coy Ivie for
their friendship and loving care.
A celebration of her life will be held with immediate
family at a later date as per Jeanie's wishes.
