Jeanette LaRue Kinder, age 81 of Santaquin Utah, passed away Sunday October 25, 2020 surrounded by family. She was born March 26, 1939 to Edgar and Milda Holliman in the small town of Kenilworth, Utah.
She spent her youth growing up in a small town making memories with her family. When Edgar and Milda divorced, Jeanette and her family moved to Orem where Milda married Charles Dowler in 1945. Jeanette had a happy childhood and loved going to girls camp in Provo canyon. Unlucky in love twice before Jeanette married her last love in her life, Dennis Kinder, on May 14, 1968 and again on April 2, 1976. Jeanette had 13 children, 11 of them in natural birth.
She received her temple endowment on June 25, 2010 at the Jordan River Utah Temple. She liked to visit old ghost towns and sit down with a good book. She made the best homemade bread and apple pie ever. Thanksgiving was an extra special time because we got mom’s pumpkin pie. One of her favorite things to do was sit with her friends and family and talk. She was good to sit, drink coffee and talk for hours.
Jeanette was loved by everyone who ever met her. She will be missed greatly. Till we meet again mom, we love you!
