Salt Lake City, UT

Glenda Charlene Guthrie, born on December 28, 1939, in Mammoth Springs, Arkansas, passed away on February 29, 2024, in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the beloved daughter of Michael and Dora Beeching. Glenda was preceded in death by her husband Albert Eugene Guthrie (Gene), daughter Robin Guthrie-Tetrick, and brother Rod Beeching. Glenda’s journey began in Alamogordo, New Mexico, where she married Gene Guthrie on November 15, 1958. Together, they embarked on a lifetime adventure, raising three daughters while Gene pursued his passion for music and radio broadcasting. After moving to Salt Lake City, Utah, Glenda played an integral role in the family business, supporting Gene in owning and operating Utah’s renowned country radio stations, KRGO AM & FM for nearly three decades. Beyond her personal and professional endeavors, Glenda’s true passions lay in her family and hobbies. She adored reading, particularly indulging in the genre of Romance. She was known for her love of unicorns, but her greatest joy came from spending time with her loved ones. Glenda was a vivacious and fun-loving individual, always spreading joy with her infectious smile and laughter. She had a mischievous side, often teasing her sons-in-law with unique gifts of embarrassing underwear and showering her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with love and affection. Like Peter Pan, Glenda remained true to staying young at heart, even at 84 years of age. Glenda’s interests included travel, coffee, and wine, but her greatest pleasure was conversing with her sisters and family members over the phone if she could not visit in person. She cherished these connections dearly. Glenda is survived by her daughters Kathy and Mona, sisters Jay and Karen, seven grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren. Her legacy of love, laughter, and unwavering devotion to her family will forever be remembered and cherished by those who knew her. In honor of Glenda’s memory, the family requests that instead of flowers or donations, that her friends and family grab a coffee or a glass of wine and take a moment regularly to celebrate their families, as Glenda did with such joy and enthusiasm. The family also extends their heartfelt gratitude to the hospital staff, doctors, and nurses of the University of Utah critical Neuro care ward for their exceptional care and compassion during Glenda’s final days. Glenda Guthrie’s presence will be deeply missed, but her spirit and love will continue to live on in the hearts of all who were touched by her warmth and kindness. May she rest in peace, reunited with Gene. A visitation will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2024 from 6-8 PM at the Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 50 W Main, Grantsville, Utah 84029

Preben Jensen

Dec 09, 1943 - Feb 27, 2024

location-icon

Salt Lake City, UT

Preben, or Ben as known to family and friends, passed away peacefully surrounded by a loving family on Tuesday, February 27th. Born to Wita and Henning Jensen in Copenhagen, Denmark, Ben had in his recollection a magical childhood. At the age of sixteen Ben immigrated with his parents and two younger brothers to the United States for better opportunity though the beauty of his life in Denmark never left him. Stories of candlelit Christmas trees, groups of boys playing soccer late into the evening, and family basking in the sun on the patio to wind down the day in games and conversation seemed to pull his heart back to center. Ever still a Dane, he kept the nuance of Danish living through strictly followed holiday traditions, family dinners on the patio and crazy sideline antics at the soccer field. Lest you forget where his heart lay he used the Danish flag as a sign off in his texts. During his high school years at East and Highland High School, Ben worked to help support his family. Working after school at TruTech labs he had already started to make a name for himself in the dental industry. Guided by his father and brother's encouragement, Ben eventually embarked on an entrepreneurial journey, founding his own dental lab and through long hours and hard work established a thriving business. This accomplishment enabled him to retire early, affording him the invaluable gift of time to devote to another passion—creating family memories through the small, meaningful moments of everyday life. He met Karen, his California "looker" and sweetheart, when she was attending BYU. They had three girls, Kerri, Jody, and Lisa whom he loved dearly. Always the doting father he made it to all the soccer games, recitals and school programs no matter the extra work that might mean for him the next day. Likewise, Ben was later well suited for the privileged role of Grandpa. Each grandkid had an inside joke and the understanding that he was, as he always said, their number one fan. His love for his family was his biggest joy and greatest accomplishment. Ben was a voracious reader, history buff, and lifelong learner. He’d happily chat about any topic ranging from politics to history to the World Cup to college sports. Just pull up a chair on the patio, enjoy a cup of coffee and give him a good conversation and he’d be in heaven.Ben will be missed dearly by family and friends. He is survived by his wife Karen, brothers Flemming Jensen and Vagn Jensen. Daughters and sons in law, Kerri and Rodney Miller, Jody and Christian Matsumori, Lisa and Jens Pawelke. And grandchildren (by age), Taylor Glover, Sage Weber, Josh Miller, Javin Matsumori, Malia Matsumori, Marcus Pawelke, Austin Pawelke, Ezra Matsumori and Anna Pawelke. The family welcomes you to a daytime viewing THURSDAY MARCH 7th from 12:00 to 1:00 followed by a Celebration of Life, open house format, from 1:00-3:00 with a short program starting at 1:30. Please come as you are and just as Ben would have done, pull up a chair, enjoy a cup and a snack while you share your favorite memories of Ben with a fellow friend. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Refugee Soccer as it fits all of Ben’s loves so well.

Eddy Thatcher

Feb 01, 1962 - Feb 27, 2024

location-icon

Salt Lake City, UT

Eddy came into the world like a rocket as the first son and fifth child of Roy Edwin and Ann Louise Clark Thatcher on February 1, 1962, and departed it suddenly when his heart stopped on February 27, 2024. Ed was a proud resident of the Rose Park neighborhood in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended Rose Park Elementary, Northwest Intermediate, and West High School. Ed had a lifelong love of fast cars, loud music, good friends, and the Raiders. During his youth he was the life of the party and lived life fast and hard. On more than one occasion, borrowing the cars of his siblings and parents without asking permission. He turned his passion for hard living around in 1989, devoted countless hours helping others in recovery, and spent many years volunteering with recovering addicts at the Utah State Prison and the Salt Lake County Jail. He was a person of many interests. He was never afraid to try new things, including taking tap lessons. He worked for many years at General Office Supply, before opening his own carpet cleaning company. Ed was always interested in family history and genetics. Once retired, he took on the role of family archivist and would send the family updates about the interesting historical figures in our ancestry. Ed met the love of his life Linda Lemoine and her son Bryan in 1994. Ed and Bryan quickly formed a strong bond and were thick as thieves. They spent every April Fool’s Day conspiring and pulling pranks on Linda (and then each of them calling her to tell her what the other had in store for her). Ed took on the role of loving father to Bryan and never looked back. He was fiercely proud of Bryan, supported him unconditionally and loved him deeply. His greatest joy in life was being a grandpa, doting on and adoring his grandsons. He looked forward to spending time with them whenever he could, travelling to wherever Bryan happened to be living with the Navy whenever possible. Ed made sure to be present for his grandkids when they were born, at all the big moments, and loved driving them around when they were babies to get them to sleep. Above all else, Ed cared deeply for his family. His siblings were always his best friends, so much so that he purchased the house next to his sister to be close to her. He was a devoted uncle to his nieces and nephews and formed close relationships with them. He loved his cousins and maintained friendships with many of them throughout his life. He loved animals, but most especially his cat, Cati. Ed was opinionated, stubborn, a passionate democrat, and always looked out for the underdog. Under the hard exterior shell, he was one of the most caring and compassionate people you would ever have the honor of meeting. His intelligence and thoughtfulness were second to none. Ed is survived by his loving wife Linda Thatcher, his son Bryan Lemoine, grandsons Anthony and Aden, sisters Lou ann (Scott) Hill and Lynn (Kevin) Johnson, brother Lee (Julie) Thatcher, 9 nieces and nephews, many cousins, friends, and his cat. He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Lila and Louise, beloved brother-in-law Frank and nephew Roy. A memorial visitation service will be held in his honor on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, from 6-8 PM at the City View Mortuary, 1001 E 11 Avenue, Salt Lake City, Utah 84103. All who knew and loved him are welcome.

Jarett Edward White

Aug 19, 1971 - Feb 25, 2024

Salt Lake City, UT

Jarett Edward White, born on August 19, 1971, in Modesto, California, passed away after a 3-year cancer battle on February, 25, 2024. Jarett was the oldest of Bonnie and Joel White’s six children: Kris, David, Danny, Katelynn, and Karleigh. In 1995 Jarett married his partner-in-crime, Amy Harding, and together they had two amazing children to complete their family. Megan was born in 1996 and Ethan in 2000. From the time he first held Megan and Ethan, you just knew Jarett was meant to be a dad. He cheered them on, pushed them to always give their best and work hard, laughed, hiked, snowboarded, camped and fished with them to instill an appreciation of the outdoors. Jarett was a quiet, focused, driven man who lived life with purpose and direction. He had a subtle sense of humor and if you didn’t pay attention, you could miss a well-directed zinger. He loved music and shared that passion with his children and his brother Kris. Jarett listened to a wide range of music, from the Beatles to Minor Threat and Social Distortion. He loved listening to Megan play piano and Ethan strumming his guitar. Ethan and Jarett often discussed bands and name that tune or artist. On July 8, 2023 Jarett walked his daughter Megan down the aisle. When Megan married her soul mate Nate Kuechenmeister on the shores of Lake Bemidji in Minnesota, Jarett felt blessed to take part in the new journey they were beginning. He was also excited for Megan to begin her new career in nursing. Jarett loved Utah. The mountains called to him and soothed his soul. The red rocks of southern Utah spurned his sense of adventure and when he bought his dream Jeep Wrangler, he had the opportunity to take it off road, just like he had dreamt. In August he spent 6 weeks boondocking on BLM land up the Mirror Lake Highway. He told his mother; in the mountains he didn’t have cancer. He could forget about the appointments, scans, and loneliness cancer creates. He was so excited to spend time with Ethan, fishing and camping. Needless to say, there was quite a competition going for biggest trout. For those who knew Jarett, family and friends alike, Amy, Megan and Ethan ask that you fondly remember his quiet demeanor, his ability to laugh loudly, his sharp sense of humor, his drive for excellence, his strength of character, and his commitment to the people he loved and respected. Jarett would tell you all to take a walk along a mountain trail, look up and admire the stars, help a person in need, and most importantly, tell the people in your life that you love them. Celebrating Jarett’s life, his family will be receiving friends on Wednesday March 6th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. 10600 S. Sandy, UT. Visitation will continue one hour prior to the service held on March 7, 2024 at 2:00 pm in the Larkin Sunset Chapel. To virtually attend services through zoom, please click on the "Watch Services" button above. At Christmas this year Jarett’s wife, Amy, gave him a gift that can be shared by all who knew and loved him. If you look up at the night sky, towards the Big Dipper, there is a star registered for Jarett with the coordinates 12 15 47.0 +57 1 57 . 36. JEAM 1995 was registered on December 24, 2023 with the International Space Registry. It shines radiantly, almost as brilliantly as Jarett’s life.
