Jenny Alece Perkins was born on February 6, 1977 in Provo Utah to Ned and Janet Perkins. She was their only daughter but had three brothers who lived under her direction their entire lives. From the first moment she let them know that she was in charge in her family.
She had a strong personality but it developed into an asset through her life. She was a champion of the underdog, always caring for someone who needed help, human or animal. Many strangers spent a night in our home as she helped them. Dogs and cats were watched over by her until she could find an owner. She was eager to try new skills and tried on many hats; sports, singing, cooking. She later became an accomplished chef developing her own recipes. Later she started projects with her dad to improve our home. Her skills carried over into the yard, creating beautiful flower beds and prolific gardens. Her greatest love were her animals-she raised many Old English Bulldogs, and Schnauzer puppies. Recently she helped a mother cat and her babies to the dismay of the cats who didn’t appreciate the dogs. She already had plans for the next pet.
Jenny had friends of all ages and if you were her friend it was for life. Two of her closest friendships were with Riley and Olivia-her nephew & niece. She had holiday activities that always developed around how they could participate.
Jenny practiced being a good member of her church and had a strong testimony. During family scripture study she was the reader, and brought up questions for us to look up the answer for the next evening. She worked daily to draw closer to God. She looked forward to going through the Temple, & was preparing herself for those blessings.
Jenny has struggled for the past few years with congestive heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and lymphedema. She has fought a long battle the last couple of months and is now at peace.
We are grateful for the many nurses, doctors, techs, & social workers who worked tirelessly to care for her needs.
Jenny is survived by her parents, her brothers, Reed (Heather) Perkins, Ryan (Natalie) Perkins, Brant Perkins, her nephew, Riley and niece Olivia.
