Jenai Christensen Axelson (89-90) Passed Away October 18 15 Jan 2013
Jenai Christensen Axelson, beloved wife and mother of five daughters passed away on October 18, 2012 at the age of 44 after succumbing to inflammatory breast cancer. Jenai was born on December 20, 1967 in Renton, Washington to parents Lauritz Lloyd Christensen and Jean Miskin Christensen. She lived most of her childhood in Rigby, Idaho. As the oldest of 13 children, she often acted as a second mother to her siblings as she provided care for them. She was home schooled by her mother. She graduated from Ricks College with an Associate Degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology in 1989 and from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1993. From 1989-90, Jenai served a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Leeds, England. She was sealed to her eternal companion Mark Allen Axelson in the Idaho Falls Temple on July 29, 1995. Together, they have reared five daughters while residing in Provo, Sandy, and Riverton, UT, Lake Mathews, CA, Chicago, IL, Mira Loma, CA, and Des Plaines, IL, and settled at last in their “dream town” Cedar City, UT. Jenai had the gift of discerning between truth and error and between right and wrong. She was totally dedicated to the spiritual and intellectual welfare of her five daughters and taught them at home. She always expected them to act according to the highest standards. These daughters with their rock solid understanding of the gospel, their well trained minds and their blossoming talents are part of Jenai’s legacy that will never be forgotten. Jenai gained much comfort from listening to popular L.D.S. music such as that of Michael McLain. She also enjoyed listening to Western music and Roger Whittaker. She was immensely talented with American Sign Language and used her talent to volunteer on the staff of Camp Liahona for deaf youth and to interpret for the deaf in church meetings, even if she had to attend church twice on Sunday. She was an avid reader and enjoyed Western authors such as Louis L’Amour or religious or parenting books. She organized scrapbooks and videos of her life and the lives of her family members. She attended church and the temple faithfully and was also a diligent visiting teacher. Her testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ was felt by all who knew her. After her cancer diagnosis in 2009, she spent the next three years going forward with unmitigated faith and courage and sharing her outlook about life’s eternal nature with all while accumulating 10,400 visits to her blog. She even organized her own “Celebration of Life” which was held in lieu of a funeral 20 days prior to her passing! Her recurrent theme was, “It’s All Good.” Jenai, we think you are “All Good”. We don’t know what exactly we will do without you and look forward to the day when we can rejoice with you together in the Kingdom of Our Father. God Be With You Till We Meet Again. Jenai is survived by her husband Mark Axelson and her daughters Liahona Axelson, Saige Axelson, Eve (Briezy) Axelson, Jinger Axelson and Marnae Axelson, by her brothers and sisters, Duane Christensen, Dallas Christensen, Shleen Christensen Monson, Valden Christensen, Forrest Christensen, Laurissa Christensen Rasmussen, Lezhai Christensen Gulbransen, Flint Christensen, Adam Christensen, Grant Hunsaker, her stepfather Jessie Gifford, her step brothers and sisters, Shaun Gifford, Corey Gifford, Tammy Gifford Ault, Lori Gifford Lundgren, Richard Gifford, Tom Gifford, and Jeff Gifford, Gerald Hunsaker, Greg Hunsaker, Michael Hunsaker, and Clifford Hunsaker. Jenai was preceded in death by her father Lauritz Christensen, mother Jean Miskin Christensen, brothers Logan Christensen, Stewart (K’del) Christensen, stepfather Orland Hunsaker, grandfather Guy Miskin and grandmother Afton Miskin. A graveside service was held at the Cedar City Cemetery on Monday, October 22 at 2.p.m.
