Jennie L. Conder, age 72 of West Valley City, Utah, passed away peacefully Sept. 8, 2019. She was born, April 19, 1947, in Tooele, Utah, to George and Norma Durfee, the youngest of seven children. She married Richard J. Yardley on Aug. 23, 1965, in Tooele, Utah (later divorced). On May 20, 1989, she married Gay A. Conder in Tooele, Utah.
She was a wife, mom, grandmother, sister, and loyal friend. Jennie was a very determined person. She could do anything once she set her mind to it. She never hesitated to tell you what was on her mind, nor drop what she was doing to help a person out. Her straight forward thinking, generosity and stubbornness allowed her to accomplish many things in her life. At the age of 48, she went back to school and received her GED from Salt Lake Community College.
She loved hunting, fishing and camping. She enjoyed crafts, sewing, and crochet. She could work on cars, drive a forklift and even do some carpentry.
When Jennie was younger she was an amazing waitress. She immediately became their friend. She retired from the Supply Division at Tooele Army Depot in March 2012.
She is survived by her daughters, Stefanie (Glen) Rehr, Diane (Steven) Miller, Shaunna Conder; son, Robert Conder; grandchildren, Trevor Wilson, Kellie Wilson, Elizabeth (Ben) Clower, Vicki Searle, Jay Rhodes and Michael Conder; great-grandchildren, Adelynn and Taylee Wilson; sisters, Karen Jensen, Shawnee (Curt) Nash; and sister-in-law, Karlla Hammond.
