Click HERE to view Funeral Services for Janell Rimington\r\n\r\nJanell Marian Barker Rimington, devoted wife, mother, and sister, peacefully returned to her loving Heavenly Father on August 5, 2021 at the age of 67.\r\n\r\nJanell was born on March 28, 1954 to Eugene (Gene) and Marian Barker and was raised in American Fork, Utah. She graduated with honors from American Fork High School in 1972 where she enjoyed drama starring in I Remember Mama and playing the flute in the marching band. She went on to higher education at Brigham Young University where she met the love of her life, Kenneth (Ken) Gerald Rimington. They were married on August 23, 1973 in the Salt Lake Temple.\r\n\r\nThroughout her life Janell was an avid reader and as a child would hide behind the sofa to sneak more reading time. Her literary interests were varied and she derived much pleasure from instilling a love of reading in her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed watching Star Trek, making amazing art with counted cross-stitch, decorating beautiful cakes for special occasions such as birthdays and weddings, sewing, quilting, crocheting, tole painting, and spending quality time with her sisters, children, and grandchildren.\r\n\r\nJanell was dedicated to her family and chose to focus her attention on raising her children and being an involved grandmother. She shared her hobbies with her children and grandchildren and helped them pursue hobbies of their own. She enjoyed hosting family gatherings and always had fun activities to do with her grandchildren. Her sisters describe her as being the life of the party and she loved to make them laugh.\r\n\r\nJanell and Ken had a loving and gentle relationship. Together they raised their children to value hard work, self-reliance, integrity, and personal relationships with their Heavenly Father. She loved attending and working in the Temple, researching family history, and spent countless hours documenting the amazing stories of her parents, grandparents, and ancestors.\r\n\r\nJanell received the devastating diagnosis of cancer in March 2020 and fought with grace and dignity for 17 months. Throughout her journey she was strengthened by her faith and family and at many times acknowledged the peace she received from the Spirit of the Lord. A special heartfelt thanks to the Encompass Hospice staff and the doctors and staff at Huntsman Cancer Institute, as well as the many family and friends who served her so lovingly throughout her ordeal.\r\n\r\nJanell is survived by her loving husband, seven children, five in-laws, 17 grandchildren, and five sisters and their families.\r\n \r\nFuneral services for Janell will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel at 685 Davis St, Perry, Utah.
