Jeanne Dehlin, passed away Jan 20, 2022 after resiliently battling health complications in recent years. “Geeg'' was born on December 19, 1946 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Clayton and Lucille Anderson. The first of three children, she graduated from Bingham High School where she excelled as a student, performer, dancer and cheerleader. While in high school she met her lifelong best friend and sweetheart Pat Dehlin. Pat and Jeanne were married in the Salt Lake Temple on August 6, 1965. These two were destined to be together and enjoyed a lifetime full of incredible experiences. In 1976 Pat and Jeanne moved to Glenmoor Village in South Jordan where they raised their family, became an integral part of the community, and lived the rest of their lives. Here the Dehlin family embraced the game of golf where all four kids competed as juniors, received scholarships at the collegiate level and two are now PGA professionals. Their legacy lives on as their youngest daughter, Darci, is the Head Professional at Glenmoor Golf Club.\n\nJeanne’s passion for dance and cheerleading didn’t end in high school. Soon after she was married she began to teach dance and drill out of her home studio. The Jeannettes Dance and Drill studio became the talk of the town in the late 70s and she took great pride in helping her young students find confidence in themselves. Later on she started a new dance group called the Dancematics. She loved taking her groups to be showcased in parades, sporting events and dance competitions. Even in her later years she continuously coached her grandchildren to sharpen up their dance moves - 5, 6, 7, 8… and 1, 2, 3, 4… If you needed to put together a neighborhood gathering, pageant, talent show, festival, spook-alley, or block party Jeanne was the first one called. \n\nJeanne had a deep love for music, because of its ability to uplift, inspire and provide hope. This drove her to share her love of the gospel of Jesus Christ by writing and publishing a songbook titled, “Family Team Spirit, Get Fit for Eternity.” She shared her passion of family togetherness and Christlike love for others with these simple, but powerful songs. Geeg loved to serve and enjoyed her numerous callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Service in the primary was what she enjoyed most along with other callings serving the youth. One of Jeanne’s lifelong service endeavors was as a board member for the Primary Children’s Festival of Trees, where she volunteered for over 25 years. She loved to give and displayed the spirit of Christmas all year long. She also enjoyed her time of service on the International Women’s Celebration committee as she assisted to bring women together from all over the world to SLC to share ideas and find strength.\n\nJeanne loved her dear husband Pat and children more than anything and would go to great lengths to love, inspire and motivate all of them to be their best. She was the ultimate “cheerleader” who made everyone feel like no mountain was too tall to climb. Nothing made her more proud than watching and supporting her children in their various sports and activities. Long family road trips, spending time at the golf course, attending sporting events and backyard barbecues were just some of the things she enjoyed most. Geeg was quite the sports fanatic who rarely missed a Utah Jazz game or Utah Utes football game. Even when her favorite teams lost she would always maintain optimism and find the silver lining. Jeanne loved to be with her family more than anything and was heartbroken to lose her eternal companion in May of 2012. Our dear mom, grandma, sister and friend will surely be missed, but we rejoice in knowing that she is reunited again with the love of her life. May God be with you until we meet again. In the meantime, we will work to share your legacy of cheering others on as you did your entire life. Thank you Mom for everything! We will never stop loving you! \n\nSurvived by her children Devin Dehlin (Joanne), Danna Miller (Mark), Dustin Dehlin (Kristy), Darci Olsen (Joey), 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild; sibling Brian Anderson. Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents Clayton and Lucille Anderson, sibling Brent Anderson and her devoted husband James Patrick Dehlin.\n\nFuneral services will be held Saturday, Jan 29, 2022at the Jenkins-Soffe Funeral Home, 1007 W.
