Jenefer Rae (Told) Young

March 21, 1957 ~ January 28, 2021 (age 63)



Jenefer slipped peacefully into the next life without any struggle or strain due to what was likely a pulmonary embolism on January 28th, which was her husband Charles Onslow “Bud” Young’s birthday and also their wedding anniversary. We take comfort in picturing Bud coming to escort his bride back to their heavenly home. Jenefer was born on March 21, 1957 to Morris Bill and Moya Lilaine Thomas Told in Provo, Utah. Jenefer loved learning and had a particular passion for music and the arts. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and followed her Savior by serving continuously. She had many friends because she was such a good friend. After raising her three children, she and her first husband, Robert Kent Anderson, parted ways and she pursued teaching.  

When Jenefer married Bud Young, she had met the love of her life. Sadly, after ten years Bud developed cancer and quickly succumbed to the disease. In the remaining years of her life, Jenefer pursued many new outdoor activities, and adored being an active grandmother. Jenefer is survived by her son, Paul Anderson, with his wife, Amanda, and their daughter, Sarah; her daughter, Mindy, with her husband, David Jeppesen, and their children, Eliza, Emma, Peter, and Matthew; her daughter, Bonnie, with her husband, Aaron D’Orlando, and their children, Aeden, Arianna, Elliott, Catarina, and Kayleigh. Also surviving Jenefer are her brothers: Tom Told (with his wife Mollie), Morris Told (with his wife Elaine), and David Told (with his wife Belinda).

She is preceded in death by her mother, Moya Told; her father, Bill Told; her brother, John Told; husband, Bud Young; her granddaughter, Evelyn Grace Jeppesen; and her nephew, Robert Told.
