On Dec. 29, 2020, Janene Katherine Tefft, loving mother and grandmother, died in Gilbert, Ariz., at the age of 65.

Janene was a kind and caring spirit who loved bird watching and nature, cooking for others and being with her grandchildren. She was an avid armchair traveler who also enjoyed British dramas and mysteries. A woman of many talents, she would always surprise you with an interesting fact or tidbit of knowledge gathered from her avid reading and love of PBS.

Janene was born Oct. 14, 1955, in Grangeville, Idaho.

She is preceded by her parents, Ruthie May Ulrigg and Joseph P. Tefft. She is survived by her brothers Joel and Allen Tefft, the love of her life, Walter Hendricks, her daughters Kathryn and Nichole Hendricks, and her grandchildren Corbin Sims and Alexis and Isabelle Maynes. She will be fondly remembered by her remaining loved ones and friends.

Due to COVID-19 there will not be any services. A celebration of life will be held later.
