Our beautiful mother, Jeneil Badham Deuel, rejoined the love of her life December 6, 2023. She was born in Payson, Utah June 16, 1942 to Earl Don and Hazel Crump Badham. After graduating from Payson High School she married John Boyd Deuel and raised 2 boys in their home in Santaquin. Jeneil had many roles through the years. Aside from being a mother and wife she operated a salon, worked in the medical field, worked at Young Living Farms and Santaquin seniors. She was very passionate about the American Legion and the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, donating countless hours. She was recognized by Santaquin City and honored for her service and positive role in the local community.
As a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jeneil loved singing in the choir and had a beautiful singing voice. The best way to describe Jeneil is “Loving”. She was always there with open arms to comfort you and let you know that you are loved. She loved her grandchildren and always had a treat for them, even if she had to sneak them a sugar cube. Jeneil loved her family more than anything and always made it a point to call each and every one of them to sing happy birthday.
She is survived by her 2 sons Guyle (Sallie) and Shannon (Alyson), along with many bonus children (Jen, Dean, Andrew and many more). She is also survived by 8 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, 2 sisters Geri (Ron) Jensen and Lynnie (Vic) Ballard plus many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, 1 brother, Dick Badham, and 2 sisters, Sue Robinson and Carolyn Reed.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday, December 13, 2023 at 11:00 am at the Santaquin North Stake Center, 545 North 200 East. A viewing will be held at the church Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 10:45 am prior to the services. Interment will be in the Santaquin City Cemetery.
The family would like to give special thanks to the staff at Orchard View Assisted Living and especially Kelley for all of your love and support through this difficult time.
