Sweet and feisty Jennie Mae “Jan” Rasmussen Wentz, 88, of Orem, Utah died in the early morning hours of June 21, 2022 after putting up a prolonged fight against the ravages of age.

She married Donald Ervin Wentz Jr in 1958 and was married almost 60 years before his passing. She was the proud mother to Tony Walter Wentz, Bradley Donald Wentz, James Franklin Wentz and Julie Ann Wentz Garfield.
