July 13, 1934 — March 13, 2022

Born on July 13, 1934, to Waldemar Jensen and Florence Holdaway, JoAnn was the youngest of 14 children. Born and raised in Lehi, Utah, JoAnn grew up on a farm, working hard caring for animals, gardening and tending to the yard – skills she continued to develop and hone throughout. of his life.

Jo has always had a great imagination and loved pretend play. Since then, she has been creating costumes and dressing. She enjoyed plays, theatrical performances, and was especially fond of comedy vaudeville shows. She was wonderful in storytelling and pantomime. She loved to entertain whether it was singing, dancing, or cheerleading; something she never surpassed. As a young girl, she loved school and enjoyed socializing. She liked it so much that she came back later to teach.

JoAnn was a fantastic friend. She was caring and kind and worked hard to maintain her many friendships; some she had since she was four.

In 1950, she married her high school sweetheart, Keith Colledge. Together they welcomed sons, Craig and Kim. She was tragically widowed in August 1953.

She met her new love, Phil Bailey, on a Labor Day blind date in 1954. They were married 60 days later. They welcomed three new children, Kirt, Vint and Nannette. They raised their family in Roy where it resided for 60 years.

Phil and Jo were hard workers. They helped each other change and improve their home inside and out. JoAnn also held jobs at Baker’s Shoes, Wolfe’s Sporting Goods and Kanesville Elementary where she excelled and was loved.

She also liked to relax and have fun. Family time was spent at sporting events, camping, hunting, skiing, and boating. Always up for adventure, Phil and Jo have traveled the world together. They saw great sites, made wonderful memories and made many friends along the way.

Always family-focused, JoAnn was an amazing mom and grandmother. She always had a fun activity, a song to sing, a dance to learn, or a flower to water. She was the best hostess at our annual Christmas party. She remembered each birthday with a handwritten card in the mail.

She had the kindest, most vibrant and generous soul. She never said anything bad to anyone.

Having lived a life full of kindness and ready to return home, JoAnn passed away on March 13, 2022.

JoAnn leaves behind a strong legacy of those she will miss deeply. Children, Craig (Debbie), Kim (Janet), Kirt (Tracie), Vint and Nannette (Curtis); 20 grandchildren, 55 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
