Renon Klossner Hulet
On July 4, 2016, Renon Klossner Hulet died from pancreatic cancer. She passed away at home, with family by her side.
In her too short 66 years of life Renon lived more than most. She was a true creative with the ability to make something from nothing, and make it beautiful. As a painter she filled hundreds of canvases with images of landscapes, objects, and the people she loved. As an art teacher she inspired students young and old (including her elderly mother) to express themselves in colors and lines. As a writer she produced books, articles, and scripts. As a mother, wife, sister, friend, and devoted daughter, Ree was our light and our anchor. She healed the crestfallen with her legendary head pets, welcomed all into her home, made delicious meals from seemingly empty cupboards, and took the incessant teasing from her children like a champ. As a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, she served a mission as a young woman in Colombia and Venezuela and later with her husband in Salt Lake City and on Temple Square. She taught countless lessons and otherwise served the Lord she loved in every aspect of her life. Ree never shied away from an adventure, whether skiing black diamonds, paragliding in the Swiss Alps, or road tripping across the country with a friend, 10 kids, and no A/C. Ree delighted in hyperbole; thus no experience was trivial. She was the eternal optimist and had a keen ability to both recognize and create beauty in absolutely everything.
Renon was preceded in death and no doubt welcomed home to the loving arms of her father Ernest Klossner, mother Arda Klossner, and mother-in-law Norma Hulet. She is survived by and will be terribly missed by her husband Craig Hulet, children Cody (Marti) Hulet, Carri Hulet (Justin Larson), Robb (Mychel) Hulet, Julie (Greg) Keller, Geoffrey Hulet (Erin Ferris), 13 adoring grandchildren, brothers John (Wendy) Klossner and Hans (Sophie) KIossner, and her father-in-law, Carlyle Hulet. Renon will be dearly missed by many who called her friend and loved her like family.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 7 at the 10th Ward, 420 South 800 East. A visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6 at the church, and from 9:30 to 10:30 prior to the services. Interment will be at the Memorial Mountain View Cemetery.
