January 8, 1936 — January 29, 2023

Jeanette Markham Fahrni age 87, born on January 8, 1936, in Tooele, Utah, to Clifford and Lavon Markham, died January 29, 2023, in Taylorsville, Utah. Former spouse Myron (Mick) Liston, married in 1955 and had two children, Steve and DeAnna, whom she adored. Jeanette went on to marry, “The Love of Her Life”, Elvin Fahrni on September 8, 1979. She lovingly called him “Al”, her Inspiration and Soulmate.
Jeanette loved her family and all her grandchildren; each one had a special relationship with her. She was full of energy and always played alongside them. She loved to garden and referred to herself as “Summer Girl” with her beautiful tan and tank tops. She would gather her flowers, especially her roses to make beautiful bouquet to showcase on her table or in the motorhome. Her favorite was riding around on the motorcycle with her best friend and love “Al”, even into her 80’s when it was just a spin around the neighborhood.  She loved traveling with family and close friends on the motorcycle or in their motorhome and every year she looked forward to her “Sister Trip”. Always, sweet and kind to everyone. She will Forever be Missed.
