Jamie S Hendriksen, mother, wife, aunt, daughter, and friend, passed away unexpectedly on June 23, 2020, in Tooele, Utah. Born to Russell and Mabel Spencer on January 15, 1957 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Jamie is preceded in death by parents Russell and Mabel, brothers Chris and Jed Spencer. She is survived by husband, Gordon J Hendriksen; daughter, Haylee Hendry (Eric); brother, Dan; nephew, Casey; niece, Dorothy; and countless loved ones. Jamie grew up in Salt Lake City. One of her favorite memories was watching her father milk their cow and squirt the milk at kittens. She graduated from Granite High School. She worked at a dry cleaner that was owned by family, and later an ice cream factory. She met the love of her life when they were neighbors. A fast friendship was formed, and they married on May 4, 1983. Their daughter Haylee was born, and Jamie loved being a stay at home mother. When Haylee started school, she was a homeroom parent. They ate snacks and played board games together after school. As Haylee grew, she continued to be a homemaker, and enjoyed hobbies such as making crafts. She always had something crafty she was working on. She would be immersed in a project until another craft interested her more. The long list of crafts she enjoyed were: making beautiful jewelry with beads and wire wrapping; making figures with beads and wire, such as angels, or even scorpions; crochet, sewing, string art, painting with acrylics, origami, calligraphy, plastic canvas, cross stitch and embroidery, macrame, and near the end of her time on earth she was enthralled with pour painting. Her absolute favorite color was purple, and she made many paintings with purple colors. A gift card to a craft supply store would make her eyes light up with possibilities. Jamie gave so much of herself throughout her life. She gave her time, energy, compassion and love. She was a caregiver for multiple family members in her home. These were not easy times, but she carried herself with grace and bravery. In 2003, Jamie began volunteering at The Tooele Children’s Justice Center. She made many close friends throughout her 17 years there. When Covid-19 prevented her from volunteering, she missed her friends greatly and was looking forward to when it would be safe enough to return. She liked music and watching scary movies that she called her “spookers”. She loved the many pets in her life. She kept her fingernails long and painted them often. Her favorite holidays were Halloween and Thanksgiving. She was joyful and friendly; her laugh was infectious. She enjoyed making desserts and learned that Rice Krispies Treats taste better when made with brand name cereal. She gave her love generously. She loved her husband, daughter, son in law, extended family, and numerous dear friends and acquaintances in her community, including her neighborhood and local grocery store. She is missed greatly. We will always have her love. Celebration of life to occur at a later date.\n\nTo send flowers or a memorial gift to the family of Jamie S Hendriksen please visit our Sympathy Store.
