Rebecca Dawn Barney, beloved Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, and Friend passed awayFriday June 24, 2011. She was born on Sept. 8, 1973 to James Wm. Jenson III and Sandra K. Tipton. On Feb. 22, 2008, Rebecca married her eternal sweetheart Douglas Andrew (Andy) Barney in the Salt Lake Temple. Blending two families, her own cherished daughters Kaytlyn, MacKenzie, and McKayla joined Andy's children Drew, Dakota, Damion and Chalissa. Rebecca was a faithful member of the LDS Church. Attending the temple brought her great joy and peace; and she went often. Rebecca was vibrant, fun, smart, loyal, and had a wonderful childlike laugh. Rebecca inspired us all with her courage and determination through several years of serious health problems. She relied on those she loved and on her deep faith to carry her. Rebecca is survived by her husband, children, parents, brothers: Jim (Kerrie), Steve (Mindi), Dave (Tina) and Jeff (Steph), many beloved nieces and nephews, large extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her Grandma Jenson, Her "Nanny" Tipton, and a baby nephew. Though it's painful to be without her, as her family, we are so grateful to know that this separation is only temporary. We express our heartfelt thanks to the amazing, compassionate staff at Bountiful's Lakeview Hospital.
