Jennifer Kay Warburton
October 24, 1963 ~ June 5, 2022
Jennifer Kay Warburton left us on Sunday, June 5, 2022. She was born on October 24, 1963 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Charles and Carma Jane Peters.
Born with boundless energy, Jennifer started gymnastics training at an early age. She attended East High School where she was a gymnastics enthusiast and a star member of the gymnastics team. She graduated in 1982 and later earned an Associate Degree at Utah State. She married Mark Warburton, living together first in Tooele and then in Rush Valley where they raised their son, Richard, and their daughter Kaitlyn. Jennifer and Mark later divorced.
Jennifer had a special gift for working with very young children and comforting seniors. Jennifer’s Grandmother Bowers especially felt her affection and they had a special loving bond. Family was always important to Jennifer, and she greatly missed her mother Carma Jane who died in 1991. Jennifer’s skills led her to work as a medical assistant with the elderly and with daycare for young children.
Jennifer was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed serving the Lord through a full-time mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She later fulfilled callings in the Primary and Relief Society.
Life was not always easy for Jennifer with health issues that followed her throughout her life. But she was a great example of endurance through difficult times and doing the best in the circumstances.
Jennifer is survived by her son, Richard Warburton, Stockton; daughter, Kaitlyn Warburton, Grantsville; brothers, Bill Peters, Tremonton and Matt Peters, Layton; sisters, Donna Eatough, Bountiful, Susan Scullin, Redlands and Julie Elegante, St. George; and father, Charles Peters, Salt Lake City. She was preceded in death by her loving mother, Carma Peters.
A memorial to celebrate the life of Jennifer will be held at a later time. Arrangements entrusted to Lindquist’s Ogden Mortuary.
