Janet Robinson Hess
July 15, 1953 – January 16, 2022
Janet Robinson Hess passed away peacefully on January 16, 2022, surrounded by family following a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer.
While working at the Brigham City Hospital she met and married the love of her life, best friend, and eternal companion, Dave Hess, M.D. They were sealed in the Manti Temple. She was the happiest spending time with him, either on the back of their motorcycle, traveling to their homes in Brigham and Chandler Arizona, or sharing a Dr. Pepper on the back deck.
She was a fiercely devoted mother and grandmother. Taking great care in the details of her family’s lives was her life’s work and her greatest joy. She made hundreds of amazing meals for her family and loved teaching and passing her recipes to her girls. She shared her love of Lake Powell and taught her kids and grandkids to waterski there and at Willard Bay. She was an accomplished pianist with a beautiful voice. Her family will treasure memories of her lullabies at bedtime and singing time around the piano.
Her life was a series of quiet, meaningful acts of kindness. She enjoyed serving in her church callings, schools, community, and neighborhood. She made countless meals for those in need, baked homemade bread for neighbors, and shared her thousand-watt smile and happy, heartfelt conversation with everyone.
Janet is preceded in death by her mom and dad, her grandson, and son-in-law. She is survived by her eternal champion for time and all eternity, Dave Hess, seven daughters and one son: Paige (Greg) Jensen, Jacey (Spencer) Davis, Alison (Dave) Mickelsen, Melissa (Max) Martinez, McCall (Van) Robinson, Kristin (David) Hagan, Jordan (Marcus) Richmond, Adam (Emily) Hess, thirty-five grandkids, two brothers, one sister, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Services will be held for Janet on Friday, January 21st in the Brigham City 20th ward chapel at 650 Anderson Drive in Brigham City. Friends are welcome to greet the family from 10-11:15 am; the funeral service will begin at 11:30 am. Janet will be buried in Richfield on Saturday at noon with a graveside service for friends and family.
