Earma Illeane Dennis

July 21, 1932 — April 2, 2024

Earma Illeane Wood Dennis has finished her earthly mission. Illeane was born to Francis Marion Wood and Hazel Lenora Fowlks on July 21, 1932. She was in the middle of 13 siblings. Illeane married Jeremiah Dennis in September 1951. They had four very adventurous children. Gloria, John, Jerry and Terry definitely made life interesting for Jerry and Illeane. Jerry dabbled a variety of professions which took the family to many different Utah towns. Illeane supported his adventures and made every house a home. She raised chickens, pugs and cats and begrudgingly loved them all.  Illeane was an amazing cook and caregiver. She was always looking for ways to help those around her. She fiercely loved her family and the people in her community. She knew, loved and lived the gospel. She also wasn’t shy to share her opinions.

If you left her house hungry, it was your own fault. She is preceded in death by her husband, Jeremiah Dennis, her parents, 6 brothers, 6 Sisters, daughter-in-law, Paula Dennis, son-in-law, Lynn Jenson.
