Jennifer Dykman Squire, age 43, of Roosevelt, beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister, passed away on September 11, 2011 at her home. She fought colon cancer valiantly and with the same quiet determination that shaped her life.

She was born September 12, 1967 in Panorama City, California to Diane and Victor Dykman.

She was a bright and happy child who overcame much in her life. She was diagnosed with dyslexia and other learning disabilities and people told her she would have a hard time graduating from high school.

Jennifer graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1986, served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Atlanta, Georgia, and earned a degree in Special Education from Utah State University.

Jennifer got a job teaching special education at LaPoint Elementary. She was a great teacher, who understood her student's needs.

While attending institute in Roosevelt, she met the love of her life, Cris Squire. They were married on March 27, 1997 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Together they have three beautiful children. Cris has been her best friend and constant companion these last fourteen years and has been especially kind, compassionate, and supportive during her struggle with cancer.

She was a wonderful wife and mother. She taught her children of temporal and spiritual things. She made certain that her children knew Heavenly Father's Plan in all things.

Jennifer is survived by her loving husband, Cris, and their three children, Nick, Treena, and Paul, all of Roosevelt; parents, Vic and Diane Dykman, Draper; sister, Melissa (Sander) Sharp and their five children, Gilbert, Arizona; parents-in-law, Paul and SueAnn Squire, Roosevelt; and various brothers-and sisters-in-law including Shallin Squire who brought dinners every Sunday for the last year and a half.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 in the Roosevelt First and Fourth Ward Chapel. There will be a viewing held on Tuesday from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Hullinger Mortuary and Wednesday from 10:00-10:45 a.m. at the church.
