October 8, 1985 - August 2, 2018
Janelle Bassett Belcher passed away peacefully August 2, 2018, following injuries sustained from a biking accident. Janelle was born October 8, 1985, in Vernal, Utah, to Kenneth and Ro Jean Bassett. She was married to Jared T. Belcher April 22, 2006, in the Vernal Utah Temple. They have been blessed with three children, Linkoln, age 8, Lucas, age 5, and Alexis, age 3. Janelle was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and attended the Westbrook 7th Ward in West Jordan, Utah, at the time of her death. Janelle loved a life filled with activity. She loved playing soccer, basketball, volleyball, refereeing, and working out at the gym. She brought joy and happiness to the lives of all she met. After graduating from Uintah High School in 2004, she was employed as a nannie in Connecticut. After returning home to Vernal, she was employed as a counselor for a youth-at-risk program in Vernal, spending some cold nights in mountain camps. Following her marriage to Jared, they lived in the Salt Lake area where she was employed as a veterinary technician—a job that was so much associated with her love of all animals. Janelle loved her children and made very effort to be part of their lives, including being a very successful youth soccer coach for three years. In 2017, she was chosen as Coach of the Year for the West Jordan Youth Soccer program. Janelle loved music and was blessed with a beautiful voice, singing often at church and singing all the time to her children at home. She loved the adventure of outdoor camping and shared her camping skills with her family and friends, including the Young Women of her ward where she served as Young Women’s President. Those who met Janelle immediately connected with her loving spirit and considered her as their friend. She was considered a great listener and always knew the right questions to ask to keep conversations going. She will be greatly missed by many family members and friends. Janelle’s survivors from her immediate family include her husband and three children, her parents, and five siblings—Annalee Johnson (Rick) Vernal, Utah; Devin (Sue) Vernal, Utah; Jillyn Simmons (Matthew) Vernal, Utah; Jeff (Catlin) Price, Utah; Steven, Logan, Utah.
