Jeni Marie Wheatley, 61, of Littleton and formerly of Salida died April 30, 2019.

Jeni was born on July 22, 1957 in Gibson City, IL to Wayne and Dorothy (Shadwell) Wheatley. She was the middle of the Wheatley’s three daughters and was named after her paternal grandmother and great grandmother, something she was so proud of.

A 1975 graduate of Salida High School, her high school years were spent cheerleading the Spartans to victories , cruising “F” street, admiring the cute athletes and enjoying her friends.

Deciding she wanted to live in the big city, she moved to Denver and began working for a roofing supply company. When Dawn and Randy (sister and brother-in-law) decided to open their own roofing supply business, Jeni followed as their accounting/office help. During the 20+ years of working together, Dawn and Jeni not only were family but developed a friendship that only two sisters with warped senses of humor could have. Stupid pictures sent at all hours of the day or night, laughing until tears were running down the face, pretending they were Beany and Cecil while wearing their beany copters and their favorite tag-team effort….picking on their little sister, Amy.

Ms. Wheatley was a kind, tender hearted, fun loving individual. She never knew a stranger and had an uncanny ability to remember the names of everyone, including their children and pets.

Jeni had many loves: the Denver Broncos, cooking, camping, being outdoors, outfitting, sprint car racing, animals, friends, family and especially her grandson, Jakson.

Her great dislike for spiders and feet became a point of many Facebook posts. She was always a good sport when she was tagged on a post that contained these two eye sores.

Survivors include her mother Dorothy; sisters Dawn (Randy) Rehbein and Amy (Jack) Close; step son Cole (Jasmine) Sharpe; grandson Jakson; nieces and nephews Jamie (Nate) Lowther, Chad (Mary) Close, Collin Kelly, Carson Kelly, Aedan Lowther, Ryanne Lowther and Skylar Close.

Ms. Wheatley was preceded in death by her father Wayne; grandparents; soul mate Rick Hawkins; and very special friends Steve Price and Bob Holton.

A celebration of her life is planned for Friday, May 17, 2019 at 11 a.m. at the Three Trees Chapel, 13416 West Arbor Place, Littleton.

A reception will immediately follow the service at American Legion Post No. 178, 1655 Simms St, Lakewood.

An informal get together in remembrance of Jeni will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at Wallbanger’s, 720 E Hwy 50, Salida from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Flowers are welcome and memorial contributions may be made to the American Legion Post No. 178, 1655 Simms St., Lakewood, CO 80215 or the Ark Valley Humane Society, P. O. Box 1335, Buena Vista, CO 81211-1335.

Arrangements were through Apollo Funeral and Cremation Services of Littleton by Miles Harford, a very dear family friend.
