Born December 4, 1964 in Norwalk, Ohio to William Yoder and Yvonne Yoder Dearth, she was raised in New London, lived in Roosevelt, Utah for a few years, and then settled in Norwalk.
Jenni worked in the accounting field, starting at McLaughlin & Company, where she supported her most current employer, RA Bores Excavating. She worked for RA Bores for 14 years as their office manager and considered the entire Bores family as her own.
She was also a credentialed tax preparer for many long-term clients. She loved to spend time with her family, traveling, gardening, antiquing, doing crafts and spending time on the beach. She was a basketball mom for Aiden’s AAU and school teams.
Jenni’s dream was to run a Siberian Huskey rescue where her sweet Murphee and Roxy would lead the pack.
She knew and lived the true meaning of unconditional love. She was giving, kind, thoughtful, loving to whoever was a part of her life. And she could make us laugh, whether a one-liner or a story of childhood escapades.
In 2001, Jenni married the love of her life, Frank Kriews. Together they raised her two daughters, Mariah & Danielle, and provided a home for their nephew Aiden, and niece Amaya during her visits.
Jenni is survived by her husband, Frank; daughters, Mariah Yoder of Columbus, OH, Danielle Perry of Norwalk, OH; nephew, Aiden Yoder of Norwalk, OH; siblings, Bernie (Cindy) Yoder of Milan, OH, Debby (Alex) Robert of Payson, UT, Beth (Dan) Norman of Scappoose, OR, Annette (Robert) Pullin of Roosevelt, UT, Amber Yoder of Norwalk, OH; aunt, Ernestine Cole of Waco, TX; her beloved dogs, Murphee and Roxy; numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, cousin, aunts & uncles, and in-laws.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Yvonne Yoder Dearth; grandmother, Inez Case Gasser; cousin, Tyrone Smith, and many other beloved family members.
