Obituary: Jaxie Lou Upton

<! >

1930 ~ 2004

SALT LAKE CITY<! >

- Jaxie Upton, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and my best friend for 56 years, died October 10th after a short battle with cancer. Jaxie was born Sept. 19, 1930 in Missouri.

Jaxie had a great love for the art of decorating and antiques, and she operated Country House Antiques in Salt Lake City from 1976 through 1987. She also enjoyed traveling, camping/fishing, and just being with family, friends, and her cat Amanda.

She is survived by her husband Lane, children David and Michaela, and 11 grandchildren.

A private memorial service will be held Wednesday October 13th for the family.

A special thanks to Nancy and the wonderful crew on 3 West at St. Mark's hospital for their help in easing her pain through her ordeal.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her name to the American Cancer Society would be appreciated.
