Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Jinean G. Madsen, peacefully passed away in Tempe, Arizona on November 12, 2023,with some of her family by her side.

Jinean was born to Gene Woodrow and Mern Tiffany Greenhalgh on December 17, 1937, in Logan, Utah. She was the first of four children: Merrill, Doug and Maureen followed her.

Jinean is preceded in death by her parents and siblings.

Jinean grew up and attended school in Provo, UT, graduating from Provo High School in 1956. Young Jinean had an extra long engagement to Darrell H. Madsen prior to getting married on Sept 1, 1961 in the Manti, Utah Temple. Jinean insisted on finishing her nursing degree at the BYU College of Nursing before they got married, and then used her degree working weekends as an Intensive & Coronary Care nurse until she retired in 2006.

Jinean’s greatest joy in life was her family. During their 62 years together, Darrell and Jinean welcomed 4 children into the world: Michelle (Michael) Rosser of Westfield, IN, Jeffrey D. (Stacey) Madsen of Orem, UT, Natalie (Scott) Brown of Mesa, AZ, and Colette Madsen of Chandler, AZ. They have been blessed with 9 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild, and one more great grandchild due any day.

Jinean loved sending cards and gifts for birthdays, attending grandchildren’s sports and recitals, and getting together for family dinners. Jinean lived a wonderful life of service and devotion. She served faithfully in various callings in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Most recently, she enjoyed serving as a Ward Temple and Family History Consultant as well as on the Compassionate Service Committee, but her favorite calling was serving as the “mom” with the Young Single Adults. Everything in her life revolved around her family, service to others, and her devotion to the Lord.

Our beloved Jinean will be remembered for how she loved and served generously, always thinking of others. We look forward to the day we reunite with her again.

At her request, Jinean’s life will be honored with a Visitation in Arizona and a Graveside Service in Utah. Bunker Family Funerals is coordinating the Visitation which will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 21st from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints building located at 2707 S College Ave, Tempe, AZ 85282.

    We are saddened by Jinean’s passing. She was an everready participant in the pleasures of the delightful “Brown’s” Sunday dinners. And always a source of dinner delights. We will miss those times.

    We always enjoyed sharing family events through our son in law Jeff and daughter Stacey and their family.

  • My prayers and condolences go out to the family of Jinean Madsen. I am blessed that I had the opportunity to know her over the years and visit with her and her husband Darrell over many Birthday lunches we shared. I will miss her energy, bright light and smiles the most. She is soaring with the Angels now and looking over her loved ones from above. Rest in peace my friend, we will meet again.
