Kimberli Christensen Jones passed away October 18, 2022, at the age of 50, in Bozeman, Montana. She was born May 23, 1972 in Gallup, New Mexico. She is preceded in death by her husband, Dr. Jason Andrew Jones. She is survived by three amazing children; Andrew (Alex) Jones, Chloey Jones and Mackenzie (Cameron) Dey, parents Jim and Susan Christensen, sisters; Amy (Melynda) Thorpe, Suzette (Brent) Jacobsen, Rochelle (Matthew) Tingey and Mary (Jake) Jackson, brothers; Jimmy (Lisa), Eddie (Jillian), Leo (Elizabeth) and Joseph (Rachel) Christensen.

Kimberli attended Mesa Public Schools graduating from Mesa Mountain View High School. She was an avid track, cross country star and achieved high academically. While attending ASU she met Jason Andrew Jones and they were married in the Las Vegas Nevada Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints on July 31, 1991. Kimberli graduated from ASU in 1994 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Justice Studies. While Jason was doing medical residency in Minot, North Dakota Kimberli attended Minot State University earing her Masters Degree in 2005. Kimberli ran her husband’s medical practice and was referred to as “the office manager extraordinaire.” She was anticipating returning to school this Spring to earn her PHD.

Kimberli was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served in numerous callings. Her favorite calling was serving in the Primary where she loved practicing her “edible object lessons.” Kimberli was goal oriented and hard working. She was an amazing and loving mother and a favorite Aunt. Kimberli loved the outdoors where she enjoyed biking, skiing, and hiking. She fell in love with Big Sky, Montana and for the past three years made it her home. Her heart was as big as the outdoors. She was always looking for opportunities to serve and assist those in need, particularly children. Kimberli was in the process of creating a non-profit called ‘The Invisible Lunchbox.’ It is a program that will provide lunch tickets for the entire school year for children who don’t qualify for the free lunch program but who’s parents are financially unable to pay for their child’s lunch. The Invisible Lunchbox will ensure each child is fed equally. Her children, Andrew, Chloey and Mackenzie will complete the process of creating this nonprofit and maintain and oversee it.

  • I know Kimberli and Jason from the ward in Queen Creek. Kimberli was an amazing example to me. She was so proud of her children and loved the times she had with each one of you on ski trips and other activities. My heart goes out to you children and to the rest of the family.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Christensen and Jones families. May you feel the peace and love of our Heavenly Father.

    The Roses Red

    The roses red, bloom and grow
    Mid soil and earth down below
    Whose roots cling tight to Mother Earth
    Yet mourners know the flower’s worth

    Mournful glances and tear-stained eyes
    Plagued by death—that great divide!
    While rent and twain thy robe in grief
    To mark a separation, however brief

    The darkened clouds and shadows veil
    We ponder oft of heaven and hell
    A tender flower that bears our grief
    Whose stem and pedal bring relief

    A regal beauty that bears our pain
    And drapes the casket, flow’r, and spray
    Beset by thorns that pierce and bleed
    Yet offering comfort in times of need

    A field afar from where we are
    In rows aligned, both near and far
    To lift us up, they bloom and grow
    Mid soil and earth down below
    Whose roots cling tight to Mother Earth
    Yet roses know the mourner’s worth
