I grew up with Jenny Seegmiller on the Avenues.  We lived on 9th Avenue.  The Seegmillers lived a few blocks east on 8th Avenue.  Her mother recruited me to join our LDS Ward choir where I learned to sight read (I had no formal music education) and sing bass.  Ever since then music and singing have remained an important part of my life.  I looked up Jenny's obituary and post if here for anyone interested:


Jenny Seegmiller 1952 ~ 2009 After a courageous battle with a lengthy illness, Jenny Seegmiller passed away on October 28, 2009. She was born in Brigham City on April 5, 1952, but spent most of her life in Salt Lake City. Nevertheless, a big part of her heart was always in Brigham City with her Shaw relatives. The other part of her heart was with the Seegmillers in Cedar City. She never tired of visiting there, especially if it involved time at the ranch. Even if she planned to sleep in, you could find her up early on the porch to watch the sunrise, or in front of the windows if it was too cold. She didn't want to miss anything. Jenny was first a caregiver, doting on patients, friends, family and co-workers. She was devoted to her work as a surgical nurse in the operating rooms of LDS hospital and the new IHC Medical Center for more than 35 years. If someone she knew was having a procedure, Jenny was always there for extra support and help, even if it meant coming in for an extra shift. Late each fall, Jenny would take time off work to make jelly, peanut brittle and her special cookies to give to friends and co-workers. Even with her illness, she left a supply to be distributed at Thanksgiving. Jenny is survived by her mother Barbara (Harold) Clayton of Huntsville, AL, father Garn Seegmiller of St. George, UT, brother Jon, sister Heidi, niece Alta, nephew Kristian, as well as loving aunts, uncles and cousins too numerous to mention. After a family service on Sat., Nov. 7th, a visitation will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. at Evans and Early Mortuary, 574 E. 100 S., SLC.

I am very sorry to see this about Jenny. Her father and my father were related, and I'd gone to her house when we were at Stewart. She was also my science fair project partner in 8th grade at Stewart. We did a project on squirrel hibernation. She was always very sweet and we had a good time together. We discovered each other after my father and I were hiking around Salt Lake when my father happened to see Jenny's father, Garn and I was introduced to Garn at that time. Then Jenny and I became good friends.
