Jean Marie Page Minert

Our beloved Jean passed quietly on October 31st, 2021 at the age of 92. Born Jean Marie Page on May 15, 1929 in Nelson, Nebraska, she was the third child of Joseph David Page and Carmen Luella Boyle Page. Her childhood and youth were spent in Nelson and on the family farm just north of town.

After graduating from Nelson High School in 1947, Jean moved to Lincoln, Nebraska and worked in the Elgin watch factory. Her high school sweetheart, Roy Thomas Minert, returned from military service in late 1947, and the couple married on July 4, 1948 in Nelson. They made their first home in Lincoln, where they welcomed sons David Roy and Roger Phillip. In 1952 the family moved to Long Beach, California.

Jean soon became acquainted with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints through a neighbor, and the couple was baptized on June 20, 1953. The family was sealed in the Mesa Arizona Temple on November 19, 1954. Sons Brian Douglas and Loren Ronald soon followed.

In 1961 the family moved to Brigham City, where the last two sons, John Steven and Daniel Glenn, were born.

Jean's life was spent as a devoted wife, mother, and servant of the Lord. Jean was a talented homemaker, and made the best chocolate chip cookies in the world. She raised six fine men, and generously dedicated time to serve her neighbors and ward family. She and Roy lived, loved and served in Brigham City for over 60 years. Jean spent countless hours searching out her ancestors and getting their temple work done. She served in many ward callings, and as an accomplished organist and pianist, played the piano until nearly the end. Jean loved to play Rummikub and was the family reigning champion. Always in the service of others, her first words upon meeting people were often, "How are you?", and "Can I help you with something?" She told her granddaughters, "I hope you find as good of a man as I did to marry."

After Roy retired, the couple served seven missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including a Calgary Alberta Canada proselytizing mission, Ogden Temple mission, and several Family History missions near Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

Jean was preceded in death by her husband Roy and her son David (Ida Faye). She is survived by sons Roger (Jeanne), Brian (Debbie), Loren (DeLin), John (Cindy), and Daniel (Debbie), 26 grandchildren, and numerous great grandchildren.

Jean, your caring heart and smile will be greatly missed until we meet again.

Funeral services will be held Friday day, November 5th, at 11:00 a.m. at the Brigham City 24th Ward chapel at 650 Anderson Drive, Brigham City, Utah.

I am in the Relief Society President at Covington and had the opportunity to be around Jean. I would help assist her with the Sacrament. This experience took place on October 24.
Memory care today. There is a sister, Jean Minnert, who generally nods off during church. I generally nudge her to give her the Sacrament. Today, I gave her the bread, and she had me come close to her, she was talking, I couldn’t understand her, but at end, she sad I don’t want to do it that way. I said we don’t have to. She said, Thank you and nodded off until the water. I gave her the water, she then asked, What does this mean? I replied is the Sacrament and she said thank you and nodded off.
It’s always a pleasure to read about our Covington Branch members to see what wonderful lives they lived and the talents they had. Your mom sounds like a wonderful sister in The Gospel.

After the birth of our third child in November 1994, I spent two weeks with my parents before I could move to California. My husband had started a new job in Southern California after he graduated for U of U. We were not able to travel until she was two weeks old. One night Sister Minert brought us warm snicker doodle cookies. She apologized over and over because she didn’t have the ingredients to make chocolate chip ones. She and Brother Minert had just returned from Salt Lake from the family history center. My oldest daughter took a bite out of one of the cookies and proceeded to tell how she didn’t like how they tasted and spit it out into my hand. My mom and I were embarrassed. Sister Minert left, got in her car, drover to the grocery store, purchased the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, returned home and made a batch. About an hour later, the doorbell rang. It was Sister Minert with a fresh plate of chocolate chip cookies. My daughter tasted one and proclaimed. “These are much better!”
