Jeanene Helen (Sheppard) Maloof

October 13, 1946 ~ September 16, 2022 (age 75)


Jeanene Helen (Shephard) Maloof, age 75, of Palisade, NE passed away on Friday, September 16, 2022 in Palisade.

Jeanene was born October 13, 1946 in Salt Lake City, Utah to parents Doyle Melvin Sheppard and Ruth Eva Jeffs Sheppard Meredith Jorgensen.  She has two brothers, David Bell of Moab, Utah and John Meredith of West Valley City, Utah; and four sisters, Sherry Dodge of Laverkin, Utah, Gloria Rivera of Ogden, Utah, Stephanie Meredith of Rio Rancho, New Mexico and Shelley Meredith of West Valley City, Utah. 

Jeanene grew up in Salt Lake City where she attended Granite High School. She was a member of the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Posse. 

On October 15, 1962, Jeanene married Edward Lawrence Maloof. They were blessed with four children, Troy Lawrence Maloof, Sherlynn (Jim) Kirk of Palisade, Rhonda Lee (Lamar) McDaniel of Salt Lake City and Larry John Maloof of Sutherland, NE.

One day, about 40 years ago, Sherlynn was trying to get her mother’s attention across a large parking lot and yelled “Weenie”!  The funny little nickname stuck and became the name that most people knew her by in later years.

One of Jeanene’s favorite past times was to sit around with her sisters and drink coffee; she also enjoyed playing cards or bingo.  Jeanene loved her horses. In fact, she loved all animals, but the chief love of her life was her children, thirteen grandchildren and eleven beloved great grandchildren. 

Jeanene was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 42 years, Edward Lawrence Maloof; a sister, Doyleen Iverson; one son, Troy Lawrence Maloof; a granddaughter, Cheala Deserae Bateman; a grandson, Samuel Lamar McDaniel; and one great granddaughter, Kyla Nichea Martinez.

Those left to celebrate her life include her three children, Sherlynn (Jim) Kirk, Rhonda Lee (Lamar) McDaniel and Larry John Maloof; two brothers, David Bell and John Meredith; four sisters, Sherry Dodge, Gloria Rivera, Stephanie Meredith and Shelley Meredith; and many extended family members and friends.
