Janice Donnalee Rodriguez, known lovingly as Jan, 69, passed away suddenly on Monday, November 20th, 2023. Jan was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on March 25th , 1954 to Leslie Jean Platt and Marian Terry. When her mother remarried, Jan was adopted by Harold A. Burt whom she always considered her father. Jan grew up in Beaver, Utah surrounded by her family and it was her forever home. Her family and extended family spent a ton of time up on the mountain and Jan would develop a lifelong love of hunting, fishing, and camping. She was most content spending time at Kent’s Lake or around the campfire. She would start prepping to go as early as March and insisted on going up the second that roads were dry enough to get there. She instilled this same love of nature in her sons and in her grandchildren. All of them have a cache of memories with her doing all kinds of outdoor things. It was her solace these past few years, especially when she did not feel well.\n\nThe second of five children, Jan spent her childhood tormenting her siblings and busy with activities for school and church. She got her GED early and started college. It was at this time she met and married Lynn\nRobert Robinson. They moved various places, finally settling in Salina. They divorced after 10 years and she would move herself and her kids home to Beaver to be closer to her parents. Jan later married and\ndivorced Lupe Rodriguez.\n\nOur mom was an extremely hard worker and wore many hats, including waitressing, owning a plaster craft business, nursing and home health, managing at turkey and mushroom plants, ran a motel, and cashiering at multiple local stations, finally landing at the B-Store and working there for 27 years. Mom was abundantly social and loved having a job where she could visit with everyone. Mom had many talents including cooking, sewing, crafting, decorating, gardening, canning, and collecting things. She was very creative and could make neat things out of almost nothing. She was inquisitive, fiercely independent, and could literally sit down and talk to anyone about anything. She could do whatever she set her mind to including car mechanics and a variety of home improvement things like drywall and electrical. Mom loved her reality TV and to travel and always dreamed of going to Alaska, which she finally got to do this past year.\n\nShe was kind, generous, and an excellent listener. She would help anyone, even a complete stranger, before she would ever worry about herself. She went a lot of years without much to make sure that we were taken care of. Although she loved her kids, her family, and her friends, her biggest treasures in the world were her grandchildren and great grandchildren, whom she devoted the last 28 years of her life to. There was no doubt that she loved them and would do anything they needed. Jan missed her mother terribly, and if there is any consolation to her passing it is that she is back in the arms of her mom and with everyone else she loved and missed that had gone before her.\n\nJan is survived by her brother Jon (Linda) Burt, her three children and two bonus daughters; Seleena Penney, Robert (Nicole) Robinson, and Troy (Angelica) Robinson, eight grandchildren, five great grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and so on. She was proceeded in death by her parents, her sisters Kaye and Jerri, baby brother Richard, grandparents, and so many more.\n\nThe family would like to thank Dr. Myers and his staff, officers, EMT’s, and all medical staff for doing what they could to save her.\n\nA memorial service for Jan will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, December 1st, 2023 at the Beaver 3rd /4th Ward Church (220 N Main, Beaver, UT). Visitation will be prior to the service from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. Online condolences may be sent and a livestream viewed, for those who cannot attend in person, at www.mortuary.org.
