Jolene was born in Fremont, California to Buck and Billie Lyons. Jolene’s mother got her into the Aerospace industry in California. She was transferred to Utah where she worked for Litton, then Northrup Grumman, and then she transferred to L3 where she worked until she became too ill.

Jolene is survived by her husband Guy Ainsworth, brother Buck Lyons, daughters Nicole Ordiway (Kris), and Shannon Ainsworth, son Joe Whitfield (Dolly), grandchildren, Azhurel (Kaylee), Jesse, Jenna, Brooklyn, Hudson, and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father Buck Lyons Sr., mother Billie Lyons, and brother Kevin Lyons.

Jolene and Guy have been active members of the Calvary Chapel in Salt Lake City, UT since 2002.

Jolene met her soulmate Guy, on May 17th, 1996. They were married on October 30, 1999 at the Riviera in Las Vegas NV. Jolene grew to love camping, fishing and hunting very quickly. She also enjoyed skiing, long walks on the highline canal, riding the 4-wheeler, and all things fitness. She and Guy spent all of their time together making precious memories with family and friends.

Jolene was the missing puzzle piece to our family. We have all been changed by her love and deep faith in the Lord. She taught us to communicate on a deeper level and never let pride or being right spoil relationships. Family always came first to Jolene, who loved and protected us all fiercely, especially Guy.

We will miss Jolene terribly. Knowing that we will all be together again some day, brings us all peace. We will treasure each and every amazing memory until we reunite in God’s presence.

Wish I could be there with you today. You are amazing people and Jolene was a wonderful influence for good. Grateful to have had some time with all of you. Peace and blessings to you.

We met the Jolene and Guy at the infusion center. Jolene and I were going through treatment every Thursdays. Guy was always by her side. The four of us had time to get to know each other. She texted me a picture of Hudson shortly after his arrival. You could tell how tickly she was even through a text. She wished her grandchildren were closer so she could see them more often. We went through rough times together. I called Jolene my chemo buddy. She was a kind person. May there be comfort in knowing that someone so special will never be forgotten.

There are not enough words to express what Jolene is in life and even more now in her passing, where she was not only my BFF, I had the opportunity to be united in this life with someone who was so angelic in person, spirited with wit, charm, beauty, care and love to share with not only me but those of us who were fortunate to enjoy Jolene in this life. My heart aches, there is a void, where her presence is no longer to have conversations or embrace her when wanting to get together. The bond I had with this beautiful woman, was one like a sister, having similar characteristic traits as if we were family, thinking the same way, sharing similar interests. Your Ainsworth family will be a big part of my life now, to keep you close. RIP my BFF, I love you.

Dear, sweet Jolene, your beautiful soul will be missed on earth. My birthday sister is now a guardian angel, watching over all of us.
