On Sept. 1, 2017, Jeanine Danielson “was received into the arms of Jesus Christ,” whom she accepted as her Savior. There were many things that defined Jeanine as a person, but most of all was her
love for Christ and her desire for others to come to salvation and grow spiritually.
Jeanine was born on March 3, 1954, to Bernard and Elnora Owen in Kalispell, where she later married and raised three children. Jeanine was always a mother to more children than her own; her arms were always open to those who needed a mother.
Jeanine was an active member of the community, and owned her own salon, Country Hair Design for 15 years. She was a cowgirl at heart and loved to ride her horses, and the simplicity of ranch life, an appreciation that she has passed on to her children. She was also an avid gardener and a wonderful cook.
Jeanine was devoted to bringing her three children to Christ. She continually prayed and encouraged them until they all came to the saving knowledge of his sacrifice. Through her influence
there will be so many people who will join her in eternity, including her six grandchildren whom she adored. Jeanine loved to give gifts, and that was the greatest gift she gave to us.
Jeanine is survived by her children, Kristy and Doug Wray of Marion, Chad and Christi Danielson of Buffalo, Wyoming, and Justin and Caiti Danielson of Kila. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Siri, Sophia, Bryson, Wesson, Maisy, and Lynnly Danielson; and by her siblings, Patsy Treat, Bob and Gina Owen, Ed Owen, Bernadette and Shon Caigle, and Kathleen Owen; and many nieces and
Jeanine “has been reunited in eternity” with her brother Charlie Owen, whom she was extremely close with, her parents Bernard and Elnora Owen, and her nephew Brad Treat.
There will be a memorial service held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Smith Valley Grange, with a light lunch to follow.
Her life is just beginning!
