Jennifer Holly “Hallee” Kiehn
February 08, 1973 ~ August 18, 2013
Jennifer Holly “Hallee” Kiehn, of Wenatchee, died suddenly Sunday, August 18, 2013. She was born on February 8, 1973, to Bob and Sherrill (Reynaud) Kiehn in Chico, CA. Soon after her first steps, she started to model children’s apparel for local stores, lent her voice, along with brother, Darren’s, on radio ads her dad produced and appeared in a McDonald’s TV ad singing the famous “Two all-beef patties…” slogan while sitting in a wagon. At age 14, she and her mother moved to Pateros, WA, where she attended school until moving to Wenatchee, where she attended Wenatchee High School. An amazing mother of three children, a daughter, a sister, a loving “YaYa”, an “Auntie” to nieces and nephews, and a best friend, gave her reason to celebrate occasions in style, from decorations to large family gatherings; she loved the holidays and loved to share them with others. Last minute BBQ’s and parties with family and friends were her specialties, aside from being YaYa to Beau. Her reputation for her cooking of “Goulash”, a “No Vegetables Allowed Philosophy” and creamy peanut butter eaten directly from the jar with a spoon, made for interesting gatherings and conversations.
Hallee leaves behind her three children, Alex Earney, Casey Earney, and Maddison Earney all of Wenatchee; parents, Bob (Linda) Kiehn of Chico, CA, and Sherrill Kiehn of Wenatchee; brother, Darren Kiehn of Wenatchee; grandson, Beau Earney of Wenatchee; niece, Hanna Kiehn of Wenatchee; lots of family and friends; and beloved dog, Deegan. She will be missed by her family and her friends to whom she would proclaim loudly, “I Love You to the Moon and Back.”
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, August 31, 2013, at 3:00 p.m. at New Song Church in East Wenatchee. A memorial fund to assist her children in funeral expenses has been set up in her name at Cashmere Valley Bank. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee.
