Jennifer Ann Storms

1964 ~ 2022 (age 57)


Jennifer Ann Storms, 57, of Menan and Idaho Falls, passed away peacefully in her home Friday, January 7, 2022 surrounded by family.

Jennifer (Jeni) was born March 1, 1964 to Joseph H. Bauer and Glenda Bauer in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Jennifer grew up in Idaho Falls where she attended Holy

Rosary Catholic School and Clair E. Gale Jr. High School before graduating from Idaho Falls High School in 1982. Following graduation, she attended Utah State University between downhill skiing, golfing, and meeting the love of her life and lifetime companion of 32 years, Brian Storms. They were married on August 18, 1989 at First Presbyterian Church in Idaho Falls.

The tiny family moved to Pocatello in 1990 to finish school. The Gate City agreed with them and they stayed long enough to raise the boys and make some fast friends. Jeni and Brian moved to Menan in 2007 and started a new chapter of their lives. Jeni was an outdoors fanatic and would withstand anything to be out with her boys. Jeni is survived by her husband Brian; Sons Jason, Randall (Kelley) of Richland, Washington; brother Joe Bauer of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, sister Jill Villarreal (Rudy) of Henderson, Nevada; grandchildren Kennedy Storms, and Braxton Storms. She is preceded in death by her parents.
