Jenee Metrick, 47 Williston, ND

Jenee Metrick, 47, Williston, N.D., passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at her home in Williston, N.D. ​Jenee Joyce Metrick was born on Jan. 12, 1977, to parents Beth Huff and Melvin Metrick in Santa Clara, CA. Starting her education in Sidney, the family then moved to Mesquite, TX., returning to Sidney and graduating from Sidney High School with the class of 1996. She graduated from Williston State College with an associate degree in applied science.

​She was employed by Quail Tools for the past 13 years. Enjoying her job and the people she worked with, describing them as her second family.

Following her mom's lead, Jenee was an avid 49ers' fan. On Sundays, without a doubt, you would find her and her mom watching them play and there was no talking allowed when their boys were on the big screen. Jenee had a loud laugh that would make it nearly impossible to not know where she was. Quick witted and ready to joke at any given time (if her 49ers weren't playing). She loved music and if at a store, her mom and sister would always trail behind so they could enjoy watching her dance down the aisles to songs over the speakers. Enjoying genealogy, anything relating to WWII, reading and especially loved her Harry Potter. Jenee, being caring and patient, was loved by any and all children she met and always made them feel loved as if they were her own.​While being a WWII fanatic, it was only fitting that Jenee and her mom took a vacation to Washington, D.C. While there, they visited many museums and toured the city. They even walked six blocks to what they thought was the nearest subway, only to get off a block and a half from where they had just walked from. Beth and Jenee also learned they weren't quite ready to conquer the Arlington National Cemetery steps. ​While she loved to travel, Hawaii was always number one. Jenee and her friend drove around an entire island in a convertible with the top down. She always wanted to return for another trip, so, we are sure her toes are already in the sand.

Jenee left an impression on everyone she met, and she will be greatly missed and will always be remembered for the kind and gentle soul she had and her ability to make you smile, even if you weren't feeling like it.

She Is survived by her mother, Beth Huff, Williston, N.D .; siblings, Jason Johnson, Fairview, Joel (Melody) Metrick, Williston, N.D., Jennifer Hernandez, Sidney, Jodie (Thomas) Viara, Williston, N.D., Lexi (Kyle Lester) Hernandez, Helena, and uncle, Bruce (Monika) Johnson, Laurel. Jenee leaves behind many nieces and nephews; numerous cousins that she showed the ropes to. Jenee is also survived by her loving family at Quail Tools.

​Jenee was preceded in death by her father, Melvin Metrick, grandparents, Ordean and Joyce Johnson, John and Joyce Metrick; uncles, Michael Johnson, Kelly Johnson, Keith (Jayne) Johnson.​
