Woman who died in Bryce Canyon flash flood remembers as an avid hiker and loving mother

An Arizona woman died over the weekend after being caught in flash floods in Bryce Canyon National Park.

Three days before regular classes began, teacher Jeanne Howell set out for what she described in her planner as her “weekend of adventure” in Bryce Canyon.

“My wife and I always joke that my mother doesn’t have frown lines. She has happy lines because she smiles so much,” said Howell’s son, Benjamin.

Howell set a goal each year to hike as many miles as were counted that year. For example, in 2022 she hiked over 2,022 miles. Each year she has achieved her goal despite having months left.

“She would say, ‘We’re going to do 15 miles today and 22 miles today, so make sure you get up at 4 in the morning. We’re going,'” said Benjamin.
