Jennifer was born December 3, 1978 in Denver, Colorado. Jennifer accepted Jesus as her Saviour at a young age. She was a homemaker and faithfully helped her husband with the family business. She was a dedicated wife and mother. Her children were her drive and her life; she embraced every moment with them. She went to every basketball game, every Ag sale, she was always 100% supportive of her children, their dreams and endeavors. Jennifer loved every animal; she loved each calf, lamb, dog or cat with a passion. She was driven in any project she started, she had a tremendous cake decorating talent and she loved making cakes for her loved ones. She was quiet, but not a pushover. She was firm and solid on her convictions. Her family was hers to protect and she protected them with a fierceness that one could only envy.
Jennifer loved working jigsaw puzzles, the glittery fairy type that glow in the dark, they decorated the walls of her home, creating a fabulous wonderful world of light in the rooms she graced them in. She loved cooking and made hot full course meals for her family. She taught Sunday School to the little ones at her church, Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church; she loved “her kids” in her Sunday school class.
The holidays were Jennifer’s favorite time. Thanksgiving was all about traditional food and family. Christmas could never be less than a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in almost every room of the house. These two holidays never lacked the “old-fashioned” traditions of her childhood; always wanting what she remembered as a child during the holidays for her family. She never lacked in providing the biggest and the best during this time of year.
Jennifer will be missed beyond any comprehension that we can bear right now. Her touch cannot be replaced. That squealing laughter is already longed for; her beautiful piercing blue eyes are forever etched on our hearts. We love you precious daughter, wife, sister (sissy to her baby brother), momma, aunt, granddaughter and friend, you will not be forgotten. We cherish our time with you, had we known the time with you would be so short...wow! To know such a thing. But we made our time together count. We lived each moment with laughter...and yes, tears, sadness, and some quiet times. But that’s what life is, all of these phases, up and downs, valleys and mountains. But we lived them together with God and our love. In that, we have no regrets and we release you for now, in a way, but not totally. You are here, in our hearts, in our own special way. Until then, we love you. This isn’t goodbye it’s see you later, our precious Jennifer.
