Jennifer loved spending time with family and friends and was always up for an adventure. She was at home on the water and loved boating, water skiing, floating the river and was a fantastic swimmer. Jennifer especially enjoyed camping, riding horses and Friday-night skiing at Silver Mountain with friends. She loved animals, often bringing home stray dogs and kittens.
Jennifer was generous and compassionate almost to a fault, loyal to her family and friends and loved life in general. She had a contagious laugh, a great sense of humor and was great fun to be around.
Family and friends are invited to remember the kind, generous and beautiful person that was Jennifer on Saturday, July 29, at 11 a.m. at Real Life Ministries in Pinehurst. Please come and share your memories and say goodbye.
