Jennifer was born February 25, 1979 in Lethbridge and raised in Magrath until she graduated in 1997. Her love for the fine arts refined her into the beautiful person she became. Jennifer loved singing, dancing, ballet and always performed at her best. Through her hands, Jennifer learned to play the piano and with her abilities, created many heartfelt and enjoyable moments for both friends and family.
And yet, her greatest love was becoming the mother to her five children. Being her kid’s biggest fan and supporter, Jennifer loved each of them completely and unconditionally. She taught them the importance of faith over fear and led by example, always displaying kindness to others.
When she had a moment of free time, Jennifer enjoyed a variety of hobbies including a love of fitness and was a sought after fitness trainer at “Bootcamp” with many clients vying for her ideas and abilities. Jennifer was a hard working person, who overcame many obstacles and while her life was sometimes challenging, Jennifer showed that life could also be beautiful.
Jennifer will always be known for her soft disposition, kindness of heart and for reaching out to support those struggling with similar challenges. When you think of Jennifer, celebrate the good memories you have. Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.
Her presence in our lives will be sorely missed.
