Jennifer and Trey met in May of 2000 and would be sharing their twenty-first anniversary together this August 2021. Jennifer was a loving wife, mother, nurse, and avid gardener and outdoors person. Jennifer's only dedication was to her family. She never needed a night out with girls. She would always rather choose to be home with Trey and the children. She was a magnificent person with the most beautiful and honest soul. Jennifer's love was unwavering and her charity was effortless. She was truly a good person. Jennifer loved to travel with Trey and their children around the country, especially to remote desert areas in the Southwest where she found peace surrounded by native lands, wildlife, and natural beauty. Jennifer will be missed badly by all those she touched. Jennifer loved unconditionally until the day she died. “We love you Mommy.”
