Obituary for Jennifer T. Smith
Jennifer (Jen) Theresa Smith, 45, passed away suddenly on October 20, 2016 at her home in Kansas City, Missouri. Jen was born on September 29, 1971 to Bob and Judy Winkeljohn and was the youngest of three. She grew up in the Kansas City metropolitan area, attended St. Charles Grade School, Oak Park High School, and University of Missouri-KC. She married Mark Smith in the fall of 1997 and spent the subsequent 17 years living in Colorado Springs, CO, where she was a technical writer and marketing professional. Jen and Mark recently moved back to Kansas City to be closer to family and friends. Jen’s life was much too short but her love for her family was a lifetime’s worth. Jen is survived by her husband, Mark of the home; parents, Bob and Judy Winkeljohn; brothers, Chris and Greg Winkeljohn. In addition to her extended sisters, Lauren Dillman and Lilly and Kelsey Winkeljohn; and brothers, Kevin and Gary Smith, Jen is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins, her many in-laws and her two dogs Alice and Jeff. Jen was always there for her family especially during life’s trying times, and she brought much joy and laughter to all those around her. Jen was deeply loved by her family and friends and will be missed dearly.
