OBITUARY

Jennifer Leigh Smith

August 30, 1979June 6, 2019

Jen Leigh Reaves Smith, born August 30, 1979, passed away peacefully after a brief illness. She was preceded in death by many great people and left behind many more. Jen was a lover of life but would defy the terms other people set. She adored music, dancing and singing. She lived a life with a philosophy of take with you what you can gather from coincidence and everything is chance. Jen never cared to have material things or what money could buy, but only to be surrounded by good genuine people with great hearts, laughter and a good ditty in the air. She was true like ice like fire. Jen loved to travel and have new experiences. She was a person of extreme adventure. Her hair changed constantly, she never met a stranger but was afraid to go to Walmart (Stevie Nix and all) and she had a love for the outdoors especially anything involving water. She was simply complicated and perhaps unique just like everyone else. Those left behind, the ones she loved, know that you were all indeed loved beyond words or actions. A lie was not in her with the truth told across her face. She wanted to help people and opened her home to all in need without expectations if anything in return. She would not want anyone to be sad, but rejoice that she lived life on her terms. She is now with her family that went before and will remember the family left behind. Memorial Service will be a held at Gray Brown-Service Mortuary in a celebration of her life on Tuesday June 11th, 2019 with visitation an hour prior. T'was not a life as long as some, but more memorable than others. For now and forever she truly lives.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Jennifer went to elementary school with my son David Roberts. We lived on the other end of Old Mill Rd from y’all. God be with your family and friends during this time of sorrow.

What a beautiful soul. You loved with all your heart. Your laugh was so infectious. I loved that we could talk about anything and everything without judgement. I love your fierce loyalty to all those you loved and I will never forget those nights we laughed until we cried. Fly high, gypsy soul..until we meet again. Peace be with you forever.
