OBITUARY

Jenifer Elizabeth Weiss

December 16, 1970April 8, 2018

Jeni grew up in Creston and graduated from Templeton High School. She received her Masters in Education from Chapman University. She was a daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, sister-in-law, niece, teacher, co-worker and friend. With every relationship in her life Jeni did the one universal job we are all called to do: she gave love. Jeni’s love was unconditional, steadfast, generous, and kind. Jeni will also be remembered with a smile as the "keeper of family memorabilia" and chronicler of family history. She was a photographer, movie buff, quilter, crafter, and Christmas lover. She will also be fondly remembered as a head strong, independent woman. Jeni will be greatly missed by many. In honor of the teacher that she was, may we all learn by her example. A celebration of Jeni's life will be held at the Creston Community Center on Sunday, May 20th at 1:30 pm.

ADD A MEMORY

I went through Junior and High school with Jeni. I remember her as always being kind and I never heard a harsh word from her. My favorite memory of her is from Junior High. Graduating from eighth grade, Jeni and I were paired to walk into the ceremony together. The differences is our height made it pretty funny watching us walk in but I would not trade that memory for anything.

You will be missed Jeni.

Mike and I had the honor of calling Jeni our niece, our “Jeni Bean.” She will forever be missed but will always have a special place in our hearts. We were deeply saddened by the news of her passing but comforted by knowing that she is in a peaceful place filled with love, happiness, and surrounded by loved ones we have lost in the pass.

We were not only lucky enough to watch her grow into a wonderful and caring woman, but we also got to watch her help our children grow into the people they are today. Jeni was always a big part in our children’s lives and ours, we can remember the excitement and joy our children had when they knew they were going to get to spend time with their favorite cousin.

A special memory we will never forget is spending the day at the beach house with Jeni. Our kids, Jeni, Mike and I went boogey boarding. Jeni and I got caught up in the under-toe, we were laughing and drifting away in the cold ocean water as Mike and the kids were waving at us. We eventually caught a wave and made it back to the beach. Freezing, Jeni and I sat huddled in front of the heater, resting our cold pruned feet on top of the heater, laughing as we got warm. We were so fortunate and blessed to have gotten to share so many happy memories with her. Jeni was full of endless love for everyone that was in her life, anyone who crossed paths with her was lucky to do so. She will be greatly missed.

Jeni, we love you and cherish you.
Love, Mikey and Kimmie

I was lucky enough to call Jeni my cousin, although we hadn't seen each other in a while there are still so many wonderful memories. I am still in so much shock and sadness that Jeni was taken so early, but she is bringing so much love and happiness to others in Heaven.

I look at photographs of Jeni and can hear her voice, her laugh, and her smile that lit up her face. I will never forget the excitement I had as a child when Jeni would come over to visit or babysit my brother and me. She was so nurturing, fun, and lovable! I especially loved going to her house to look at all her Barbies, talk about movies, share Dominoes cheesy bread, swim, bake goodies, and laugh! Jeni was the first person to teach me how to use a camera. She taught me how to love capturing moments in time, a passion I still have today. I will especially never forget a road trip we took from San Diego to Paso Robles, it was filled with laughs, ice cream, downtown LA, the beach, gossip, and photographs.

I will forever love my cousin Jeni and thank her for all the loving memories we shared.

Love, Katie Bird

Jeni was one of my Best Friends in Junior High and High School. We had some Great Times having Slumber Parties, Raising our FFA Project Animals, going to Football Games and above all just being Friends. We had our own little group. Jeni, Kim, Karen, Tina, and I. Jeni was always the level headed one of our group, who tried to keep the rest of us out of Trouble. Though over the years we have drifted apart, Great Memories remain. Love you and Miss you Jeni. But I am Glad you are a Angel in Heaven now. You were always an Angel to me here on Earth.
