Jennifer worked many jobs over the years but her focus was always her family. She loved cooking for her family and she was happiest when she was surrounded by them. You could find her in the stands, if the grandchildren were participating in a sporting event, wearing a sweater and flip flops. She showed an abundance of unconditional love toward everyone she knew. If someone was in need, she was there. Her door was always open. Jennifer loved the outdoors and flowers. She enjoyed camping and fishing but, fishing was her favorite.

Jennifer was preceded in death by her husband Joel, her parents Kenneth Strebel and Joan Kalar, her beloved daughter Jamie and her sister Tammy Koester.
