She will be deeply missed by her siblings; Mike, Erika and Kim Moroun, her brothers-in-law; Matt and Kyle Tonkin, by her Nana; Alice Coupe, by her dear friends; Marissa Wood, Renée Fox and Chris Donaldson.

Jennifer will be fondly remembered by her nephew Decker Brassard, her close cousins Melissa Brinklow & Owen Janisse as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins & friends.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude and sincere thanks to Natalie Desjardins and Fabienne Blaine, and the caregivers for their excellent care. We would also like to thank her family & friends for all their love and support.

Jennifer was a kind, compassionate, loving spouse and mother. She had a big heart and she was always willing to go to great lengths to help those around her. Spending time with her children and family brought her great joy. She loved camping, canoeing and kayaking. She loved her fur babies; Teddy, Tucker and Tilly profoundly.

I wish that human language contained even one word that could provide an ounce of comfort but of course there isn’t, so I won’t even try.
We love you.
