Jennifer Mary Meyer October 26, 1968 - May 1, 2021

Jennifer Mary Meyer

Jennifer Mary Meyer lived her life in devoted service of her husband, her family, and her community.  Born on Long Island NY on October 26, 1968, her family moved to West Palm Beach, FL shortly thereafter, where Jenni grew up as an only child.  Jenni accepted the LORD as her Savior in 1984, and she and her mother faithfully attended Trinity Assembly of God Church (now Trinity Church International).  Working in the banking industry, she became an interpreter for the hearing impaired in the church’s deaf ministry, where she served faithfully for a number of years.  It was there at the church she met Dave, in August of 1988.  They soon began to date and, at the age of 23, she married Dave on April 11, 1992.

About a year later, Dave and Jenni moved to Augusta GA; then, in May 1995, Dave entered Officer Training School. The Air Force took them to such places as Harbor City, CA; Rapid City, SD; Colorado Springs, CO; Lancaster, CA; Albuquerque, NM; and Montgomery, AL; finally retiring in Dayton, OH.  Along the way, their family grew with Bekki and Matthew, and Jenni took care of Bekki alone during Dave’s two deployments.

Throughout her married years and the military moves, Jenni was involved in multiple church Missionettes/Prims programs (similar to Girl Scouts), Sunday schools, home small groups, and ladies Bible studies.  As a result, many lives were impacted by her life—children, peers, leaders, fellow military spouses, and many more.

Jenni lived a life that was filled with actions for others to follow, including the quiet respect of others, as well as setting an example of unwavering kindness and service to all.  While not a demonstrative woman, Jenni led a life that was filled with love and devotion from all who came in contact with her.

After recently celebrating their 29th anniversary, Jenni will now be spending eternity at peace in Heaven at the feet of Jesus and God our Father. She is survived by her father Art Budek, Mother Sharyn Budek, husband Dave, children; Bekki (13) and Matthew (8), brother-in-law Andrew Meyer and his wife Eva, uncle and aunt John and Jean Smith, brother-in-law Ted Petit, and nephew Chris Petit and his wife Lisa.

Jennifer was preceded in death by her grandparents John and Mary Budek, and Runar and Alice Michleson, Father-in-law Lawrence Meyer, Mother-in-law Kathleen Meyer, and sister-in-law Donna Petit.

    My memories of Jenni are always accompanied by a smile and a fondness for her love of God. She was a wonderful singer, volunteer and cherished friend. I will rest in knowing that she is standing before a perfect God while praying for your comfort here, knowing how much she will be missed. Prayers for a peace that surpasses this situation and for God’s love to blanket each of your hearts.

    Jenny was such a beautiful, Godly woman. I still remember our sewing days at the Kirtland AFB Chapel where we bonded. She was such a blessing. Sweet hugs and prayers for Dave, Bekki, and Matthew.
