Jennifer Lynn Keith

Feb 22 1987 - Dec 03 2011

Jennifer Lynn Keith was born February 22, 1987 to Sharon Standeven and John William Keith in Dallas, Texas. Jennifer’s brilliant blue eyes and cheery smile were immediately a trademark and shining light for the family. Jennifer’s vibrant personality and sweet spirit carried her to studies which would have led to a focus on families and children in child protective services with the completion of her masters degree from TWU in May of 2012. She attended high school in Celina, Texas where her achievement in cross-country track awarded her many accolades, and where she made life-long friendships. Her creativity and love of life was witnessed by her family and friends through the love and devotion she showed to her nieces, Madalynn and Halley, and as well through her poetry and song writing. Jennifer’s life was cut short in an accident on December 3, 2011. Jennifer is survived by her mother Sharon Keith Long (spouse Bill) of Gunter, TX; father John William Keith (spouse Sherri) of Mesquite, TX; brother John William Keith, Jr. of Sunnyvale, TX; sister Ashley Kristine Keith and Ryan William Perez of Van Alstyne, TX; grandparents John Finch and Glenda Kay Keith of Sunnyvale, TX; grandparents Herbert Norton and Alice Hodges Standeven of Kimberling City, MO; aunts and uncles Kathy and Britt Moreland; Sandra and Duane Watts; Kevin and Maria Keith; Herbert Standeven; Stuart Standeven; Stephanie and Roy Washburn; David and Rene Standeven; great aunts and uncles Elizabeth and Stanley Wallace; Lois and Chuck Wells; and a host of first, second, third and fourth cousins and many other loving family members and friends. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, December 7 in the chapel at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home on Central Expressway in Allen, Texas at 12:00 noon, with Rev. Skip Wallace officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Committal of Jennifer’s earthly being will take place immediately following the service at the Ridgeview Memorial Park Pavilion. Please wear colorful clothing to celebrate the time we had with Jennifer for this time of remembering. Jennifer's favorite color was blue and she loved colorful things. We want to remember her by dressing as she would want to see us. The family is accepting donations in lieu of flowers. Contributions can be made online or at the funeral home.
