On Sunday March 20, 2005 Jennifer left us after a hard fought fight with cancer. Jennifer passed at home surrounded by her family and friends.

Jennifer was born in Fort Payne, Al. September 20, 1980 to DeLane & Dana Griffin. Jennifer was a 1998 graduate of Fort Payne High School. She was a beautiful daughter, a caring sister and devoted and loving mother. The first thing she would want anyone to know is; she was Tyler Austin Griffin's mom! He was her life. She fought so hard to live, not for the sake of life, but because leaving her son simply was not an option she would consider.

Jennifer did not like the use of Step-Father, mother, sister or brother. Jennifer loved and was loved in return by the extended family we became as a result of her Mother and Father remarrying. With that said I list the family that survived her below:
Son:............................Tyler Austin Griffin
Parents:.......................Dana & Gary Isbell & DeLane & Deanna Griffin
Brothers:.....................Chase Griffin & Mark Isbell
Sisters:........................Anna Isbell & Jade Chesser
Grandfathers:..............Carl Goldsmith & Noie Griffin
Grandmothers:............Christine Hill & Naomi McSpadden
Great Grandmother:....Annie Griffin

Please read the tributes to Jen placed here by family and friends and feel free to place your own story or memory about Jen. I (her Dad) believe you will see and learn many things about Jen from the tributes that may surprise you. I also believe you will see one reoccurring theme; that would be how gentle and kind Jen was. Every Doctor, every nurse, everybody, that visited would comment on a kind of peaceful spirit that radiated from Jen like warmth from the sun.

Take some time to read about Jen! She made me want to be a better person. I think you may feel the same.
