Jennifer M Smith

November 17, 1976 ~ January 20, 2020 (age 43)


Jennifer Michelle Weaver Smith was born in Milton, FL on November 17, 1976, and passed away in Crestview, FL on January 20, 2020. She was taken from this earth too soon and too young.


She was preceded in death by her mother, Debbe Weaver; grandmother, Betty Hoover; and grandfathers, Walter Hoover and Leonard Weaver. She is survived by her father, Frankie Weaver; grandmother, Sadie Weaver; sister, Rusti Mynard (Ryan); children, Taylor Weaver, Christian Smith, Lexi Smith, and Drew Bryan; two grandchildren, Luke and Noah; nephew, Brent Mynard; and niece, Halle Mynard. Jennifer also leaves behind her boyfriend and loving caregiver, Jesse.


As a lifelong resident of Crestview, Jennifer attended Northwood Elementary School, Richbourg Middle School, and was a member of class of 1995 at Crestview High School. During her time in high school, she was a member of the Big Red Machine Color Guard and marched half time in the 1992 Cotton Bowl in Dallas, TX.


Summer pool parties were a staple at the Weaver house, where Jennifer and her friends and cousins would spend endless hours swimming, lounging in the sun, and dancing to the radio.


Even though she became a mother at a young age, she loved her children dearly and was their biggest fan. She bubbled with excitement over becoming a grandmother.


Jennifer had a childlike playfulness and could excite laughter, especially when in the company of her mother and sister. She will be remembered for her laughter and wit.


The family has chosen to celebrate Jennifer's life privately. They would like to thank every friend and family member that reached out and visited during Jennifer's illness. You made her last days more bearable knowing that she was loved by all of you.
