Jennifer Rene Reeves

Jennifer Rene Reeves, age 40, Columbus, Kansas, passed away on November 27, 2022 at the University Medical Center in Columbia, Missouri after a courageous battle.

She was born November 11, 1982 in Joplin, daughter of the late Larry “Sonny” Reeves and Sue (Reed) Reeves Gordon of Joplin.

Jennifer had a wonderful personality, sense of humor, and her own kind of love for people.  She loved to joke and have fun.  She also loved to travel, go on ghost hunts, or load as many children up as she could and go look at Christmas lights whether that was in Branson, Tulsa, or even Arkansas!  She loved her family very much, and enjoyed spending time with them, but her favorite time was spent with her niece and great-niece, and cousin.  She loved to bake, cook, do crafts, plan parties, and decorate for Christmas and Halloween.  Those were her two favorite holidays; she would decorate the yard in Webb City like candy land!  She loved horror movies and a variety of music.  Though she wasn’t necessarily religious, she was spiritual, and she knew she was right with God.  She will be greatly missed by all. She fought a long, hard battle right up to the end!

In addition to her father, Jennifer was preceded in death by her grandmother, Doris Wood, an uncle, Jeff Reed, and a nephew, Miles Bresee.

She is survived by her sisters, Shannon Reeves of MO, Sue Drake of KS, Tracy Reeves of Ohio, and Kellie Fox of KS; her mother, Sue Gordon of MO, her granny, Leta Reeves of KS; niece, Ashlyn Bresee and great-niece Paisley Bresee both of OK,  Aunts and Uncles, Russell Wood (Jody) of MO, Clint Wood (Stacy) of MO, Michael Reed of KS, Becki Reed of MO, and Judy McGee of KS; cousins, Megan Reed, Jonathan Reed, Branden Reed and daughter Willow, Barry Wood, Brittainy Durall and children Molly and Phin all of MO.

Graveside services are pending.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Parker Mortuary.
