Always In Our Hearts
Jennifer Jocelyn Lomond was granted her angel wings on May 16, 2015 at the age of 38. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Jennifer had touched in some small way throughout her very memorable life.
She is the daughter of Jordan and Kathleen (Osmond) Lomond and was born in Port aux Basques, Newfoundland.
Those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives.
Her gentle smile, her caring personality and loving nature affected everyone who met her. She gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. She loved to go on adventures and spending time with her family.
Jennifer is survived by her loving parents; her Daughter Kaleigh (16), her Son Nicholas (10) and loving spouse Peter Walker, her sister Tina Lomond (David Walters) and niece Maurora Walters (5).
A memorial service will be held in Jordan Falls, NS at a later date.
Donations can be made to her surviving children, Kaleigh and Nicholas by contacting Jennifer’s mother Kathleen (Osmond) Lomond.
