Obituary of Jennifer Powley
Please share a memory of Jennifer to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
It is with hearts full of sadness and tremendous love that Jen's family shares news of her passing on September 17, 2023 in Halifax, NS. Born in Vegreville, AB, Jen left this world surrounded by love, which is how she lived her life. She was 45. Jen is affectionately remembered by the love of her life and partner Thomas Elliott; her parents Barbara Morris (Joseph Moyneur) and William Powley; sister Nicole (Danny) Dodds, nieces Madelyn and Elyse; Candice (Matt) Laws, nephews Logan and Parker; James (Kristi) Morris, Evan and Brieanna; Annette (Dan) Preuss, Tanner and Daniel; Corinne (Richard) Nairn, Sydney and Bayleigh; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and countless friends, many of whom she considered family. She was pre-deceased by her devoted stepfather James Morris. Jen will be remembered for being irrepressible, living life to the fullest, and encouraging others to do the same. She was an advocate, a mentor and a student. Her commitment to community, persistence, resilience, humanity, tenacity, witty sense of humour and authenticity are an inspiration to many. Jen will be greatly missed by her family and friends. The family would like to express sincere gratitude to the staff at Halifax Infirmary and Nova Scotia Rehabilitation Centre for their kindness and conscientious care during Jen's journey with MS. A heartfelt thank you to the devoted friends, colleagues and assistants who have supported Jen over the years and especially in her final days.
