“Jem” as she is fondly called by family and friends, will always be remembered for her love for her family, and her love for singing and dancing. While she loved to sing and dance she also enjoyed reading, cooking, and traveling. In additionally, Jem truly enjoyed her Disney movies, Ariel was her favorite Disney Princess.
Jem spent the last five and a half years fighting. She was a mighty warrior (like the mighty Pink Power Ranger) to some and a trooper to others, but to all of her friends and family she was a hero.
Jem was not afraid to live life to the fullest.
Jem will be missed by all who loved her and knew her.
