Jennifer Adrienne (Davis) Golden
Jennifer Adrienne (Davis) Golden went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on October 9, 2020 at the age of 48. Jennifer was born on March 16,1972 in Kansas City, Missouri. Jenny grew up with her sister, Christina Brown, in a small town in Washington State called Black Diamond. She loved to ride bikes, hang out with childhood friends and make forts with her sister. She also practiced the flute and learned it easily and she would prepare diligently for spelling bees that she won. Jenny grew up and moved to Kansas where she had two beautiful children, a son named Caleb and a daughter named Brittany.
She married her husband, Barry Golden, in a beautiful ceremony on November 16, 2002. Jenny loved to cheer on the Chiefs and the Royals with Barry by her side, and they both enjoyed playing cards and games with their friends. Jenny loved to take vacations, she read books voraciously and also enjoyed her TV shows. Jenny made many good memories with her family while going on cruises together and talking on the phone for hours at a time. She enjoyed shopping trips with her mom, Victoria Gough, and sister and she always thought about purchasing gifts for others instead of herself. She greatly missed her father (John Davis) and grandfather (Robert Kirk) who both passed away in 2015 and spoke of them often.
Jenny graduated from Brown Mackie College in 2012 with a Medical Assistant Associate Degree and was at the top of her class with honors. Jenny became ill at a young age in life and was not able to use her degree, but she was a true HERO in that she wanted her organs to be donated to save lives. In this selfless act, she helped seven people that she never knew. Jenny had a deep love for her family and children and always showed it by reaching out to them. She talked three times a week to her daughter Brittany on the phone. Most importantly, Jenny loved the Lord and is with Him now with no more sorrow or pain. Her family will miss her deeply until we meet again.
She passed on into glory before her husband (Barry Golden), her mother and step-father (Victoria and Ron Gough), her sister and brother-in-law (Christina and Gregg Brown), her daughter and son, (Brittany Knopf and Caleb Gabauer), her father and mother-in-law (Larry and Sandee Golden), her beloved nieces and nephews (Cherisse Conover, Ryan McCormick, Shaundra Brown, Jayce Brown), and many other family and friends.
A memorial service will be held on November 21, 2020 from 10 AM to 12 PM. at Coventry Estates Baptist Church, 17133 E 39th St S., Independence, MO 64055.
