Carr, Jennifer

Feb. 28, 1975-Nov. 19, 2013
When a young person is taken from us far before her time it makes you wonder if the good folks on the other side needed a soul with a high fun factor to shake things up a bit. That’s certainly the case with Jennifer Lynn Johnson-Carr, 38, an awesome wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend who passed away unexpectedly at her home on Nov. 19, 2013. Jennifer was born in San Pablo on Feb. 28, 1975, and was a lifelong resident of Solano and Yolo counties. She grew up in Rio Vista and Dixon, graduating from Dixon High and UC Davis, then later obtaining her master’s in education from National University. As a passionate and tireless advocate for children, she was an outstanding science and P.E. teacher at Beamer Elementary in Woodland, where she developed and ran their after-school program. She will be remembered for her love of being with family and friends, travel, animals, gardening, community involvement and fostering children in need.
Jen will be deeply missed by her husband, Michael Carr; their children Tanner, Madison and Penelope; her mother, Marilyn (Sam); her father, G.M.J., Grandma Goose, aunt Doney, sister Kim, brother Tim and numerous extended family members and friends. The impact she has left on all that knew her will not fade with her passing, as Jen’s enormous personality will be fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure of being part of her life. The family invites you to join them in honoring Jen’s life, accomplishments and wonderful spirit at a Celebration of Life gathering at the Woodland Senior Center on from 3 to 6 p.m. Dec. 12. The family would like to thank everyone for the abundance of kindness and support they have received during this time of loss. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Jennifer Johnson-Carr Memorial Fund at First Northern Bank (Dixon and Woodland).
