May 12, 1965 - November 18, 2020
Jennifer Rene Godbold, our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully in Orem, Utah on November 18, 2020 surrounded by family that loved her. Jennifer was born to Robert David Godbold and Jenean Jesperson Godbold on May 12,1965, in La Mesa, California. She grew up in Lakeside, California and later lived in Yuba City, California and Orem, Utah. She received her Bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University and her Master's in Educational Counseling from National University. She was a former Sutter County Schools career advisor, counselor and trainer at Sutter County One Stop and a 1st grade teacher with Alpine School District. She also taught English to Chinese students via the Internet. She loved her mission in the Salt Lake City South, Utah mission, and served faithfully in many auxiliaries in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Jennifer had many talents including: writing poetry and songs, singing, playing the piano,and best of all being a super aunt. She loved the outdoors and traveling. She loved to help others learn and grow and especially loved seeing the satisfaction that comes from accomplishing goals. No challenge was too great, when it came to Jennifer helping others to believe in and pursue their dreams. She is survived by her parents Robert and Jenean Godbold; sister, Andrea Godbold Crockett (Nick Crockett); sister, Kerri Godbold Morris (Keith Morris); brother, Granger Godbold (Anne Abram Godbold); sister, Amanda Godbold Puffer (Ben Puffer); brother, Dayne Godbold (Sarah Hayes Godbold); brother, Jonathon Godbold (Kelley Kaufman Godbold); and many nieces and nephews who will sorely miss her. She was, and is, the unrivaled and undefeated favorite aunt to her 33 nieces and nephews. Jennifer had many health problems and trials; yet she always chose to face those trials with her eyes focused on triumph, with an unyielding positive outlook no matter the trial or diagnosis. She faced her health battles with a determination born of a faith in the Savior, fortified from birth by her loving parents and steeled in the crucible of challenge. We love you Jen, now free from pain and limitation, may you run with the angels to heights and lengths you have only dreamed about. "In life, we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else will ever fill." A private Graveside Service will be held on Monday, November 23, 2020 at the Orem City Cemetery.
