September 11, 1986 – August 30, 2015
Jennifer McIlvaine, 28, passed away unexpectedly August 30, 2015 at home in San Diego. Born on September 11, 1986 she was raised in Kansas City, Missouri and lived there until 2007 when she married her sweetheart Shawn. Together they moved to San Diego where Shawn was stationed at the Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar and there they made their home.
She graduated from Ruskin High School in Kansas City and also Concorde Career College where she graduated as a dental assistant in 2006. Jennifer held many jobs over the years. Most recently she worked at Kohl’s and also with the Marine Corps Community Services at the Marine Corps Exchange.
Jennifer had an adventurous spirit. Her smile could brighten any room and her laugh was so infectious it would make everyone laugh with her. She was beautiful both inside and out. Those that were blessed to know and love her will miss her deeply but will always remember her shining light.
She was a wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, friend, and so much more. She leaves behind her husband, Sgt. Shawn McIlvaine of the home. Her father, Alan Clayton of Hawthorne, Florida. Her mother, Tanis Clayton of Grandview, Missouri. Two brothers, Christopher Green of Peculiar, Missouri and Brandon Green of Lee’s Summit, Missouri and a sister, Angela Martin of Baxley, Georgia.
She leaves behind her nephews Alexander, Andrew, and Brayden Green, Dalton Martin, and nephews Colton and Crew McIlvaine. Left too are her nieces Dana Martin, Shauna Green and Adalynn McIlvaine. There is also another McIlvaine baby on the way that she will only get to see from Heaven.
Jennifer also leaves behind many uncles, aunts, and cousins who loved her. There were many family members waiting to greet her at the gates of Heaven so we take comfort knowing they are all together now and we will be with them all again someday.
Jennifer made a multitude of friends throughout her life who all had places in her heart. It is hard to sum up a life cut short. So many words could be said. But if there are any that come to mind the most they are SHE LOVED AND SHE WAS LOVED!
