Obituary for Jenna Marie McKinzie

Jenna Marie McKinzie was born on January 23, 2015 in Stillwater, OK. She was born right on time and absolutely perfect. For six months she did everything a baby should do. Jenna sat up, laughed, rolled and played. Over the next year, Jenna regressed until she was diagnosed at 16 months with Tay-Sachs. That diagnosis did not stop her from being the most precious princess a family could have.
From the day Jenna was born, she was always her daddy’s princess. She held his heart and he held her through it all. They snuggled, played growling games had the most special bond. Jenna was her momma’s world. Everything Jessica did was for Jenna. Her momma sang to her everyday and made sure that her life was as beautiful as possible. She made sure that their family was intentional in making memories. Her momma and daddy dedicated themselves to finding the best care and equipment for her so that she was comfortable.

She was welcomed back into the arms of Jesus on Saturday, November 25, 2017 where she received her complete healing, and is now dancing with her Savior.

A Celebration of Jenna’s life will be held at 2PM Friday, December 1, 2017 at Sunnybrook Christian Church in Stillwater, OK. Pastor Jim Johnson will officiate. Pallbearers will be Jaxon McKinzie, Jake McKinzie, Pat Lobek, Eric Hayes, Tyler Selvey, Kenny Harwell, and Lonnie McKinzie. Interment will follow at Fairlawn Cemetery. Visitation will be 9AM to 8PM on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at Dighton-Marler Funeral Home. Family will be greeting guests from 6PM to 8PM. Funeral services have been entrusted to the care of Dighton-Marler Funeral Home in Stillwater, OK.

Jenna loved her two big brothers, Jaxon and Jake. They always got the biggest smiles and giggles from her. She loved when her brothers said her name and she was always aware of their presence. Her puppy, JoJo, understood her and loved her through everything. JoJo misses her dearly.
She was adored by her grandparents. They each had a special connection with her. Her Nana & PaPa McKinzie loved to hold and talk to her. After moving here to be with Jenna, Mimi & PawPaw Harwell cared and loved her deeply. She was the light of their lives.
