Pope, Jennifer Kristin, age 41, died on October 27, 2014 at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor after a brief illness. Jennifer was born January 13, 1973 in Warren, Mich., to John J. and JoAnn (Beal) Pope. Her bright, energetic smile never faded throughout her life. She put her heart into everything she participated in from dance to softball to the clarinet in the precision marching band. She grew up in Troy, Mich., attended St. Hugo of the Hills and Madison Heights Bishop Foley High School. After graduating from Western Michigan University in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in travel and tourism. Jennifer set sail for adventure, first on the Mississippi River working on a riverboat. She went on to work in resorts in Beaver Creek, Colo., and Nampa, Idaho before returning to her home base in suburban Detroit. She took a job outside the travel field out of necessity but ended up staying with the mortgage industry for ten years because she found a new challenge and enjoyed her co-workers so much. She traveled extensively throughout the U.S., the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico. Jennifer is survived by her parents of Thompsonville, Mich., and Goodyear, Ariz.; her brother, Jeffrey of Las Vegas, Nevada; her grandmother, Doris Pope; her godson, Tyler; three aunts; two uncles; seven cousins; many other relatives; and more friends than can be counted. Jennifer was an avid gardener, so the family requests in lieu of sending flowers, to plant flowers, trees, vegetables or anything else that will make the world a little more beautiful. Services were held at St. Raphael Catholic Church in Copemish, Mich. She is with the angels now.
