After many years of living with enormous amounts of pain, Jennifer Marie Knapczyk (nee Meyer) “Jenni” passed away quietly on 21 December, 2021. She now is in God’s kingdom and enjoying the miracle of pain free eternal life. Beloved wife for 23 years of Brian D. Knapczyk; Daughter of Robert and Mary Jane Meyer: Devoted mother of Corey A. Meyer and step mother of Gina (Pete) M. Johnson (nee Knapczyk). Beloved sister to: Stephen (the late Teresa) Meyer, Martha (Kirk) Hessler, Glennon Meyer, and the late Thomas (surviving Shirley) Meyer and Mary Gerard Meyer. Dear Aunt, Cousin and Friend.
Although Jenni’s life ended far too soon, she lived every day with passion and love. She was a “hugger” and would brighten everybody’s day with her good spirits and huge loving heart. She always loved to be warm and near the ocean so Jenni and Brian relocated from St. Louis to Florida in 2018 and made many trips to the local beaches. Jenni was an incredible person in many ways, always helping and comforting others even though she was in great physical pain herself. She lived every day in pain to be with and to support her family. Every day she would say, “ I don’t like pain, pain hurts” to try and make light of the situation.
She was an inspiration to many and instilled the importance of living every single day to its fullest. She will be missed. Services will be private.
