Obituary for Jennifer Lynn Morrow (Wilson)

Whitefield, Maine-
Jennifer Lynn Wilson Morrow, 38, wife to Ryan and Mother to Blake & Keegan left this world on July 24, 2022 surrounded by the love of her family and best friends. Jenn was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer after the birth of her second child. Despite the challenges she faced with this diagnosis, she was always positive and optimistic. She fought bravely to just have one more day with her family. #stage4needsmore was not only found on every social media post of her journey, but also her mission to spread awareness in hopes to help others in the future. In October of 2019, Jenn had the privilege of being the Grand Marshall for the Walk for Hope, where she proudly wore the banner that supports all the work the Alfond Center provides to cancer patients. The family wishes to thank all the staff at the Alfond Center for the outstanding care and compassion they provided Jenn.

Born in Augusta on October 15, 1983, Jenn grew up in Chelsea attending Chelsea School and graduating from Cony High School in 2002. This is where she met lifelong friends “the Goldies”; Dostie, Angela, Sarah & Katie. They were with Jenn in her final days providing care and reflecting on precious times together. Many fond memories which always had lots of laughter, including a trip to Acadia and frequent breakfast dates, where Jenn would always say “Just take the damn picture”. Jenn had a very special bond with dear friend, Beth Sproul-LeBrun after many years working together. Beth was there to help Jenn have a peaceful journey and fulfilled the promise of all Jenn’s final wishes. The family will forever be grateful for the kindness and care Beth helped provide during these difficult days.

Jenn graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with a degree in Early Childhood Education. She loved her role as “Ms. Jenn” working with the children from SKCDC-most recently Lake Region Center, City of Augusta Childcare Kindercamp and her involvement with Whitefield Elementary School. Jenn was a gifted teacher who truly was built for the teaching profession, as she help shape hundreds of children educationally and was a role model to many. Jenn had a special place in her heart for many co-workers, who also became dear friends.

Family was everything to Jenn and even though Rose was her mother, they were also best friends, spending as much time together as they could and loving deeply as each day passed. Weekends spent with her mom and sister, Amanda, were also a favorite- especially the trips to Dunkin or Starbucks along with Target & TJMaxx adventures together. Rose and Amanda were by Jenn’s side nonstop as she slowly faded from us, reminding her how amazing she was. Although Amanda was her older sister, Jenn provided constant guidance and reassurance to Amanda and was her number one supporter during the journey of motherhood and life. A bond between sisters that was so strong and will be missed immensely. Jenn loved watching her father, Cliff, be the best Papa to her boys and cherished the bond that they share. Jenn tragically lost her brother, Joshua Wilson, in a car accident in 2007. She reminded her boys that Uncle Josh was watching over them and she would soon be with Uncle Josh to watch over all of us.

Jenn leaves behind her husband, Ryan, who she loved with all her heart. In August of 2010 she wed Ryan at Saddleback in Rangeley and soon grew their beautifully family together with their sons and black labs, Owen & Max. She is forever grateful to Ryan for making her a wife and mother. Ryan taught her how a person should be loved as he never left her side during her battle with cancer. Ryan spent the final days holding her, loving on her and ensuring her final moments were filled with laughter and love. Jenn’s legacy lives on within her two beautiful sons, Blake, 11yrs and Keegan, 3yrs. Family time sharing laughs over dinner, daily walks with the boys, disc golfing or time spent “upta camp” with “her boys” were such cherished moments for her. Jenn was the most patient and supportive Mumma to her sons and told them constantly “Love you to the Moon and Back a million times, Buddy”. Blake helped care for his mother at home her final week, bringing her favorite dill pickles, Dostie’s cookies and reminding his Mom how much she was loved. Surviving Jennifer also are her parents, Cliff and Rose Wilson of Chelsea, Maine. Sister Amanda Wilson-Gray and Brother in law, Justin Gray of Gray Maine. A very special nephew, Kai Gray, who Jenn loved as her own. Kai will forever miss his “Aundin” who he loved with all his heart. Also, her paternal grandmother, Jane Wilson of Augusta, who was her loving “Grammie Jane”. Jenn had a large family and was surrounded by many Aunts, Uncles & Cousins who will miss the strongest, bravest, kindest and most stubborn person they will ever know.

The family wishes to thank everyone who stopped by, donated, bought raffles and tea or delivered food and flowers. There are too many to list and the love and kind words have meant so much to the family. Jenn left a large impact on all she met, which has been obvious by the outpouring of support from the community during this difficult time. At the request of Jenn, there will be no funeral services but a celebration of life is to be held at a later time. Her wish for all is to “Live each day as if it were your last”

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations sent to:
