Jennifer Leigh Falk, age 36, of Menominee and formerly of Gaylord, passed away on February 9, 2018.
Jenni, daughter of Troy and Judy Falk of Elmira, was born in Petoskey on March 27, 1981. She was a 1999 graduate of Gaylord St. Mary’s. Jenni was an avid animal lover, in particular, her horses and dogs. Jenni could often be found at the Otsego County Fairgrounds showing horses, helping out in the animal barns, and volunteering at numerous other activities. An accomplished rider, Jenni passed on her knowledge to many people. She had a knack for working with children and difficult horses. Besides riding and working her dogs, Jenni loved the outdoors and spent many hours fishing. Her daughter, Addyson was the love of her life and changed Jenni’s world for the better. So much of Jenni can be seen in Addyson and she will live on through her daughter.
Jenni is survived by her daughter, Addyson; her parents; grandparents, Charles and Judy Falk, and James Boron; aunts and uncles, Toby Falk, Lisa (Nick) Lee, Tricia (Jeff) Wegmeyer, Andy (Melissa) Falk; cousins; significant other, Terry Perry; beloved dogs, Twig and Mayvis; and many friends who will miss her dearly. She will be remembered as a generous, fun-loving, big-hearted free spirit who brought many adventures to all that surrounded her.
She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Susan Boron.
