Obituary for Jennifer Lanae Veith

On December 12, 2020 heaven welcomed home a warrior, Jennifer Lanae Chase Veith. Born on November 23, 1980, she was proud to call Bakersfield home. Upon graduation from Ridgeview High School, she attended Cascade Christian College in Oregon, graduating with an associate degree from Bakersfield College. As a Registered Nurse, Jennifer found her calling. Working most of her career at Memorial Hospital, and later as a Home Health nurse. Her quick mind and gentle nature left a lasting impression on those she worked with and those she cared for.
Jennifer was most proud of being a wife and Mother. In what she described as the perfect wedding; she married Shawn K. Veith on September 18, 2004. Their family would be blessed on August 4, 2005 by Katelynn Jeanne, and again on February 22, 2007 with Courtney Rae. Jennifer cherished her daughters and dedicated her strength and passion to being their Mom.
Christ was the foundation of Jennifer’s heart, a baptized believer she faithfully served the Church of Christ her entire life. She loved attending women’s retreats, being camp Nurse for YBC, youth rallies, and serving in the nursery.
Disneyland was her happy place, there was nothing she loved more than a quick trip to the Magic Kingdom. No matter where she was, she knew exactly how long it would take to get there. She believed the Electric Light Parade was just for her.
