Jennifer Springer 12/01/2018

Jennifer Springer, age 57, of Hammond, WI passed away Saturday, December 1, 2018 at her home after a long hard-fought battle with a rare form of cancer. Jennifer was born June 8, 1961 in Mooresville, North Carolina. She attended North Rowan High School, and later earned her Associates degree in Education at R.C.C. College in Salisbury, North Carolina, which was her hometown until moving to Wisconsin in 1992. After one year with the New Richmond school district, she spent the next 20 years working for the Hudson school district as a teacher’s aid for children with learning disabilities. She married Greg Springer in 1997, and they spent the past 15 years living at their country home outside of Hammond, enjoying the most spectacular sunsets. Jennifer was an avid gardener, loved reading and going on motorcycle rides. She had a lifelong love of the ocean, and a deep love for her home state of North Carolina. She loved all animals but was definitely a “cat lady”. She is preceded in death by her mother, Virginia Weaver and brother-in-law, Tim Wells. She is survived by her sister, Pat Wells; brother, Tommy Williams; father, Bobby (Priscilla) McCullough; husband, Greg Springer; and her three loving children, Phillip (Kendra) Jones, Tiffany Jones and Danielle Jones; as well as the true lights in her life, her grandchildren, Raemon, Ty, Zane, Infinity, Gage, Zoey and Desirae. A Remembrance Gathering to celebrate Jennifer’s life was held Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 2-6 pm at Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services (728 S Knowles Ave) in New Richmond with a Memory Sharing Service beginning at 5:00 pm.
Arrangements are with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services.

    Greg, we are so sorry for you and the children with the loss of Jennifer. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Jennifer had a great impact on our daughter Amanda. She said “Mrs.Springer” was one of the nicest teachers she had. She would always tell us cat stories that Jennifer told her. Carey said she always had a smile on her face, even when it was not the best of days. She will be missed by all who new her.

    Such a sweet lady and you could feel the love she had for her students, including my little boy. He was lucky to have her in his life, as were we. She sure is missed.
