Celebration of Life
Jennifer Lyn Deatherage, 38, passed away on May 19, 2022 in Kennewick, WA. She was born to Christie Clifford and Tony Deatherage on August 4, 1983 in Reno, NV. She moved to Richland at two years old and grew up in the Tri-Cities. In middle school she played a few sports but it was never her “thing”. She much preferred hanging out with friends and having a good time. Jennifer graduated from Rivers Edge High School in 2003, and was very proud of her diploma.
As an adult, Jennifer spent years in the service industry and made many friends along the way. She was everyone’s go-to person for advice or for a shoulder to cry on. Jennifer was always up for an adventure. She enjoyed the outdoors and activities like hiking, floating the river and going on mini vacations.
You could often catch Jennifer saying silly things to make those around her laugh. She was always wearing a smile and what a smile it was. Jennifer loved animals, even though she was terribly allergic. As a teenager she would often return home with itchy eyes and hives after snuggling with friends‘ pets.
An avid Seahawks fan, Jennifer will be remembered by many as a caring and fun loving person who would put herself on the back burner to make others happy.
Jennifer is survived by her father William (Bill) Clifford, sister Stephanie Clifford and nephews Guy (15) and Jayden (14). She was preceded in death by her mother Christie Clifford (Jenkins) and father Tony Deatherage. Jennifer’s family invites her friends and loved ones to join them for a funeral service at Einan’s at Sunset Funeral Home in Richland, WA on Sunday, June 5th at 1:30pm. A reception open to all will immediately follow at her father’s home.
I went to school with Jen, she was a friend of my sister… after I came back to the TC I would run across Jen and she always had something good to say, even if it was just bein goofy. I’m sorry for your families loss you were a good person.
You are one of the good ones Jen , rest easy.
Fly with the angels Jen. 💕
Will miss you so much !! Fly high angel!
Jen, so sorry to hear of your passing. We know you were a dear friend to our son John. Whenever I went to Lee’s to order food for the annual “John B” golf tournament signup, I always made sure to go when I knew you were working. Because I knew you’d pour me a free beer while we figured out the food. Rest In Peace Jen.
I met Jennifer a few years ago with her sister and ran into her now and then at the Richland Uptown. I remember her well because she had a warm energy and seemed so humble and down to earth. She had me laughing within a minute and was simply a fun and capativating soul. Our hearts our heavy for this devastating loss.
