JENNIFER DAWN BARNHILL, 44, born in Wilmington, went to her heavenly home on July 16, 2020 to be with her Lord and Savior.
Jennifer leaves behind her most trusted friend, her loving and caring mother, Vera. Jennifer was preceded in death by her loving father, Thomas Hamilton Barnhill, Sr. Jennifer also leaves behind her loving big brother, Thomas Hamilton Barnhill, Jr. whom she loved deeply and defended him always. Jennifer will be missed greatly by those that loved her and those that she loved.

Jennifer graduated from New Hanover High School in 1994 and Miller Motte College in 1996, receiving a degree as a Certified Medical Assistant.
Jennifer had a great love for reading and soaking up the sun at our local beaches. Jennifer loved the outdoors and being surrounded by her friends with whom she shared so many memories. Jennifer was always helpful to everyone. She had a special connection and love for the elderly. She loved animals and never wanted them to be mistreated.

Jennifer leaves behind a host of relatives that include Aunt Cindy who will have a special place in her heart for Jennifer, her Uncle Irving (Nancy) that always gave her a hard time and Aunt Linda, who will always love her for being true to herself.

Jennifer was such a caring person …. .if only everyone could have known her the way her family knew her.

    So sorry for your loss. It has been decades since I have been in Jennifer’s life but our memories date back to childhood in the early 80’s. Praying for peace and healing for the family.
