Jennifer Lee Whitesides
Jennifer Lee (White) Whitesides, age 39, suddenly passed away 59 days short of her 40th birthday on Saturday, August 27, 2016, in Cherokee Oklahoma, while at home spending time with her cherished family.

Jennifer was born October 25, 1976 in San Luis Obispo, California to Bradley White and Judy (Davies) Troili. She grew up in Paso Robles, California, where she graduated high school. In 2006, Jennifer packed up her bags and started east, finding her new home in Oklahoma, where she met and married the love of her life Marvin Whitesides on March 13, 2008. They settled down in Cherokee Oklahoma to raise her family, where she eventually found the career of her dreams and took pride working as a meat cutter at the United Market.

Jennifer is survived by her spouse and soul mate Marvin Whitesides; three beloved children, two sons, Ethan Wilson(18), Eli Whitesides(7) and daughter, Evangelina Whitesides(12). She is also survived by her parents, Bradley White, Judy (Davies) Troili and older brother, Dusty White, not to mention many more close friends and family whose lives she touched.

Her wonderful spirit, joy and passion will be celebrated at a 10:00 a.m. funeral service on September 1, 2016 at Lanman Funeral Home on 1305 S. Grand Ave. in Cherokee.

She will be greatly missed and so fondly remembered by her friends and family.

We were so shocked and saddened to learn of Jennifer\'s passing. We\'ve known her since she was a little girl, and watched her grow into a beautiful woman. Although she lived across the country, we kept in touch via Facebook. Our hearts are broken, and we send extra love to Judy, Dusty and the rest of her family. She will be greatly missed...
