Obituary for Jennifer Lynn Winkler

Jennifer Winkler, 57, passed away early in the morning of January 15, 2019. Hers was a life of joy, theater, arts, children, friends, and family. She was a performer, a teacher, a non-certified life coach, a mentor, a musician, a comedian, an animal lover, an activist, always the host of the party, always the life of the party, always bringing people together. She was a non-certified critic, a humanitarian, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a friend. She didn’t know a stranger. Her adventurous life led her to all ends of the earth starting with community theater from the west coast to the east coast; on to Crystal Cruises as lead vocalist travelling all over the South Seas; to a professional tour as Evita (her favorite role); to New York for a time; then back to California where she established JW Studios giving voice and piano lessons; but she gave more than music lessons – she focused on helping them to be the best human that they could be. She was always giving back. Along with all of this, she performed as a professional Christmas caroler, for nearly 30 years – never missing a Christmas season. Though teaching was her primary business, recently she began an independent “little side gig” with Rodan & Fields, where she excelled and brought others with her to share her success. We will all miss Jennifer – she was everyone’s BFF!

My life changed for the better the day you came into my life. I can’t imagine life without you. You have been so much of my world for so long. Words will never be able to express the abundance of this loss. I love you & miss you.

My heart is heavy with the news of Jenny's untimely passing. Although I haven't seen her in 40 years, my memories of her are vivid. We became closest in our Jr. & Sr. years in high school. We had many personal conversations in which she spoke honestly and openly about herself. As the most popular girl in class, she wasn't able to do this with her "peers". It's wonderful to know she fulfilled many of her dreams. I know her heart so I know she will be missed by all who knew her. I would say rest now but we know you won't. I'm sure the Lord has plenty of good work for you. Please introduce yourself to my daughter. You will love her and she you. You will stay in my thoughts always.

Jennifer was my piano teacher but she also became a friend. She generously took on the challenge of my very late start at lessons and always treated me with kindness, patience, and compassion. I looked forward to our lessons not only for the excellent instruction and encouragement she gave, but also for her constant smile, bright personality, laughter, and conversation. I found out about her death today when I arrived at her house for my lesson. I am so sorry I did not know in time for the funeral. She is greatly missed.

My condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain, suffering and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
