Jennifer Joiner Barlow
Matthews, GA – Jennifer Joan Joiner Barlow, 41, loving wife of 23 yrs to Marc Barlow, entered into rest Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at her residence. Funeral services will be held at 2:00PM on Saturday, December 22, 2012 in the James Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Tony Key officiating. Interment will follow in the Barlow Family Cemetery.
Born to Katie Wilson Joiner and the late Odell Joiner, Jennifer was a lifelong resident of Jefferson County. Described as “spunky”, she was full of life, always wanting to try different things. She loved being outdoors—by the pool or at the beach, she loved to feel the sun on her skin. Her favorite pastime was going 4-wheeling; favorite flower, the rose; and favorite color, purple. Music was important to her—she was always singing and dancing. A dedicated wife and mother, Jennifer loved her family passionately. Her infectious smile and laughter will be forever missed.
Other survivors include her daughters, Amanda Ann Barlow-Magner (Robert) and Alexis Nicole Barlow; and her brother, Randy Joiner (Nancy). Pallbearers will be Tony Barlow, Jeremiah Bozeman, Casey Bridges, Tyler Bridges, Trey Fowler, Robert Magner, Scotty Prickett, and Lee Sidener.
If Tears Could Build A Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
And thoughts a memory lane,
I’d walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say “goody-bye”.
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.
My heart’s still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But now I know you want us
To mourn you no more.
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store.
Since you’ll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you’ll always stay.
