Obituary of Jennifer Lynn Marlowe

Jennifer Lynn Marlowe was born on august 16,1970 in Fresno California and later moved to Phoenix AZ.

  It is with profound grief and sadness, we announce that Jen passed away at Banner University Hospital on January 17, 2024 at 1:59 am. due to Pneumonia, Cardiogenic shock and a weakened disposition from Kidney failure and bouts of Chemotherapy and radiation over the past three years had weakened her immune systems. She was in remission from the Cancer she had but the added shock was too great for her body and she expired.


   Jen possessed peace, bravery, authenticity, compassion, patience , a strong work ethic, and above all, joy, which was unfazed by her previous cancer diagnosis and the onslaught of complications that followed. She taught me to love desperately, unconditionally, intimately and to savor every moment. She was uniquely contented by the happenstance and delighted in collecting and restoring relics of bygone eras. Those who knew and loved her were equally thrilled just to be by her side on her adventures. She was an artistic soul and would create something inspired out of nothing. She found euphoria in Bashas cream filled doughnuts, painting, drawing, crafting flowers and trinkets out of shells and sea glass, and a warm chocolate chip cookie at sunset on the beach with her husband after a long day of snorkeling and hunting for shark teeth on our annual trips to Florida.


     She loved Rammstein and Swedish House Mafia," don't worry child", the perfect cup of coffee, bacon, Kerry Gold butter, all things retro, antique clocks, vintage sparkly purses, remnants of classic films,  and especially the Atomic Age of Art Deco and her trusty side step Toyota pickup truck. She loved the Golden girls and every furry animal she ever met.  We keep her cradled in our hearts and find some comfort in the memories and mementos she leaves behind.


Lighting the way to her place among the stars are her beloved Mother, Sharon Kay and furry friends Pumba, Moo Shu and Chum Chum who preceded her in death. She leaves behind her devoted and heartbroken husband of 15 years, Donald Ross McIntyre, her best friend and comrade, in the constant search for rusty gold and all things fabulous and shiny, Tracy Dugger. Also left behind is her Nana, whom she dearly loved, Marie Bruthaiene Keele, Grandpa, James Irvy Keele, uncles James (Jimbo) and Bruce Keele, who will forever treasure their one and only Jif. Jen also had a Nephew, Joshua Keele whom she was very proud of, and a small army of friends and associates from her long career as an Engineer at Walgreens.


Jen didn't want flowers, cards or a formal service, but wished for her ashes to be sprinkled in the ocean in front of the beach house we have been going to each year for the past 15 years, which I plan to do next year. Jen asked if you must do something in remembrance of her, to please donate to any local no-kill animal shelter.


   In her honor, hold your loved one's hands tightly, screw the calories and eat a cream filled doughnut, pet a fuzzy dog or cat and to be on the lookout for something old and shiny! We were blessed and very lucky to know her, to love her and to have her in our lives and will endlessly miss her for all of our days!
