Jennifer Adair Cerney passed too soon from this earth on April 10, 2021. Jennifer’s middle name Adair came about while her mother was pregnant and watching a show called Finders of Lost Loves staring Deborah Adair. Her mother loved the actress and the name and that is how her middle name came about. To all who knew her, she like being called “Jenn” not Jenny.
Jennifer was always the fun one, competitive one, the athletic one, and was so generous of her time, money and talents. Jenn was very mechanically inclined, artistic, and so smart. As a child, Jennifer did not want barbies, she wanted race cars and motorcycles. She was such a tomboy throughout her life. In her younger years Jenn participated in every sport from t-ball, football, soccer, little league, and in high school cross country at Brookings High School in Brookings, Oregon. Jenn loved fast-pitch softball and played centerfield. In the summer of 2002, she spent the summer maintaining trails in the Northwest Youth Corps on the Pacific Coast trail.
Jenn was not a big crowd or people person, and she formed very close relationships. Jennifer loved to talk on the phone for hours. Jenn was an over thinker. In her relationships she was always the sounding board. She had a very close and tight knit relationship with her sisters Melanie and Adrienne, and her snow sport partner MAC. She was the best landscaper and pool maintenance person for her parents Mike and June. She was an amazing person to know. You always knew where you stood with her. Jenn loved the songs Bob Marley’s – Don’t Worry About a Thing, and Don McLean’s “American Pie”
Later in life, Jenn married David Cerney in Brackettville, TX. Their daughter, Collins Adair Cerney was born in 2015. Jenn was a very loving mother and wife and always put herself last and made sure that her family was taken care of before herself. Jenn always told David, “143 – My love for you is without wax”. Jenn was an amazing fur baby mom to her cat Gucci and the two great Danes, Zoey and Flynn.
Jenn is survived by her husband David and daughter Collins of San Angelo, Texas, and son Toby Rosas of Mexico; parents, Mike and June Batty of Florence, Arizona; Surrogate father and mother whom she loved deeply, Doug and Linda Hutton of Brookings, Oregon; sisters Koni Quinn, Melanie Batty, Adrienne June Martinez, and brother MAC Batty, and several nieces and nephews.
