Jennifer Anne Dangerfield

February 13, 1947 — February 3, 2022

Jennifer passed away gracefully on 3rd February 2022 at the age of 74 years old after a courageous battle with endometrial cancer. She is survived by her two daughters Lisa and Bonnie (Steven) and six grandchildren Shelby (Sean), Katie, Alex, Aaron, Paige and Sebastian. Jen was the dearly beloved sister of Ken and Robin and loving aunt to Aubrey (Carleen), Renee (Brad), Gabriel and Carmon (James). She will be also be deeply missed by her many good friends.

Born in Lethbridge AB in 1947 Jen spent her early years in Coutts AB near where her Father’s family farm is located. She lived there until 1954 when they moved to Edmonton AB. It was here as a 9 year old girl that she met her life-long friend Wendy Holland (nee Smith). Married to Michael Crichton in 1969 they welcomed Lisa in 1972 and Bonnie in 1975 and shortly thereafter moved to Calgary. Jen immediately felt that Calgary was home and lived there for the rest of her life. After their separation in 1978 she raised her daughters as a single mother. In 1980 Jen started work with the Canadian Government where she worked in various departments (energy, mines and resources, GST) until her retirement in 2006. This is where she met her dear friend Leslie Kolisnyk who has spent many hours walking and sharing adjacent cars during lockdown.

Despite the hardships of being a single parent and struggling with her own mental health at times, she was a caring, supportive mother. She loved the outdoors and took her daughters X-country skiing, hiking and on road trips to visit family whenever she could. During this time she bought her own home where she loved to garden. Jen found ballroom dancing in the 1990s and, along with her dear friend the late Dorothy Redick, she was known to tear up the town with her Cha Cha Cha. Jennifer moved to the Somerset Legacy 50+ complex in 2011 where she met many wonderful friends. She loved being part of groups such as singing, film nights and exercise classes.

In recent years she joined the Church of Latter Day Saints following in the tradition of her brother Robin and her dear deceased parents Ralph and Joan Dangerfield. In the LDS church she found a supportive community and renewed faith and peace.

Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she took every opportunity to care for them, play with them or drive them where they needed to go and always supported them unreservedly. In one of her last conversations she described each and everyone one of them as a ‘shining star’ in their own right.

A Celebration of Jennifer’s Life will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-Sundance Chapel (100 Sunpark Dr. SE, Calgary, AB) on Tuesday, February 15th, 2022 at 2:00pm with a viewing prior starting at 12:00pm. As per Jennifer’s request, please wear bright colorful clothing to her funeral service.
