Family and friends are invited to a celebration of Jennifer’s life at the graveside at Greenwood Cemetery which will be held at 2pm on Friday, June 14, 2013 with Pastor Linnea Papke-Larson officiating. Funeral Services were held on June 7th at Garber United Methodist Church in New Bern, NC. Jennifer was born November 15, 1971 in Bemidji, MN, the daughter of Richard and Colleen Lubken.

Jennifer married Eric Massie on September 29, 2001 in Bemidji, MN. Together they had three boys, Colin, Jack and Charlie. Of all the roles Jennifer had in life, daughter, sister, wife, friend, therapist, and community member, there was none she enjoyed more, or was better at, than her role as a mother. Anyone who knew Jennifer knew that of all she had accomplished in life, the thing she was most passionate about and most proud of, was her three boys.

Jennifer enjoyed reading, cooking, scrapbooking, shopping, traveling, being active, and being outdoors. She especially loved spending time with her family at the beaches of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

Jennifer was an active volunteer at Brinson Memorial Elementary School, Relay for Life, and was a member and Sunday School Teacher at Garber United Methodist Church.

Jennifer is survived by her husband, Eric of New Bern; her three sons, Colin, Jack and Charlie, all of New Bern; her parents, Richard and Colleen Lubken of Cass Lake, Minnesota; and her sister, Julie (Mark) Haugen and nephew Henry Haugen of Fargo, N.D.
