On July 3, 2021 our Heavenly Father welcomed home Jennifer Anne Crain Aitken. She passed away peacefully in her home in Corpus Christi, Texas. Jennifer was born on December 2, 1965, in Jackson, Mississippi to Edward Clayton Crain and Ruby Lucille Bonner Crain. She attended Clinton High School where she made lifelong friends and was a standout cheerleader. Following her high school graduation in 1983, Jennifer moved to Starkville, Mississippi where she began her post-secondary education at Mississippi State University. In 1987 she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology making her a Mississippi State bulldog and Kappa Delta sorority member forever.
Jennifer began her family in Corpus Christi with the birth of her two sons, Alexander and Avery. They were her greatest source of pride and joy and perpetual lights in her life. She resumed her studies at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi, earning her Masters in Counseling in 2012. After obtaining her license as a professional counselor, Jennifer worked in the mental health field. A natural fit for this career, Jennifer guided and touched so many lives.
Jennifer was preceded in death by her parents and half- brother, Gale Nicholson. She is survived by her two sons, Alexander Edward Aitken and Avery Crain Aitken, of Corpus Christi, Texas.
