With great sorrow, Matthew Richman and the Carlson family announce the passing of Jennifer Dawn (Carlson) Richman, beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, daughter-in-law, and friend. 
With enormous gratitude, we celebrate Jenn’s life. Though her final hours were tragic, the 34 years preceding were an exceptional example of how one woman’s love, dedication and enjoyment of family, friends and career can affect so many people. Her spirit lives on in our hearts and in the son who is her great and final gift to us.
Jenn delivered her firstborn child, a healthy boy, Kipp, on the afternoon of June 4th. Mother and son spent some joyous time together before complications developed. Before dawn on Friday June 7th, Jenn, as beautiful as ever and surrounded by her closest family, passed peacefully. 
Born in Taber, Alberta, Jenn grew up with her brother Lee and sister Jessica on a ranch in a valley along the Old Man River run by her parents Art and Judy and her grandparents Helmer and Marjorie Carlson. She went to Hays elementary and middle school and graduated from Vauxhall High School.
A life in the country and a love of the land defined Jenn’s passions. She graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Conservation Sciences from the University of Alberta, where she first met Matthew and a circle of friends with whom she remained close throughout her life.
Jenn worked as a Rangeland specialist at the Public Lands Division in Lethbridge, and travelled widely throughout the province conducting grasslands research, especially focusing on the sustainability of native species. She greatly enjoyed her work and was widely respected by colleagues, farmers and ranchers. 
Matthew and Jenn married May 23rd, 2009 in an outdoor ceremony at Waterton Lakes National Park, soon after they established a home just south of Lethbridge. She and Matt had many great adventures together both in southern Alberta and abroad. 
We will miss Jenn greatly and remember her well.
Jenn is survived by her son Kipp Richman, husband Matthew Richman; her parents Arthur and Judith Carlson; her brother Lee Carlson; and sister Jessica Geerligs and family Vince, RaeLeigh and Mattais.
