Filed under: Obituaries |

brinickPrincess of the Universe, Jennifer Irina Brinick was born in Odessa, Ukraine on September 8, 1995 with the given first name Zhenya.

She and her brother Ben came to the United States of America with Bruce, Debbie and Daniel and joined her forever Brinick/George family in April, 2002. She graduated from Life School in Red Oak and attended both SAGU and Navarro Jr. Colleges. During her brief walk on this earth, she literally filled the lives of her family and everyone she met with unexpected surprises, love, peace, joy, goodwill, hope, favor, friendship, fun, goodness, gentleness and kindness. Patience and self-control were works in progress. Her inner and outer beauty, infectious smile, quick-wit, hilarious sense of humor and almost total lack of boundaries made her completely irresistible to anyone who loved life. Her unique giggle made everyone immediately stop what they were doing, start laughing and wonder what they were missing. She had a goofball charm and joyful mischievousness that endeared her to us all. She purposefully worked on people’s nerves and then endeared them by winking, doing her trademark elbow headslap and letting them know how much she loved them. Quirky, and always smiling, she radiated love and laughter. We’re all gonna miss her. A lot.

Jenna was preceded in death by her mother, Deborah Kay Brinick, her grandparents, Betty Barbara Daniel Brinick and Steven George Brinick, her Uncle Kent Mouser and Cousin Travis George.
