Jennifer Deaven

Wisconsin United States
(b. 1966 - d. 2011)

Jennifer Corkill Deaven was born in 1966 in Tripoli, Libya. Her parents returned to the USA in 1971. Jennifer grew up in New York and Ohio. She moved to Texas where she received a bachelor's degree in Physics from Rice University in 1988. In 1993, she received her doctorate in Physics from the University of California, Berkley where she met her husband. She was an engineer with a healthcare company when she returned to work in 2010 after an 11 year period of raising her children and volunteering in her community. LLL Leader Wendy Copeland wrote: "It is with sad news that I must tell you that one of our sisters in motherhood and a retired Leader has passed away. Jennifer Deaven was 44 years old. She was a wife to Dave and mother of two children ages 10 and 12. Jennifer was an LLL Leader for several years with the Waukesha, Wisconsin LLL Group meetings. I remember Jennifer as a new mother and the joy she found in her baby by mothering through breastfeeding. As her children grew, she continued her La Leche League-style parenting in all areas of her life, including feeding her family nutritious, organic fruit and produce. Jennifer was the picture of health and her passing has caught everyone off-guard."
