Jennifer Lynn
Jennifer Lynn Oswald, 45 years old, died in her home on Monday, July 18, 2016. Jennifer was born to Joan Wittenmyer Oswald and Charles Oswald. She was diagnosed with diabetes at age 7 and began her lifelong battle with health issues leading to a pancreas and kidney transplant. She was happiest in a rocking chair with a baby in her arms. Her tenacity and will to survive is a testament to her unconditional love for her son, Tyler. She fought for each day because she knew her job as a mom depended on it.
Jennifer was greeted into the arms of her mother, Joan and her daughter, Precious.
She is survived by her son, Tyler Wittel and his father, Bob; siblings, Theresa (Don) Ahrens, Julie (John) Abbey, Chuck (Deborah) Oswald, Bonnie Oswald, John (Nadia) Oswald; grandmother, Thelma Cyigon; nieces and nephews, Sarah, Kaitlan, Bailey, Jessica, Jack and Sophia.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
Friends may visit at the Coyle Funeral Home on Thursday, July 21, from 4-6 p.m. Interment will be private. Please view Jennifer’s memorial video tribute and leave a condolence message at
