Jennifer Lois Goodwin – 70, Beaver Bank, passed away peacefully, with her loving daughter, Andrea at her side, on Sunday, April 10, 2022. Born in Caledonia, Queens County, she was a daughter of the late Ranald and Modena (Frail) Baker.

After her children went out on their own, she went to work with Halifax Regional Municipality as an Administration Assistant at the LeBrun Centre in Bedford. She was a member of Knox United Church, Lower Sackville.

Over the years, Jennifer enjoyed needlepoint, tole painting and anything and everything crafty. Family was paramount to Jennifer, and she loved them with all of her being. Tea time with her granddaughter, Faith, and with others, was always a special time. She enjoyed keeping busy around the house and wanted to help out in any way that she could.
