Jennifer Lorraine Bradley, -AKA- “Mom” or “Jenny B” to most of you that knew her, passed away on June 21st 2015 in Miles City, Montana at the age of 54. Jenny was born in San Jose California and grew up in Fremont California. She was the eldest daughter of Barry E. Bradley and Darlene D. Artis. She had three brothers; Mike, Matthew and Quinton and a sister Stephanie, with whom she loved and cared about deeply.
Jenny was a free spirit in every sense of the word and always lived life on her own terms. She experienced many trials and tribulations over the years, but she was strong, always a fighter. She was a rebel at heart and loved to party and hang out with friends but most importantly she was a mom. She loved all of her children unconditionally.
Jenny was preceded in death by her mother Darlene, the man that we all knew as “Papa”, Mike McKague, Patty McKague, Ted Morrow, Randy Clouse and her old friend Jim. Jenny is survived by her father; Barry Bradley, Stepmother Florence Bradley, her siblings; Mike, Mathew & Quinton Bradley, Stephanie McKague, and stepsister Michelle Mabelle her children; Jason(Stacey) Ramirez, Joshua(Justine) Ramirez, Andrea(Ben) Recla and AJ(Sam) Gazzillo “Boogers”, her grandchildren; Braden Clauson, Anthony, Alyssa, Breanna Ramirez and Kaylee Recla.
She was a beautiful person both inside and out, always loved and took care of the lost souls that she met along the way. With all the extended family and close friends it’s simply not possible to list everyone, but know she loved you immensely. She loved cruising and jamming out to music; Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Metallica, Aerosmith, Tupac, End Ever, just to name a few. She loved to be outdoors, especially on the river fishing and swimming with friends and family.
She spent the last years of her life with her eldest son and grandkids in Miles City. She enjoyed spending her days fishing and going to her grandson’s sporting events. Even on the days when she wasn’t feeling well, she rarely missed a game…she was his biggest cheerleader! She had a unique relationship with each of her grandchildren and enjoyed her time with them. She enjoyed hours of coloring with her granddaughter Breanna, whom referred to her as “Bo Bo”. She had the love of a child in her heart which shown through with her interactions with Alyssa and a shared love of “buddies” (particularly Card Sharkie) with her other granddaughter Kaylee. Braden, her eldest grandson, shares fond memories of “staying at the trailer with buzz light-year” and “shooting people with squirt guns inside of Dairy Queen”. She was also so proud of her grandson Anthony for making the All-Stars team and could not wait to cheer him on this upcoming weekend.
Jenny was far from perfect but she always remained true to herself with no apologies. She played hard and loved even harder. She truly was one-of-a-kind and will be loved and missed by so many. Mom would not have wanted you to mourn the loss of her life, but to celebrate it. And if you were ever fortunate enough to be “eeeeeeed” by mom, you know that she loved you like her own.
