Jennifer was born in Farmington, Maine on June 20, 1962, a daughter of Roger and Mary L. (Whitworth) Wing. Raised and educated primarily in Maine, Jennifer was a bright student and a talented skier.

Jennifer married in Kennebunkport, Maine on June 20, 1988. She lived in both Ohio and Texas before settling in Concord, Massachusetts where she was a devoted and loving mother to her two children.
Though she settled in Massachusetts, Jennifer always considered herself a proud Mainer.

She often spoke fondly of those summers spent harvesting blueberries in Farmington. Jennifer also had a special affinity for dogs, nature, and wildlife. She was a dedicated conservationist who cared passionately about the health of the planet.
Jennifer is survived by her parents, Roger Wing and Mary L. Walsh; her children, Rachel Wing Ehlers and Ian Whitworth Ehlers; her brother, Bruce Wing; her sister, Katherine Wing, and her former husband, John M. Ehlers.
