Our Queen Bee has gone on to her heavenly hive that God has prepared for her. Jennifer Amanda Brown, born February 6, 1974 in Lake Charles, LA, went to meet her Savior on Monday, December 18, 2023 at just 49 years young.

Jennifer was the loving wife of John Brown, whom she enjoyed traveling with and the entertainment in her Rodeo of Life. She is the passionate mother of Lane Stanford and MacKenzie Stanford. She was also gifted with McKenzie (Landon) Cook, Cameron (Joey) Dixon, Kirby (Brandon) Boudreaux, and John Westley Middlebrooks when she married John. Her bee-utiful heart was poured out to her God, family, animals (including her favorite red heeler, Charlie Brown), community, livestock, and beekeeping. Her hard work, generosity, forward thinking, and dedication influenced many people and will have a lasting impact on our hearts and minds.

She is preceded in death by her biological father, Eugene Dripps and mother, Maxie Hauser Sonnier; step-brother, Everett Sonnier; and nephew, Quentin Habetz.

She is also survived by her adopted father, Kerney (Janice) Sonnier; brother, Jason (Alma) Dripps; sister, Julie (Paul) Habetz; sister, Jessica Sonnier. Nanny Jennyโ€™s bee-loved soul will be missed by her colony of nieces and nephews and grandchildren.

She was also a member of the American Quarter Horse Association.

A special thank you to the worker bees who generously cared for her during her medical time of need, Aunt Dana Hauser, and her friends, Staci and Jennifer.

    Jennifer IS such a loving and carrying person, and she will forever be missed on this earth but has opened her angel wings up in heaven. She always had a smile on her face and a big heart to help others and make sure that they had everything they needed at the bee conventions. I remember when she had found out that I was moving to Montana and she took the time to reach out to me to congratulate me and my family for the opportunities that God had opened for us. She will forever be missed but I know she is doing amazing things in Heaven, give my mom a huge hug for me up there please!
    God Bless,
    Kacy Cole

    I want to start by saying how lucky I was to have you as my wife. Such a warm loving, smart, caring and person of God you were. You touched so many children as well as adults with your knowledge of beekeeping. farming, livestock. Jesus and most anything on any topic. Your love was honey bees and when you had the opportunity to teach someone about bees it was right up your ally.
    I think of you all the time, like what your doing , what’s it like in heaven, was your family glad to see you and have you met my family. All the horses, dogs and cat are fine. Your going to be with the Lord is hard and was hard on the dogs, they just sat around for quite sometime waiting for you to come home, I think they understand now, we’re trying to adjust and with the Lords help and guidance we will.

    A beautiful tribute to a special person. She was taken too soon. A beautiful caring soul inside and out. Always thinking of others before herself. Jennifer will be greatly missed by all especially by the folks in the beekeeping community. Know she is at peace now. Condolences and prayers for her family.

    Sending condolences and sympathy to John and family in the transition of Jennifer. She was a special soul who loved all people. Jennifer used her bees to assist me in healing from Shingles in my face/head. She was a woman of faith and belief. Praying for comfort and peace with love.
