Jennifer Dawn Topp

OREGON-After a too brief but very courageous battle against cancer, Jennifer Dawn Draper-Topp lost her fight on Sunday, June 18, 2017. She passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on June 27, 1974, in Madison, at St. Mary’s Hospital. Jenny grew up in Stoughton and graduated from Stoughton High School in 1992. She married Kevin John Topp in McFarland on Sept. 5, 1998. They lived in McFarland for a short time then moved to and stayed in Oregon.

Kevin and Jenny have two wonderful children, Carson Keith (17) and Emma Ann (11). In addition to her husband, Kevin and their children, Jenny is survived by her parents, Gene and Coleen (Boomer) Draper; brother, Todd and his wife, Becky (Halverson) Draper and their two daughters, Ellie and Kacey; mother-in-law, Kathleen Innis; fathers-in-law, Keith Topp and Thomas Barbian; brother-in-law, Thomas Topp; two fur babies, Gus and Gracie; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Irvin and Catherine Boomer; paternal grandparents, Fay Draper and Laura Bouchard; cousin, Jesse Van DeWiel; uncle, Dale Anderson; and four fur babies, Rex, Tanner, Cole and Lily.

A memorial service will be held at NEW HOPE EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH, 639 S. 8th St., Mount Horeb, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 24, 2017, with a luncheon to follow. A memorial gathering will be held at the church on Thursday, June 22, 2017, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. A visitation will also be held from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service on Saturday.

Jenny would like to thank hospice nurse, Heidi Fogo for taking such good care of her and fulfilling her wish to remain at home with her loved ones. Also, Dr. Sam Lubner from the UW-Carbone Cancer Center for providing every possible treatment we could try to extend her life as much as possible.

Needless to say, we will all miss Jenny terribly but we are at peace knowing her struggle and pain are over. Her outlook on life was always positive and she never lost her sense of humor. She fought a good fight and was brave until the end. We love you, Jenny. You will be missed more than you know.
