Jennifer Lee Basham, 66, of Elliston, passed away on Tuesday, August 31, 2021. Jennifer was born August 25, 1955, in West Virginia. She is preceded in death by her husband, David Basham; father, Eugene Shelton; and 2 sisters, Penny Arrington and Cathy Styers.

Jennifer is survived by her two sons, Ben (wife Brandy) and Josh Basham; grandchildren Ashley and Blake Basham; mother, Virginia Shelton; sisters Patty Boyd (husband Ronnie), Jewel Miller (husband Ken), Donna Criss (husband Jimmy), and Terri Ford; brothers Eddie (wife Marsha), Christopher (wife Jennifer), and Richard Shelton; and many other family members who loved her dearly.

Jennifer enjoyed spending time with her family and when the grandkids would come over for a visit. She introduced them to scary movies, which they still enjoy watching. She enjoyed crocheting when she could and always made a baby blanket for anyone who was expecting a little one. She will be missed greatly by her family and all who were close to her.

Visitation will be held by the family on Saturday, September 4, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Horne Funeral Home in Christiansburg, VA, and we will be gathering at Jennifer’s home afterward for anyone who wants to join us.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to a cancer foundation of your choice or your local animal shelter.
