IVOR – Francesca Nichole “Niki” Jernigan, 47, passed away Sept. 21, 2022 in her home.

Niki was a dog groomer and had a passion for animals, as she owned her own grooming business for many years. She loved her family, especially her “J-Boys.” She spent her free time outside in her garden, at the beach or making arts and crafts.

She is survived by her two sons, Bradley Jernigan and Nicholas Jernigan; her mother, Jane Davis Smith; her sister, Ginger Thornton, several brothers and several nieces and nephews.

A gathering of friends and family will be Saturday, Sept. 24 from 1 – 3 p.m. at 31099 Country Club Road in Franklin. The family suggests that memorial donations be made to your local animal shelter.
