Play Tribute Movie

Jennie Ward, 52, of Fairburn, Georgia (previously of Framingham, MA), passed away on January 1, 2020.

Jennie was born in Massachusetts to Faith and Dorance Ward on March 16, 1967. She went to school at Keefe Technical School in Framingham, MA. Later, Jennie moved to the Atlanta, GA area where her mother then resided. She always considered Massachusetts home too, and continued to stay connected with her many friends there.

Jennie was a deeply devoted daughter, attending to and caring for her mother over the years she was ill. Jennie was all about people, and cared deeply about her family and friends. She always had a great sense of humor and a strong point of view. Loyal, with a beautiful and kind heart is how those close to Jennie describe her. "Grateful", said one of her last social media posts, and Jennie was truly grateful for the outpouring of support from so many as she fought to be well.

Left to cherish her memory are her sister Linda, and many dear cousins, aunts, and friends. She is also survived by her goddaughter Brianna Hutchens; her godson Stephen Harper; and friends Michael Harper and Lisa Roddy, who provided so much care during her illness.

We will all miss Jennie very much.

Jennie is preceded in death by her Father, Dorance Ward, and her mother, Faith Ward.

A memory I had of Jenny was when she was in one of my classes freshman year at Keefe Tech high school and she carried this cassette radio player that I liked and bought one myself and had it for so many years because I kept it in good condition. I just remember her being sweet even though I didn't know her that well...sorry to hear of her passing. My condolences to her family and relatives....

Jennie had made so much progress and seemed To be getting healthy. I was shocked by her death. Here is a photo of us on December 11, 2019 at the Chick-fil-A dwarf house in Hapeville where we went as kids. Who knew it would be our last selfie together.
We shared struggles, victories and giggles together. Rest In Peace my sweet cousin.
