Jenny developed a love of fishing and the water as a child in Virginia and brought it to Texas with her as a young girl. She grew up in Denison and was baptized as a youth. She raised her children with their father in Pottsboro, TX. They were active as a family in scouting, attended Hagerman Baptist Church and fished whenever they could. She began her career as a volunteer at Preston Fire Department and spent more than 22 years proudly serving as a Paramedic/Firefighter with several local departments.

Jenny and Chuck fell in love and were married June 5, 2005. They loved to spoil all their grandkids and were blessed to spend lots of time with Evan who shared the same birthday as Jenny. They enjoyed eating out, lots of movies and TV, music and of course fishing. Their morning quiet time was special to Jenny and they read through the Bible this last year. They are members of Calvary Baptist Church in Denison but spent the last several years fellowshipping at the Refuge. Chuck and Jenny supported each other through several critical health scares and were an example of strength and loyalty to all who know them.

Jenny was brave, smart, funny, talented in all kinds of crafts and a little quirky at times. She knew her time was near in the last few days and would tell anyone who would listen that her God was near. She would want you to know that she trusted her future to Jesus and that you should to. She is dearly missed by all who love her. Rest with Jesus till we see you again sweet Jenny.

Celebration of life service will be held at 1:00 PM Tuesday January 19th, 2021 at Bratcher Funeral Home in Denison, Pastor Richard Hayes officiating, interment to follow at Fairview Cemetery.

This is a sign from above. I captured this in my evening sky, there was no airplane in sight.

Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I’m a former life-long agnostic. I saw the Light.

Jenny lives on in Heaven.

I met Jenny in 1991. She had a special charisma about her that was infectious but the most beautiful thing about Jenny was her huge heart. She loved and cared for the people in her life and many others like no one I’d ever known. We grew to be close friends.

Even though we hadn’t seen each other in several years, Jenny is still close to my heart in spirit.

Having had a Near Death Experience and a miraculous healing by Jesus, of spine disease and injuries, I know Jenny is up there with Him.

May all of you who had the opportunity to know and Love Jenny find peace and comfort in knowing
💫✨her spirit lives on✨💫 and you shall see her again.

I met Jenny back in 1972 when I was dating and the married her brother Tommy. I loved her kindness and laughter. She and I were always good with each other. We lost touch after a bit. The last couple of years I was going to get in touch with her but never did. I’m so sorry I waited. To her family I’m so sorry for your loss. She was a bright light when she was young and I’m sure that never changed.

Hey Aunt Jenny,
I have loved you so hard and I'm going to miss you fiercely. So many memories it's driving me crazy... face timing with you this last year. (At least I got to see you at the wedding) Playing sisters, cops and robbers, barbies, camping in the back yard, going to the lake with the girls, raising our girls together. I'm so glad we were able to be neighbors in Pottsboro. You have been a big part of my life and I don't want to let go. Damn! We were face timing one day, the next you were in the hospital. I'm angry at you for not going to the doc sooner. I want to hold Janette for you and I can't.
Amanda has loved her aunt Jenny too. ...I know your no longer in pain anymore, and I know you hurt pretty bad most days. I'm sorry for feeling sad when I know you'd want me to be happy for you. But I just can't turn it off. I can only pray. I know I will see you again some day. You promised to be by the Jordan river fishing, that's the place I expect to find you. Until then my precious Aunt. who being only 3 years older than me taught me so much. I am happy for you. You know my heart. I pray you get to read your good bye memories and writings on here. You are loved by many. Know that.
I love you Jenny.

Jenny was my sister-in-law for a long time. So sorry for your loss. She will be missed by all. I will miss playing Words With Friends with you Every Day. But, she is finally free of pain and with Our Lord and Savior. Memories are sad now but will become Happy Memories as time goes on. Wish I could be at the service but had foot surgery and getting over the Covid. Love you Janette, Michael and families. Aunt Wendy Strohl Inman
