Heartfelt Sympathy To Bill,Darren,Brian and Sandy.
Good memories of a wonderful friend. She was a kind caring person.
I first met Jennie when we were volunteering at elementary school. She was terrific Mom who was never too busy to participate in her
sons activities. We spent many afternoons on a fishing bank talking waiting for our youngest to "catch the big one!" She was always up for some shopping, new places to lunch or going to a paint-ball store! Jenny was fun,kind,caring friend. Family was always first. I cherished her dearly. Rita and family.

I often remember the day that Jennie came over to help me when we moved into our home. It had been a difficult time and after having our home furniture and boxes in storage for 3 years, the unpacking seemed overwhelming. She arrived and we had a special time having lunch together and unpacking boxes. It was a time I will always remember with love and appreciation. She was battling physical problems, yet she came and helped me. She genuinely put her challenges aside and devoted her thought and energies to helping me. We accomplished so much and at the end of that day I felt energized and ready to finish. I will always treasure that time with her. Ted and I send our love and support to Jennie's family now.

So sad to hear of Jennie’s passing. We were looking forward to summer and spending time with she and Bill at the lake. RIP Jennie and worry not. We’ll keep an eye on Bill and the boys.

When I met Jennie for the first time, I thought she was the most beautiful lady. She had a quiet gracefulness about her. I came to realize , that from some things in our lives, we had a lot in common. She taught me how to make the best green beans and bacon. She could make a paddle ride a great memory. I thought it so sweet when she would shake her head and giggle when Bill would be doing something...well, “Bill”.“ I only wish I could have come into the “State Park Gang” circle of lifelong friends sooner. She was an Angel on Earth. Heaven has gained the best.

Even though I did not know Jennie that well, I know
she will truly be missed by Bill and the boys. My sympathy is with the family for their loss.
