Although I haven't known you for very long Aunt Jen, it was a pleasure meeting you for very first time. Hope you are at peace and your family finds comfort during this difficult time. Until we meet again on the other side, rest in peace. Your nephew, Joseph Blake.

I have many happy memories of my Aunt Jenny from family gatherings and picnics. She had quick smile, infectious laugh, and I loved her beautiful red hair. It was a wonderful celebration when the Johler's came to Buffalo for a visit. She is now at peace with my dear Uncle Fred. We will hold her memory in our hearts and our prayers. Our deepest sympathy to Roxanne, Darlene, Steve and your families.

For many years I was privileged to have known Jenny Johler and enjoyed several Christmas lunches with her and her daughter (my dear friend Darlene) when she would visit from Florida. She was an elegant sweet lady with an interesting history and will be missed. She is at peace with her beloved husband and those who love her will always have wonderful memories.
