July 22, 1910 – April 25, 2012
Jennie was born on July 22, 1910 in Patton, Pennsylvania to Epiphano and Josephipa Porrovecchio.
At age 15, Jennie left home in Barnesboro to live with her Grandmother and Aunt. With the help of her Aunt Angie, she was soon employed by Century Ribbon Mill. In 1928 family and friends introduced her to Baldassara Lombardo from Detroit. They fell in love and married January 12, 1929. They made their home in Detroit and shortly after they were blessed with two children, Vincent “Jim” and Mary.
In 1946 they moved from Detroit to California and enjoyed a wonderful life together filled with a large family and many friends.
Jennie was vivacious and loved life. She saw the positive in all things and nothing was ever too large for her! We celebrate that she is home with our Lord. She will be deeply missed. Jennie is survived by her two children, Vincent Lombardo and wife, Claire, and Mary Asaro and husband, Nick, her 9 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and 11 great-great grandchildren, with 2 more on the way. Viewing will be Friday, May 4, from 4 to 8 with Rosary at 6:30pm at Goodbody Mortuary. The Funeral Mass is set for Saturday, May 5 at 11 am at Holy Cross Chapel.

Your mom was someone we loved hearing you talk about, Vince. And her meatballs will live in our memory forever! We hope you will be comforted by the thoughts and prayers of everyone who loved her and who care so much for you and your entire Lombardo family.
