She always had a biggest smile when she saw you.

It has been many years since I have seen Aunt Jennie, but I will always cherish my childhood memories at my Aunt Ceila and Uncle Al's home where I would get to see her. She treated me like her own. Always a smile, kiss and a hug. I'm deeply saddened by her passing and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of the family.

To know Jennie was to love her. In the many years I knew Jennie, I never heard her speak an unkind word.
Since our nephew, Anthony is married to her daughter, Linda we have been blessed to be around Jennie a lot at family gatherings. We always looked forward to her wonderful spaghetti dinners. No one could make sauce as good as hers.
Jennie will be missed so much by so many! RIP beautiful Jennie.
