Jenny was married to the love of her life for 53 years and missed him dearly when he passed in 2014. She was very proud of her family, especially her grandkids. Jenny was always the life of the party and loved to dance. She had an opinion about everything. She had the biggest heart, a great sense of humor and was always making us laugh. Jenny was tough and stubborn, even in her last days, you couldn't tell her what to do. Jenny has always been a fighter and she continued to fight to the very end.
