  • Stanley & Lisa
    I am so sorry about your Mother. She was indeed a special lady. We shared some wonderful times together, teaching Sunday school, working in the kitchen, traveling to Louisville, Our birthday dinner, etc. She will be missed. May you find comfort in knowing where she is going.

  • Stanley and family
    Sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. She will definitely be missed. I will never forget her cheerful demeanor and her dedication to the church or the few times we visited her at her home. Praying for you all.

  • To our family. She will be missed by all. We will meet her and Sam in Heaven one of these days. Frank will miss her much because it took 10 years to get a full hug from her. Barbara looked up to her sister and will miss her terribly. We have visited her each year we come back East,20 plus years. We enjoyed cooking for her and leaving small plastic containers filled with Home made Veg soup, spaghetti sauce and others. She always said this will last me at least 6 months or more. There isn’t much more to say except WE loved her very much and will miss her. I wished I would have taped some of our calls, there were a lot of them until she became ill and could not say much. Jenny our love to you. Barbie and Frank. Rest in Peace.

  • My sincere condolences to and from the families, though were thousands of miles away. My love for aunt jenny, will forever be in my heart. Forever loved and sadly missed…

  • I’m saddened at the loss of my Aunt Jenny. I can remember staying with her, my Uncle Sam and Stanley Dean in the summer. She always picked fresh rhubarb from the side of the house and I still think of her today every time I see it. I’m not sure I’ve met another more genuine, loving, caring, spiritual woman in this world. And although the world has lost such a wonderful person, heaven has gained the perfect angel. Love you and you’ll always be in our hearts and prayers.

  • I will miss my Aunt Jenny very much. We have a lot of memories of her but the one that I am most grateful for was the day she took me to church, I was 10 years old and on that day I accepted Jesus into my heart. She influenced a lot of people’s lives. She loved, I mean loved The Lord and her family so very much. To The family we hold you up in prayer. God will give us all the strength we need.

  • It was almost 50 years I spent 2 weeks in the summer at Aunt Jenny’s farm in Steam Corners. How time has passed since the 1st time she taught me to make chicken and noodles. The memories are many, the heart filled with joy knowing she will reside in the house of the Lord. We will miss you here but know we will see you there.
