To Jenny's Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jenny was a lovely woman in every way. I worked
with her at the Board Office in Clay. She was a good Christian lady. She was a kind
and generous woman to her students and co-workers. May your many good memories
give you the love that she showed.
Love through Christ,
Mary Kathryn

What an amazing lady and an amazing legacy. She brought so much to the world with her desire to always learn and always improve. Aunt Jenny was an inspiration in the way she was always starting a new hobby or learning a new skill. She worked hard and loved her family so much. She will be missed and never forgotten. I love you, Aunt Jenny. My heart is with you Kelley and Kristen and your whole families. I can't imagine the hole you have in your heart right now but I also know you are confident that you will one day be reunited in heaven.
