Jennie absolutely put her family first in all things. She loved having her family up at Chautauqua, New York and she always had a spaghetti dinner ready for her family on Sundays and her famous salad dressing that no one could recreate. Her hobby was making ceramics for her family and friends. Each piece was made with love. She and her husband loved the song ‘Spanish Eyes.’ They loved traveling to New York City, San Francisco, Florida and especially Chautauqua, New York. She looked forward to the holidays, especially Christmas and Easter, when she made loaves of bread and her Chadones. She was a true peacemaker and extremely selfless. Jennie was an avid reader who was hospitable and giving to so many. Devoted to her family and her faith Jennie leaves behind an unforgettable legacy and so many people who love her.
