  1. Jennie and my wife were good friends. My wife was the manager at Hartstrings. My wife passed in April this year and Jennie kept in touch with me. She was a beautiful person and she and Jerry became friends. She and my wife spent hours talking on thr phonr after they both retired. And, she baked the best cherry pies around, so good.
    May God bless your soul. Now you and my wife Linda can get together in Heaven and talk for all eternity.

  2. Aunt Jennie was my idol and mentor. What a loving and kind lady she was.. Always a warm smile and a positive attitude. My goal has been to become as good a cook/baker as she. Everyone looked forward to her pies. Yum! When she set the bar for working until into her 80’s, I gave up the competition. I know a grand reunion and party took place as she was greeted by Gerry and all her brothers and sisters that preceded her. Celebrate a life well lived !
