Jenny was selfless in every sense of the word. She always put the needs of others before her own, a trait that was especially evident in her devotion to her family and grandchildren. Her love for her family was immeasurable, and she cherished spending quality time with them. Her grandchildren, Amelia, Scott, Wayne, and George, was close to her heart, and she made every effort to be a big part of their lives.
