In 2013, Jenny married her childhood sweetheart, Ed, and they created a beautiful life together, traveling, horseback riding, ministering at the church, lavishing attention on her children and grandchildren, and creating a sanctuary in their home on The Ridge.

Jenny was passionate about her family, and poured out love and wisdom on all those around her. She was a joy to be around, always radiating Christ’s love for people and for His creation. She had a heart for sharing the gospel, and you could not be around Jenny for very long without hearing about her beloved Jesus. She had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a sparkle in her eye.
