Aunt Jenny, the most sweetest, caring aunt a person could ask for. She was always there for us. She was our angel on earth. I will miss you Auntie Jenny.

Dorothy, with the help of her husband, cared for Aunt Jan right up till the end. She felt that’s what family is for.

Aunt Jenny I always admired you because you were such an independent woman. I always loved sneaking in your bathroom and looking at your lipstick and nail polish. My funniest memory is when she cooked us pancakes one morning and Grandma Polly kept asking her why the tops kept falling off 🙂 I’m glad you are at peace, give Grandma Polly a hug for me, love you lots.

Golden Girls and chocolate shakes. My fondest memories are sleeping over by Grandma Polly and Aunt Jenny’s. They were both big fans of the Golden Girls. Before the show started Jenny would make chocolate shakes so big and rich that you ccouldn’t help but have a stomachache before you went to bed. You will be missed. RIP.

Our friendship with Jan spans over 40years during her career with Mobil Oil and Kyle-central credit unions. We have many pleasant memories of functions we attended together and how much fun Jan could be. She was fortunate to receive the loving care she did during her declining years. Her acquaintence has been our privilege. RIP Jan.

Aunt Jenny will be missed by so many people. She was my Godmother and such a special aunt. I loved our visits when you would come this way to see my mom. You always stopped at my house first. I would make you lunch and was always worried you wouldn’t like it. Monday Stew was always an easy choice because I knew you loved it! You were so kind to my husband and kids as well. My boys loved to refer to you as one of the “Little People.” I know you are having a ball in Heaven. My mom loved you so much and I KNOW she was one of the first to come and get you. Your body and mind are working 100% right now. Thank you for being a blessing in my life.

Oh Aunt Jenny, the times we shared. When I was little and shared a bedroom with you, I pretended you were my big sister. Later when I grew up I realized you were more a second mom. I remember how touched you were when I remebered you on Mother’s Day. You taught me to sew, crochet, knit and you liked make-up and jewelry just like me. You helped me with my typing by going to work after hours so I could practice on the electric type writers. I didn’t get the typing job but you would be proud to know I can type real fast with my pointer fingers. Aunt Jenny you were very instrumental in my first real job. I worked with you at Mobil Oil in Milwaukee and we got to ride to and from work together. You taught me having fun was important and together we shared many fun outings. We both loved to shop together, I was her companion on many trips to see her Sister, Aunt Pat. I can not remember you ever saying no when I would ask you to fix a sewing mistake, borrow your car, use your make-up or nail polish when i couldn’t afford my own. Even when I asked to borrow one of your treasured hats to wear on Easter you did not hesitate and said yes. I was always amazed how you would stuff your feet into endless pairs of pointed toed high heels and would often wonder why you would do that crunching thing to your toes. God answered my confusion by giving me those short fat toes and I now understand. Auntie Jenny, when I get sad because you are gone I will remember your smile, your giggle and all the silly things we did together. I will hold our precious memories in my heart, next to Grandma Polly’s, and smile through the tears. Thanks for your unconditional love.
PS. Everyone said you would be late to your own funeral, well you fooled them all!
