She worked hard as a housekeeper and as a kitchen aide for 30 years at Skeenaview. Jennie assisted her husband in building and maintaining several houses in the Terrace area. She also enjoyed dancing, mushroom picking, gambling and travelling. She would spend many hours in her kitchen, garden and with her chickens.

Jennie was a loving wife, mother and friend. Her love for her family was so unconditional and devoted that we feel a deep and profound absence in our lives. One of her great loves in her life was being able provide a warm meal and a welcoming home for all of her family and friends. Everyone had praise or a kind word when they spoke of Jennie. She was one of the most beautiful and genuinely special people that you would ever meet. Services were held on February 20, 2014 at the Sacred Heart Parish followed by a luncheon at the Elk’s Hall.

Today I looked into the sky and it was beautiful. Then I realized it is because you are there. You fly with the angels now but a part of you will always be with us.

The Prusko family would like to

thank everyone for all their

heartfelt love and support.
