November 20, 1930 – April 15, 2014
Jenny, the second youngest of six children, was born in Edmonton and raised in the Vancouver area. She moved to Terrace in 1949 to work as a nurse at the Red Cross Outpost Hospital. Although she intended to stay only a year, she met and married her husband Dewey and they stayed in Terrace until moving to Kelowna in 2001.
During her years in Terrace she raised her family and worked at the Hospital, Sears, Terrace Drugs, and the Terrace Medical Clinic. Her home was always filled with friends and laughter and she was known for her kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.
She loved baking, knitting and camping but most of all she loved spending time with her family and friends. In 2007 she moved into assisted living where she made many new friends and enjoyed the social activities there. As her health issues persisted she remained strong with a positive outlook.
She is lovingly remembered by her daughters Cathy, Bev, Vivian and their families. Predeceased by her husband and their infant son Kim.
A Celebration of Life was held at the Village at Mill Creek in Kelowna. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
