Jennie was a very special person & friend. The many activities we shared thru the Mandarin Women's Club are some of my best memories. We enjoyed 3 cruises together to the Caribbean, Alaska, & Mexico. I used to tease her about being the Mandarin jet setter because she was always on the go with her various groups. Disease robbed us of her joyful spirit long ago. My condolences to Rob & the family. She is whole again finally! Iris & Larry Read

Jennie was one of the first people to welcome me when I joined the Mandarin Newcomers Club. I felt like I had an instant friend. Over the years, we spent time sharing many activities, Antiquing, Mexican Train, Hans and Foot, and Bunco. We were all so happy when it was Jennie’s turn to host at her and Rob’s home, because we knew how good the food would be.
All of these years later, many hostesses are proud to serve food made using Jennie’s recipes.
We will always remember and miss Jennie, who made such a difference in our club and in our lives.
Rest In Peace, Jennie. We’ll see you again.
