Tragedy is not the way to remember Jenny. We remember her earthy voice, great big laugh, her beautiful smile, her huge heart, zest for life and her melancholy spirit. Jenny was gifted and she enjoyed writing stories and poetry, growing a garden, singing and playing guitar, painting and sketching, camping, working out at the gym, doing yoga, playing softball, and was a fabulous cook.
