Dave and family, I was sorry to hear of Jenny's passing. I worked with her at Civic Savings until 1988. I always looked forward to her cheery attitude. Sympathy from the Sagraves family. Dan Sagraves Civic Savings 1982-88. NCR Dayton

I worked with Jenny for many years at the library. She was always sure to keep a smile on her face and was always caring and generous. She was an incredibly strong individual and a fighter. I am saddened for her passing and my thoughts and prayer are with Dave and the family.

Jenny was a special person and her personality shined when you were around her. Her library patrons loved her because she really cared about them not just as patrons but as people. Jenny was a good friend and supportive of me no matter what happened. I will miss our time of laughter and tears but most of all her wit! Jenny - you fought the good fight, your race is over but you have victory in Jesus! Prayers to Dave and family.
