Memories Timeline


  1. There are few people who walk this earth as “living angels,” and Jennie was definately one of them. I shall never forget her warm smile and loving ways. She was a gift to so many of us who had the pleasure of knowing her. Please know that you have my heartfelt sympathy and prayerful support as you grieve your loss. With love and prayers, Stan Tuchalski

  2. Dear LaButis and Mateusiak families, May God be with you as you face the loss of your wonderful Jennie. She truly was an angel here on Earth. She always had a kind smile and kind words to greet everyone. She will always be a part of my fond memories of home. Gilda

  3. Words can not describe the saddness that I feel. After spending many summers and holidays up there, she was like a grandmother to me. She was such a sweet woman and will be greatly missed. I am so very sorry that I could not make it to pay my respects. Please know that all of you are and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. My deepest sympathies. I love you all!

  4. Trina and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so glad that I got to know Jennie. She was a matriarch in our church and what a great example of giving for all of us. She loved her God, her church and her family. May you be comforted by your memories. God Bless.

  5. God called a very special angel home. I have been blessed to have known Jennie. We worked on many Christ Renews His Parish retreats together. Althought she was always the oldest–Jennie had the youngest heart and the most gentle spirit. No matter when I saw her I got a Jennie style hug, smile, and ornery twinkle in her eyes. I will miss her. My prayers and thoughts are with you as you bid an earthly farewell to her. Know that God and His angel rejoice at her homecoming.

  6. Dear Eugene, Donna and Trina: How very blessed and priviledged I am to have known and loved “our Jennie.” I say “our” because she was so much a part of many of us who loved her. God is smiling. “His Jennie” is Home where she is dancing on those streets of gold. I have beautiful memories of her as do you. Treasure them as those memories will keep her with you always. I am praying for you during this great loss. Love, Paula Krensavage

  7. Trina and family, What a beautiful person Jennie was; so much love and compassion; especially her love of Jesus. She was a true example of what a Catholic is. We will miss her terribly but we will one day see her again. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
