She is loved and will be deeply missed.
Jennie is survived by her daughters, Dale (Eugene) Hynick of Voglers Cove, Sylvia Anthony of Riversdale, Darlene Anthony of Riversdale, Nancy (Phil) Hatt of Brooklyn, Barbara Langille of Riversdale; sons, Jerry (Karen) of Mill Village, Greg (Mary) of Amherst, and Jamie (Dawn) of Charleston; grandchildren, Nadine, Kendall, Nicole, Megan, Jeremy, Victoria, Brittany, Tyler, Ryan and Logan; great grandchildren, Chantel, Taylor and Max.
