Born in Steubenville Ohio on June 24, 1964, Jenny grew up in Toronto, Ohio. Following the birth of her eldest son Jacob, she moved to Virginia where her sons Joshua and Logan were born, and she met lifelong friends, Sandy Baugess, Anne Nichols, Carman Mann, Ed Neil, and Debbie Shultz who were with her until the end.
Jenny was above all else, a stubbornly loving mother who doted on and unapologetically worried after her boys from the day they were born. Her heart was so full of love for her children and family, that it was truly overwhelming at times. Jenny became ill in November of 2019, and was given 6 months to live, but she fought her way home to be with Logan. Her dedication to raising her youngest son gave her the strength to fight for over two years, until she saw him through his last childhood birthday, when he turned 17 on February 14th, 2022.
She was an avid reader of Danielle Steel, Sydney Sheldon, and Stephen King, among others. She was a gifted writer of short stories and poetry. Among her favorite things in life were her evil cat Sadie, the Steelers, the color purple, frogs, coffee, Marlboros, and Bud Light. She loved to play all sorts of games, like Euchre, Othello, and Yahtzee–and she was a bad loser and a worse winner. She will be missed every day in the hearts of her loved ones, until they meet again.
Visitation with the family will be from 5 pm to 7 pm at Rader Funeral Home,
