Jennet was an amazing cook, with her apple pie, chicken and dumplings, and fresh homemade bread being special dishes prepared for her family. Jennet loved to entertain, and was an extrovert at heart, loving being around people and serving those in need. A bounty of memories was created outdoors and around the dinner table for Jennet's large family.
Sewing was a talent Jennet possessed, making clothing, with or without a pattern on hand and her beautiful quilts. Photography was a special interest; Jennet took joy in capturing family memories and images of nature's beauty from behind the lens.
A celebration of Jennet's life will take place at a later date with inurnment taking place at the Parkhill Cemetery.
Donations are appreciated to the Country Terrace Life Enrichment Program. Jennet's family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at the Country Terrace in Komoka as well as the staff at the Geriatric Behavioural Unit at London Health Science Centre for their care and compassion.
