Her past workplaces included EPI and the Battle Creek Enquirer and News. She then worked for 16 years as a Materials Manager at Post Holdings where she met her beloved husband Steve.

Jenny loved the Lord and converted to the Roman Catholic faith. She had a most compassionate heart, especially concerning God's most vulnerable creatures of the animal kingdom. She fostered and rescued dogs and cats, donated time and money to many shelters, and loved all animals. She doted on her three dogs Onion, Puggles and Pugpantz, and she passed away reassured by their presence. She also enjoyed candle making, restoring antique furniture, and restoring and decorating her beautiful Victorian-style home in Marshall, Michigan.
