Jenny was a loving wife and caring mother, grandmother and sister who loved her family and friends dearly. She enjoyed fishing, spending time at the beach, dancing and just being with those she loved. Jenny loved people, had lots of friends and never met a stranger. With her outgoing personality, she was always the life of the party. Jenny had a big heart, especially for animals; she was a dog’s best friend. She rescued numerous dogs, sheltered and nurtured many back to good health. She was a dear friend of Duplin County Animal Shelter where she enjoyed spending her time and loving the dogs. Jenny was the salt of the earth, a joy to be around and will surely be missed. Treasured memories will forever live in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
A Celebration of Life service will be held from 4:00pm to 5:00pm on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at Wallace Pentecostal Holiness Church.
