    I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Jenny for the last several years at Flintville Elementary. I will greatly miss her. She was always so eager to help. She always wanted to be busy.

    Aunt Jenny will always hold a very dear place in my heart. I remember making the transistion from living in Virginia with the family I had grown up with, and coming to Tennessee being very confusing. Aunt Jenny always gave me hope that everything would work itself out, and it did. One of my favorite memories was being at Aunt Peggy’s with her and I had never drank Sundrop, so she sent me and Anna to the store to purchase my very first Sundrop. I wasn’t impressed…haha. Another time, my little brother Jonathan had planted watermelon seeds along her sidewalk and grew the biggest, prettiest watermelon vine you can imagine, only to have the lawn boy mow over it one day. Aunt Jenny was none to happy about it, and she said so too! She took me to church for the first time when I moved here. I can remember talking to her about my heighth and she would say, “don’t you worry about being taller than the rest of the girls, when you get older you will appreciate it, because you’ll be able to carry a little weight”…she was right. There are so many memories of her that I have carried with me, and will continue to for the rest of my life. God certainly broke the mold with her, there will never be another. She will forever be in my heart and on my mind.

    Jenny Faye was a dear friend of our family especially my Mama, her fishing partner. I know she will be missed by many and my thoughts are with all who she touched so sweetly. If there’s a creek running through Heaven, I’m sure she , Mama and Aunt Nellie have found it by now and are re-living fun times together. Allow the memories to carry you all through these difficult times and know that people care and that I’m one of them.

    Life was not always easy for Aunt Jenny but she never gave in to self-pity or bitterness. She enjoyed the “little” things in life like playing scrabble, watching sports on television, going for a ride, and being with her grandchildren. One of my favorite memories is playing scrabble with her during Christmas. She had some homemade wine simmering on her stove and we sipped on wine (she convinced me all the alcohol had been “cooked” out) and played scrabble all evening. Of course, she won every time. Aunt Jenny’s passing will leave a void in all of our hearts but I can’t be sad for her because I know she is in the arms of her Savior and has been reunited with so many of her loved ones.

    Aunt Jenny always made us macaroni and cheese and apple butter. She used to say we could live off of her mac and cheese…and she was probably right!! She was definitely “old school” and believed in making us mind but at the same time still managed to let us have fun when we were with her. She was definitely one of a kind and we will miss her and love her forever!!!!
    Kisses and Hugs!!

    Aunt Jenny was very special to me. She always helped me with my school work. I remember once in kindergarten, she would not let me give up when everyone else was finished with their “Tacky T” paper. I was being pokey as usual, but Aunt Jenny stuck with me until I finally finished. If I ever forgot my ice cream money, she would slip me a quarter so that I could enjoy a fudge sickle with my friends. Another thing I liked about being at school with Aunt Jenny is that sometimes she would call me by my first name, Emerson, not just plain old Reid like everyone else did. Most of all, I know Aunt Jenny loved me not only because she was my school Granny and she had to, but because she was my great great aunt! I will miss her a lot until I see her again in Heaven.

    Mrs. Jenny has touched the lives of many students and teachers at Flintville Elementary School. She was an amazing woman! I listed myself as the Granny Supervisor, but she did more supervising of me than I did of her. She was a blessing to us at FES and we will all miss her greatly. She loved her family and spoke of them often. May God comfort you all during your great loss.

    To All of Aunt Jenny’s Lovely Family:

    I can only imagine how all of you feel right now. She was a very sweet, kind lady. I only had the pleasure of meeting her twice in my life that I can remember. Once, when Daddy past away (June 1984) and the other when we were able to visit Tennesse in August of 1984. I feel like I have known her forever and have such a empty spot in my heart. We used to write each other and few times a year and when she felt she was unable to write any longer, we talked on the phone. She sent me so many precious little items such as Daddy’s first hair cut (curl) and some pictures of him as a child. I will miss our little chats so much and wish we had of talked and seen each other more often. May she forever rest in peace and God Bless all of you! Love Always, Michelle
