I grew up visiting Home hospital as my "mamma" Deb Weirick worked with Jenny for many years. I have cherished their stories and I pray they are both enjoying a nice visit up there together while watching over us. Jenny was always such a kind and funny coworker to be around, and she brought joy and compassion to everyone. She was a comfort to us when she was the one who responded to take care of Deb in her final minutes. Thank you, Jenny, for being there and for all the memories. Kelly Dardeen (and Deb Weirick family)

I knew Jenny from the good old Home Hospital days. When medics would bring a patient to our unit and I would see she was on that run I knew that patient received the best care ever . RIP sweet Jenny❤️

Jenny was a friend to all had no enemies. With a heart as pure as the morning dew and a light in such a dark world. Such a local icon respected and loved by all. The world needs more people like Jenny, so loving, caring and generous. Jenny was always there for anyone that needed anything any time of day or night. People are truly better because of knowing you! You truly will be missed, may your legacy live on and continue to be an inspiration for all!

Oh Jenny....you were one of the best people I ever met. Your heart was so big in helping others, I think it finally needed to rest. 😔 I will never forget, every year we worked together, I would hear your snow pants before I would see you and I would yell, 'Jenn-AAAAAA' and I would hear back, 'Shan-nonnnnnn'. 🖤 You will always be remembered and loved.

So sorry for the loss of Jenny. My first EMT preceptor. She taught me what professionalism in EMS looked like. Great medic, even better human.

Hugs and prayers to Jennys family. I was blessed to be able to work with Jenny a few times as her partner on medic 4. What a blessing it was to learn from the best and most kind hearted person. one call we had I will never forget we ended up with a bicycle tied down to the bench seat all to save LPD a trip to the hospital, funny stuff hope I can find that pic. The call was car vs ped, than car vs mc ended up being intoxicated individual falling over on his bicycle in the grass.

Jerry, Jim Jane and Jeff. So many good times we had together at your house when my kids were little. Jenny was their favorite cousin growing up. I remember Robert and Larry throwing Jenny in the horse tank for her birthday every year! I haven't come to grips with this yet, but know I' right there with you. Love you all.

Both of my parents knew Jenny from her time as a paramedic at Home Hospital. They are saddened to hear of her passing. The dedication Jenny had to work for over four decades helping sick and injured people was incredible and she will be dearly missed.

Ah Jenny. Our paths have crossed many times over the years. I especially enjoyed times at the drag strip. My gosh! The food you would cook for the scores of us there working the strip. Unbelievable! The many times you and Rose would show up on our assist requests. We always hoped it would be you and Rose. What a duo. ☺️You made a difference for so many people Jenny. And for that, I thank you. Rest easy sweet lady. Tell Bruce I still think he’s a knucklehead….Much respect Jenny…Much respect…😔
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
