She was my pottery teacher. I only had her for one year, but I remember her letting us play our own music for a bit during class as class ended. We made robots from computer parts, tape statues, and bowls. I enjoyed her class.

There really aren’t heart hearts for her family. She was both of my kid’s favorite art teacher ever! She was warm and always thinking of others.

David, I am so sorry to hear of Jenny's passing. I can only imagine what you are going thru, but understand that God is with you and so am I. I will keep you and the boys in prayer. I hate that I never got to meet her, but she seems like such a beautiful person both inside and out. I guess God wanted her home with him, but believe me, he is always with us. God Bless and much Love! Andrea Conley and Family.
