She worked as a CNA at Walnut Grove in Morris, and continued her career of love and care at home raising her children. Jennie was a devout Catholic and member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Kinsman. She enjoyed cooking, canning and suntanning while floating in her pool. Jennie’s greatest hobby was her family, and she cherished spending time with family, friends, and especially her grandson, Archer.

Jennie was preceded in death by her mother, Stephanie (Biros) Latham in 1999; special uncle, Butch Steele; grandparents and numerous aunts and uncles.

The family will have a private family visitation at Reeves Funeral Home in Coal City, before Jennie is taken to the mountains of Tennessee, which she dearly loved. She will be laid to rest in Knob Creek Cemetery in Sevier County, Seymour, Tennessee.
