Steve and I had known Jenny for a little over 50 years.  She was a caring, smart, humorous, and adventurous friend!  Jenny was courageous in her fight against her illness.   We will miss her greatly.  May she rest in peace.

I plant this tree to honor a warm, loving individual and caring friend, a role model for me, devoted to her husband, family, and friends, and ever passionate for social justice.
