Early Tuesday morning, we lost Jenny. She passed away at the RVH surrounded lovingly by her family. In her final weeks she gave us hope that our summer would be spent fishing, eating, and gardening in between her chemo treatments. She went too quickly and too soon. She was 66.
Jenny loved her family with her whole heart. After growing up and starting her career in Toronto, she moved to Barrie to raise her children. She spent many years providing home day care for the community. She worked at Sears and then United Lumber before retiring in March. Her entire being was spent loving and caring for her family. The space that she leaves within us is immense.
Jenny will always be lovingly remembered by her son Eric, daughter Christine (Piotrek), sister Sylvia and nephew Jeffrey. She is remembered fondly by the Sarris family and a group of friends and colleagues that spans decades. Though she was a private person, she was loved by many.
The family wishes to thank Carol Hardy and the healthcare staff that helped Jenny in her final weeks. We were able to spend many precious moments with her this spring.
Cremation has taken place and the family plans for a private ceremony. Her ashes will be scattered in her favourite fishing spot, along with those of her beloved dog Dexter. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice and if you wish communicated to Peaceful Transitions Funeral Home.
