    Dearest Jenny,
    I write this today with a heavy heart knowing I can no longer hear your laughter, look into your sparkling eyes, or simply squeeze you tight in my arms. You were born an angel, a vision of baby perfection and beauty that compares to none. Your strong spirit developed quickly as you grew and you could command a crowd and spice up the world around you. You loved so deeply and brought people into your circle quickly with your warmth, wit, and charm. I was blessed to be part of your family as you poured your love over us each and every time we gathered. The essence of your love will never fade in our hearts and minds. I know the greatest love of your life, Grandpa Ralph, aka the “Silver Fox”, is now with you in heaven. We smile now knowing you are safe and warm enjoying the destiny that eventually will come to pass for us all. Hugs and Kisses my sweet!

    I knew Jen from her time in Anderson, Ak. We were the best of friends back then and stayed in touch through the years. I am heartbroken for her family and anyone she touched in her life. Her passing so early is a loss to this world. Jenny I love girl, and I always will.

    Though I know that this is a difficult time for your family, my hope is that you will be comforted from God’s inspired word, the Bible. John 5: 28, 29 and Revelation 21: 3, 4 offer us the hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus’ kingdom rule, we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences.

I will never forget the first time I saw your face as I was waddling home from work pregnant as can be, your amazing empathetic heart made you stop and ask I wanted a ride. That is how our story began with only the love you could give. I love you! Your love is eternal give love to Dan for me. Your reunion with your true love (your papa) I’m sure is epic! Love!

    Sharon and Helen,
    I don’t even know where to begin. I am so sorry for your losss and I pray during this difficult time God will hold you in the palm of his hand. A quote from my Dad’s funeral card always gave me comfort and I hope it will do the same for you. Remember me with smiles and laughter if you only can remember me with tears don’t remember me at all.,

  25. Tara Wittman says:

    I met Jenny at the Warren swimming pool when we were elementary school age, and she was my oldest friend. Though we had grown apart the past few years, I knew I could call her any time and we would pick up right where we had left off – no matter how long… Today I’m wishing I had. Jenny was an absolute fireball, and I will remember her and our many years of shenanigans fondly. My deepest condolences to you Sharon, and Plencener family.

  26. Denise St Germain says:

    Oh Sharon…. My heart aches to hear of your Jenny’s passing. I remember her twinkling eyes and beautiful smile whenever I’d see her.
    May the love of family and friends comfort and enfold you at this time.
    With love and prayers

  28. Anne Miska Smith says:

    Sharon and family,

    I am so sorry to hear of Jenny’s passing. I met Jenny only once, when she was in her stroller. She was all smiles and had a twinkle in her eye. Whenever I met Sharon, I would ask how Jenny was, and Sharon’s face always lit up. Sharon loved Jenny very, very, much, and a love like that is a joy to behold. I loved watching the video of photos, and marveled how much, especially in the graduation ones, she resembles Sharon. Again the strong love between Jenny and her family extends far beyond the borders of the photo.

    My love, prayers, and sympathy to Sharon and family, and a chin scratch and petting to Jenny’s cat, Charlie, who is also missing her.

    Dear Jenny or as you would say “Hey Lady” haha

    I miss you already girl it is so hard to grasp the concept that I will never hear your laughter see your smile or tone of your voice until it’s my time on That Beach”. I remember when we were chitchatting on Facebook Messenger in the middle of Feb and you said “so when are you going to be in Fargo then I just gotta see you my brain will explode without you” and I stated I’m in Fargo every week to get my fruit supply at Sam’s Club haha and said next time I’m in town I will call you so I did but you didn’t answer later finding out that you were in the hospital. I think we both assumed there would be a Next Time but sadly the truth is we really never know what tomorrow brings in the blink of an eye or even in the next hour someone’s life can change forever it’s pretty scary actually. Sadly my friend in this case there wasn’t a Next Time but no matter what I will hold onto the good times we had. I love the fact that even if you and I didn’t talk for months we somehow always picked up where we left off or if we ran into each other at a store or whatever it was like it was no lapse in time. I remember the times we would go eat at Paradiso and we would be talking forever and all the sudden we noticed the lights were going out and they were closing the place because we had been there that long. I will also never forget the times you came down to our cabin oh how I will miss your laugh your smile and our great conversations were there around the non fire. Jenny when I heard about your passing it was from the voice message that your mother had left me, while waiting in a doctors appointment and I saw that it was you calling and I got excited because I said wow I haven’t talk to her in a while soon as I get out of here to call you back but the doctor was taking longer than I thought so I thought what the heck she left a voice message so I’ll listen to it the next thing I know I was hearing the news from your mother, my eyes swelled up with tears and when the doctor came in I had to somehow convince him that I wasn’t depressed only to explain to him that I just got the news that a really good friend of mine passed away this morning. My first thought was this can’t be right in an instant I was thinking how can I be without my friend that I talk to every couple months at that moment memories of you replayed in my head probably about stuff I hadn’t thought about in years. about the day I met you when your mom introduced us at pistol Pete’s or the time we went camping up in thief river Falls or all the time that we spent in your apartment with gizmo and Charlie the time that I thought gizmo was not gonna make it through the night and you’re rushed over to my dads place to console me and spend time with “Momo”. I love how you had that cute nickname for him. With all these memories rushing in my head all at once I had the feeling “hmmmm Jenny is this you putting these great memories of our times together in my head”. I found myself smiling and even laughing through the tears that swelled up in my eyes so if it’s OK with you I’m going to continue to laugh and try not to cry when I remember the good times and try not to think of the last few conversations we had where you were not so happy and I was worried about you my friend. I guess I will never know the true answers of why you were so sad and struggling till I see you again. Jenny I just want you to know how grateful I am for all the time I have spent with you over the years throughout your journey here and I want you to know that you always have a spot in my heart right next to the one where Gizmo’s is. You’ll forever be remembered by your friends and family you left behind. I know you are on that beautiful gorgeous beach relaxing next to your furry friend Gizmo who sadly passed away last September. Jenny I know in the past that we always talked about getting up and moving to some beach side town but my friend you made it there before I did. Hoping one day soon I can find a beautiful one here on earth because if I’ve learned anything from your passing I’m going to start living life to the fullest, not take things for granted and not be afraid to step outside my box
    Jenny I really want to thank you for always being there through a lot of my tough times for being such a great friend with such great love in your heart. In case you didn’t know you were such a positive impact to everybody around you. you will truly be loved and missed and please watch over me ur family and friends and keep us safe. May God hold you in the palm of his hands being No longer in pain, suffering or sad. .

    Until we meet on that Beautiful Beach.

    Jennifer Tillisch

    PS Sorry I chickened out and didn’t read this at your memorial afraid I would’ve been to teary-eyed that no one would’ve understood me.

    Jenny…lil “fun size” Jenny. You should have been here to grow old with us, but I guess that wasnt meant to be. All of these memories from all our shenanigans from high school and Pistol Petes have been flooding over me the past few days…way too many things to list. We were a force when we were together…you’d get us in the trouble, I would get us out. Ha! 🙂 I will always remember you, and what a bond we shared. We went through a lot of stuff together, through high school and beyond. We had our fights and disagreements, but we loved each other and always had each other’s backs, when push came to shove. Once you met Jenny, you couldn’t forget her…or her motor mouth! Jenny…you will never be forgotten.

    Rest easy my beautiful friend, until we meet again. Love you forever.
