Jennie had a strong passion in the kitchen and will be remembered for her home-cooked meals along with her delicious baked goods. When she wasn’t cooking, you could find her knitting one of her famous afghans, while she watched the television or talked on the phone with her family in New York. These diligent and working hands did more than just make food and materials, but were also used to serve and aid others. She advocated for those in need and provided assistance to those seeking better opportunities in this country. From raising money to offering transportation to even something as simple as supplying them with clothes, Jennie dedicated a mass amount of hours in this aspect of her life. Such a characteristic was also exemplified in how she cared for those in her own home as well. Her family and friends will always treasure the memories made with Jennie. The legacy she leaves behind and the values she imprinted in many hearts will forever be cherished.

Adamo III, Alexandria Pasquale, Anthony Adamo, and Elizabeth Usman; her great-grandchildren, Alexander, Elizabeth and William Pasquale, Gabriella and Nicholas Adamo, Isabelle and Nathaniel Grenier, Emmett and Abigail Usman.
