Jenny was a graduate of Arkansas State University where she received a Bachelor of Science in English and secondary education. She taught school in Little Rock School District for 5 years before moving to McCrory, Arkansas to run the McCrory Clinic with Jim for 35 years.
JuJu, as she was known to everybody, enjoyed planting flowers, feeding her many raccoons and cats, spending time with family and friends, and cooking for anyone that walked in her door. She was a happy and positive person that always saw the best in people. She took time to get to know each person she met especially if they stayed with her at the lake. She loved music and enjoyed writing poetry. If you were lucky, she might even scribble something down on a napkin just for you! She definitely made the world a better place and will be sorely missed.
A visitation will be held on Tuesday, November 13th at Olmstead Funeral Home in Heber Springs, Arkansas at 1:00 pm, with funeral services at 2PM. Graveside services will follow at Cleburne County Memorial Garden.
