Jennie A. Walsh
12/7/1978 - 1/9/2011
Our beloved Jennie died on Sunday, January 9, 2011
at home, in her bed. She was 32 years old. Jennie had been very ill for a long time, struggling with anorexia
and many health complications. Her fragile body had been through so much, including ovarian cancer, a life threatening
lung infection, recurring pressure sores, chronic renal insufficiency and frequent pneumonias. Her body chemistry was often
abnormal requiring intravenous intervention. She was hospitalized often, and most recently was experiencing severe chest pain
and trouble breathing. Her body had enough, and Jennie quietly passed away this afternoon, as I was preparing to take her
to the hospital.
Jennie was my sunshine, my baby, and was a great source of comfort to me when
her sister passed away in 2009. We shared many happy times together, even when she was hospitalized. I treasure all
Jennie attended Crossroads Assembly of God for many years, working in the
nursery, Vacation Bible School and other activities. She was a gifted dancer and attended D'Marge Dance Studio as well as
the New Jersey School of Ballet. She participated in many competitions, and had a bright future in ballet until her
eating disorder took hold.
I took care of Jennie for many years, and thank God for the opportunity to
be there for her in her times of need. She was a blessing to me and I cherish the years we had together.
The daughter of John and Marie (me) Walsh, Jennie is predeceased by her sister,
Laura. Her older sister Jackie went home to be with the Lord in June, 2013. She is survived by her brother David. She was also aunt to Jack, Reeve and Luke Walsh, children of David and his
wife Pam; niece of Helen and Stew Owens; cousin to Craig, Jessica and her husband Joe, and their children Amanda and Joey;
and niece of Gary Walsh of Vermont.
