She graduated from Tahlequah High School and later from Northeastern State University with her bachelor’s degree in accounting and a proud member of Alpha Sigma Alpha. She worked for several years at Cherokee Nation Housing and most recently as a manufacturing controller for Xcalibur International in Pryor. When Jennie had a little free time, she liked to do a little shopping and she loved sporting events, especially University of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma City Thunder. She was a family-oriented woman that loved any time spent with her daughters and grandchildren. She was strong willed and independent, with a soft compassionate side for her family and friends. She was goal oriented and reliable with leadership qualities she used throughout her lifetime. She had an unshakable faith in God, and was a faithful member of Southside Baptist Church. She taught Sunday school and sang in the choir, lending her time and talent wherever she could. She loved her church family dearly and looked forward to lunch dates with the ladies.
