Jen loved music, was an accomplished pianist, and loved to dance. She was generous of heart and giving in spirit. Jen will be warmly remembered by those whose lives she touched. She fought her illness heroically and although nothing can assuage our grief, the family is thankful for the doctors and nurses who took such great care of her and for the friends and family who gave emotional and spiritual support to Jen – she enjoyed and valued every visit and thought and prayer. Jennifer Rhoads White passed with peace and grace on Thursday, January 3, 2019 in the arms of her loving husband and with family by her side.
