Jane Denny

Born on November 11, 1938, Jane Kishlock married Robert Denny, on March 7, 1957. They have two children: Bob and Mike; Bob is married to Aurora and lives in San Diego; Mike is married to Lisa and they live in Eden Prairie, MN; five grandchildren: Kristi, Josh, Dennis, Deidre, and Andrew; and was blessed with 7 great-grandchildren:  Garrison, Lola, Merric, Ayden, Mason, Jett, and Ariya.  Jane was preceded in death by her husband, parents and a granddaughter, Kristi.

Our Mom can be defined in many ways, but these words come to mind; loving, caring, giving, fun, fair, and firm. She was loving at all times and all of her words and actions were started in love. Caring came natural to our Mom. She cared for her family first, but caring in all of her relationships with friends and with strangers. Giving defines her heart.  She gave of herself, her time, her love, and skills. She had an infectious laugh and smile; she enjoyed everything about life. Her attitude was always positive even when times were tough. She knew how to be fair.  She recognized the unique gifts, talents, interests, and needs of her two sons. She was able to nurture, teach and cultivate those talents.

What really has inspired us, and we are sure has inspired many, many people is the love our Mom had for her husband, Bob. They enjoyed 63 years of marriage. They truly kept the promises in those Marriage Vows;  to love in good and bad, sickness and health, rich and poor. They worked at their marriage and when times were toughest they worked even harder.

We remember how our Mother would comfort us over the loss of pet dog. How she tolerated the many pets we had, even the snakes. How she sacrificed so we could attend Catholic schools; driving us every day to elementary school, packing our lunches and volunteering to help teach for the extra money. She helped us to learn and grow by allowing us to try and make mistakes without being critical. She was our Boy Scout Den Mother. She was a nurse, a friend, and a cheerleader at sporting contests.  You knew as long as you did your best you had her love and support. We remember how she drove us in the summer to our job taking care of 10 baseball fields. She taught us to save our money. She taught us how to cook, do dishes, do laundry, and even iron clothes. She wanted to prepare us in every way to be successful in whatever path we chose. When we were finishing high school and it was time to step into the world, we were ready because of all she did for us. Her preparation prevented us from any poor performances. She continued to sacrifice of herself by taking a job selling shoes to assist us financially in those first few years of independence.

We remember the happiness and joy when we married and when we gave her grandchildren. We remember celebrations, the birthday parties, Thanksgiving Dinners, and the Christmas trees. She was so very proud of all of her grandchildren; how each one gave her a separate joy and how each one felt as if they were her favorite; because she knew how love each one for their own unique talents and gifts. She was so proud and she knew in her heart that we learned the traits of loving, caring, giving, fun, fairness, and firm; with a devote Faith in God.

She is now reunited with her husband, her parents, and one of her precious granddaughters, Kristi. She lives on in the memories of her remaining family and friends her on this Earth. We will share those memories so her loving, caring, and giving to live on. We Love You Mom.

Private family services will be held at St. Michael Cemetery. Memorials may be designated to the Alzheimer’s Association.
