Condolence & Memory Journal

Still in disbelief, still missing my dear friend, wondering where we would have gone to lunch this week and what we would have done to celebrate your bday? Can't believe you aren't her with us all and wish I could have done more to help you. Can't believe it was 6 years ago that I was helping Greg plan your surprise 40th! And how will it be 3 years gone in July? Still missing you everyday...

Dear Greg,
I miss Jenny so much and think of you & the children. You are in my prayers, hope you are doing well.

I still cant believe you are gone sweet Jenny. I am thinking of you always.

With Halloween approaching I thought I would share a memory from way back. Jenny is in the cute Strawberry Shortcake costume of course!

Dear sweet Jenny,
I think of you all the time. But how I come to think of you on any given day is always a little different.
One day it was seeing blue houses on my bike ride. Each one caught my eye and I'd say "oh, I love that house!" I realized I was only commenting on the blue colored ones...the color of your beautiful eyes. It could be a butterfly, a flower or a perfect fall day that will trigger thoughts of you. I feel lucky to see you in so many different things and especially blessed to be around your lovely family. I hold you in my heart sweet sister. Karen

3 months later and it seems much longer because the impact of losing Jenny is so strong to so many people. I thought of you, Greg, this beginning of the school year. I pray for you and your wonderful children. I had Jenny's picture in my living room but had to move it because it was both beautiful and hurting at the same time. I will never forget Jenny and the grace she taught me. My life is better because we were friends. Greg, you are an exceptional man who was patient in a time of turmoil. I know God has given you the strength to guide your children to become loving and lovable adults. Jane Charley, Newtown Square, PA

I have been searching for Jenny on Facebook for several years. We were classmates at Penn State GV and worked on many class projects together. I decided to just do a google search for her, and am shock to read her obituary. It's obvious that Jenny was a special person, one who even after all these years, I thought about and wondered how she was doing. Bright, funny, kind, beautiful, sweet and smart. I am sad to read that she is no longer on this earth. I am very sorry for your loss Greg. God Bless you and your family. - Kelly Hornak, Downingtown, PA - formally of Drexel Hill.

Greg/Adair/Geier Families-
I am so so heartbroken to hear of your loss. Jenny was such a special, fun, smart, creative, and kind person. She was loved by all of us that lived with her in college. We have many wonderful memories of that time and the silly and very caring person she was. I am so sad we have lost touch but am so thankful that she was part of our lives at that special time. Greg, please know you and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. Sending you strength at this time.

Jenny was wonderful. The moment I met her, I hoped she would be my friend. We were both moms at swim team practice with babies in pumpkin seats. We found out that Ali and Ella were both going to start kindergarten at the same school, and that our sons Owen and Andrew were born just a few weeks apart. When the boys started preschool, we started getting together regularly. Ali and Ella, Owen and Andrew played well together, and Jenny and I would have coffee and visit while the kids played. We talked about life, faith, and the challenges of motherhood. Jenny's desire to honor God and her love for her family were apparent in every conversation. That's why I loved to be around her. I hope Ali and Owen will come to play soon. But Jenny, I will miss you, and the wisdom and light that you brought into all our lives.

My friend, I am so sorry for your family's loss and the pain that you are feeling, Jenny was one of a kind and will be truly missed.

Posted by Todd and Patty Wilkinson - Indianapolis, IN - Friend   July 16, 2015

I think of Jenny's quiet little voice laughing, supportive, thoughtful, concerned, humorous. Her bright blue eyes and big smile looking back at me. She is truly my oldest friend. I became friends with this sweet little girl in kindergarten and while we lost touch in high school when my family moved away, we found each other again at Purdue getting our pictures take on orientation day and that sweet girl was now a sweet woman. She was a friend that no matter how much time went by it was just like yesterday when we talked or got together. You couldn't help but be touched by her light. I am heartbroken and I miss her dearly.

Greg, Sean, Ali, and Owen she loved her family so much. I am so sorry for your enormous loss. I hope you can find strength in all the love surrounding you.

Greg, I am so very sorry for your loss. It was a joy to meet Jenny and spend time with you both in Puerto Rico last year. Stay strong, my friend!

Mary and Paul, our hearts are aching for both of you and your family and grandchildren on the loss of your beautiful daughter, Jenny. May God hold you all in the palm of His hand and grant you courage and strength as you travel this difficult road. Love, Jon and Glenda Pilcher

Posted by Glenda Pilcher - Carmel, IN - friend   July 15, 2015

My husband Ted and Greg grew up together. I met Jenny many many years ago. She was the kind of person you meet and you instantly love and want to spend more time with. I loved how easy she was to talk to. We had a great time on a ski trip to Colorado in 2003. Life got busy and regrettably, we didn't see much of each other over the years, but I will always remember her beautiful face and loving heart. Greg and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

My sweet friend Jenny how I will miss your gentle heart, funny sense of humor, the calmness that you always carried, your beautiful blue eyes and most of all your genuine friendship. As I describe what an amazing mom you were, I keep finding myself saying how you loved to always go the extra mile for your kids and your family and not to impress anyone else, but because you truly loved your family and you sincerely loved being their mom! I will deeply miss our friendship and all the laughs we've had! Your beautiful smile and sparkly eyes would light up a room and your calming spirit warmed the hearts of everyone around you. I will miss you always...until we meet again...Tricia

Posted by Tricia Back - Carmel, IN - friend   July 15, 2015

I knew Jenny but a short while but she was such kind and loving person that she has always remained in my memory. She would light up a room with her presence and always had a kind word to say. I feel blessed to have known her.

Posted by Ann alburn - West chester, PA - Friend   July 15, 2015

Jenny was the sweetest young mother in our neighborhood, always outside with her children and extending a wave and a smile. We are more than a bit sadder on Spruce Drive...may she rest in peace.

My condolences to the Adair family. Find comfort in knowing you will be together with her again.

I got the worst sunburn of my life while canoeing with Jenny and Greg. We were so young and silly then--I think we laughed the entire time, especially when we took a "shortcut" and wound up paddling towards a nudist colony. The times my husband and I got to spend with Greg and Jen were never nearly enough, but they were always filled with friendship and laughter. Jenny was such a kind, beautiful soul and we will miss her. Sending lots of love to Jenny's entire family.

Jen was always a fun person to talk to when she was at an Adair event. She will be truly missed.

I am so very blessed to have known you for 20 years!! Our laughter, our tears, our play dates with the kids, lunch or breakfast and working together will all be memories I will cherish forever! You always knew just what to do for others with your kindness, always putting others first, smiling and gracious! You my dear have a heart of Gold. Rest in peace, my friend!!! My prayers go out to you Greg, Sean, Ali and Owen as well to all who loved her.

Posted by Kristina Gregory - Fishers, IN - Friend   July 14, 2015

I was lucky enough to have called Jenny a friend for almost 30 years - dating back to sophomore year French class. She was truly one of the kindest, sweetest, most generous people I've ever known and she made my life and those around her better every day. I will miss her twinkly eyes that lit up with laughter, her willingness to always lend an ear or a hand to a friend in need and her ready smile. I am so grateful to have had her in my life and feel lucky to have many, many memories of long heart-to-hearts and fits of giggles. I will miss her every day. I am heartbroken.

To Greg, Sean, Ali, Owen and the rest of her family who were such a huge part of who Jenny was, I am so sorry for this huge loss. She loved all of you so much. I will pray for your peace and comfort during this time.

For almost 30 years, I was lucky enough to call Jenny my friend. She was so kind, loving, generous and understanding. Her smile and sparkly eyes would light up any room that she was in. I am so grateful for all of the happy, silly, stressful, embarrassing, and adventurous times that we shared. Her friendship made my life better. I love you and miss you my dear, beautiful friend.

Posted by Jennifer Hoffman-Stonebraker - Indianapolis, IN - Friend   July 14, 2015


Jenny - I can still hear your laugh and see your eyes when you were laughing or listening to a friend. I was honored to be a friend. You were 33 and I was 60 but we shared the same family values, sense of humor and caring for many people who may not have been worthy to others. The world is not the same without our Jenny. But it is good to know we will meet again. Greg, you were an exceptional helpmate to Jenny. May God comfort you, your beautiful children and the extended family that meant so much to Jenny.

Posted by Jane Charley - Newtown Square, PA - Friend   July 14, 2015

Jenny is a beautiful spirit with a generous soul. She was only in my life for a short period of time when we worked together but she was very special and I am thankful for her friendship. Heaven has a new angel and we have beautiful memories of someone we loved. You and your family will remain in my prayers and thoughts.

Greg, Susan and I are so very sorry for your loss.

Posted by Dave and Susan Schebler - Three Lakes, WI - Friend of Greg's from Eli Lilly   July 14, 2015

Jenny was one of the sweetest, kindest, funniest, most helpful, selfless friends I had. I will always treasure the laughs we had on the soccer sidelines, at country concerts which will never ever be the same for me without her (she loved Toby), on our Michigan getaway, and I will always appreciate the help we provided each other as we raised kids together (carpooling, meals when someone in the family was hurt or ill, venting). Jenny, you will be missed deeply by all who loved you.

Dear Greg, Sean, Ali and Owen and Jenny's family--I am so sorry for this tremendous loss of this beautiful woman in your life. I pray for your peace and comfort in the days and years ahead. My heart just aches for you.

Posted by Jennifer and Thad Edwards - Carmel, IN - Friend   July 14, 2015

My condolences to the family and friends. May you each draw close to our loving God as we remember His promises and find comfort in the hope that he gives us. That hope of seeing our loved ones again in a beautiful new paradise home here on earth. F.S.

I am so saddened by the death of my friend Jenny. I met her over 10 years ago through the Carmel Mom's Club. We were in a playgroup together as well. We shared many wonderful moments over the past dates with kids, lunches, MNO's, dinners with other couples, etc. Her smile and eyes were so beautiful but her loving friendship is what I will miss the most. She found humor in every situation and really understood people and what other moms were going through every day. I could always count on her for anything. She put everyone ahead of her needs. We lost touch at the end and I so wish I could have one more phone call, one more lunch, one more moment with her. I was determined to reconnect with her this summer and life got away as it always seems to do. I sure hope that her pain is gone now and she is enjoying some peace finally. I miss her so much and wish I could give her one more hug. I love you very much Jenny and can't wait to meet you again.

Posted by Beth McIlvenna - Carmel, IN - Friend   July 14, 2015


always with a kind word, a pure heart and a bright smile- you could not help but simply adore and admire her even if you only met her once. May she find peace. May she smile down on all of those that loved her and watch over us- Jenny we all love you and will miss you.

Jenny and I became friends at a very important time in our lives; when we first started having kids. We were in Carmel Mom's Club together and got together every Wednesday. We talked about so many things, including our secret desire to have more kids (at the time she had two and I had one). While we did not stay in touch after those days, I have thought of her often and loved bumping into her around town. Jenny was truly one of the kindest, most sincere, most thoughtful people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am praying for her family, friends and all of those that knew her, as the world has truly lost an angel.

Posted by Beth Jacoby - Carmel, IN - Friend   July 13, 2015

I didn't know Jenny well but had met both her and you at a couple of race day parties at my nieces house (Jennifer Stonebraker). Jenny was a wonderful and beautiful person and the love she felt for her family was so evident in her actions. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss and may GOD WATCH OVER AND BLESS YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN FOREVER AND EVER

Posted by Janet Carlyle    July 13, 2015

I only had the pleasure of meeting Jenny a couple of times through a mutual friend (Melanie Eppink) but the news of her death has saddened me to my core. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, especially her children, her friends, loved ones and all the lives she touched with her beautiful smile. Rest in peace, Jenny.

"Jenny brought sunshine, joy, humor, love, thoughtfulness, patience to all she touched. We worked together at Westtown School and remained close after she moved away. I have learned that to have a good friend is the purest of God's gifts, you came into my life left a footprint on my heart and I will cherish that forever. May you rest in peace."

Jenny was so fun and funny, thoughtful and sweet, but with a sharp, wry sense of humor. She could find the humor in a situation without ever having anyone appear a fool. I think I will always miss her.

Posted by Lori Meyer - Woodbridge, NJ - Friend   July 13, 2015

Jenny was the type of person that we should all strive to be. Not sure if I've ever met anyone as patient, calm, gentle and thorough as her. Everything she did and said had such great thought and care behind it. Jenny was one of the most peaceful people I know, you could not help but feel calm and relaxed around her sweet spirit. She will be missed more than she could ever know. I am heartbroken to know that I will not get to see her blue eyes light up
During a conversation again, or her smile when joking about something. This world is now a bit dimmer without her. Rip Jenny, unit we meet again in Heaven.

Posted by Kelly Gallant - Carmel, IN - friend   July 13, 2015

Posted by Rip and Peggy Dyer - Carmel, IN - Neighbor, Friend   July 13, 2015

Jenny was one of my best friends and I've never met a kinder more patient person. Her eyes were captivating and that smile... But what was most beautiful about her was her heart and desire to never hurt anyone's feelings, her calm presence and transparency I miss her something fierce and yet am so grateful for our times together our conversations and the impact she had on my life
I love you Jenny. I'll see you in Heaven
