Genevieve “Jenny” Prickett, 95 of Urbana, went home, Sunday, January 29, 2012, in Mercy Memorial Hospital, Urbana.
She was born January 15, 1917 the daughter of the late, Byron and Cecil (Foster) Warren.
Jenny was a volunteer with her church and with the meals-on-wheels program. She was an avid bowler and a member of the North Mothers Club. Jenny enjoyed swimming, reading, putting together puzzles, making and collecting frogs. She also loved her dogs, Mac and Toby. Jenny was a strong determined Christian woman who cared about her church, family, friends and anyone in need. The 95 years God lent her to us was spent trying to be a good person with Christian morals, who did the best she knew how to do. She achieved her goal and her family and friends are blessed by all that she did. She left here for a better place, but she also left this place better for having known her.
