VIRGINIA "JENNY" LEE VANALLMAN
Virginia "Jenny" Lee VanAllman, 79, gained her heavenly wings and was guided to the golden gates of heaven with her Lord and Savior by her side on Saturday, March 19, 2022.

Jenny was a wife and mother who loved her family with a fierce and generous heart. She loved taking care of her animals and loved her own pets, especially her beloved dog, Cujo. Jenny was a precious soul who never shied away from a problem or obstacle and was an inspiration to anyone who knew her. Her favorite flower was lilacs and her favorite color is yellow.
