Carl, Gary and family; I want to express my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother, grandmother and great grandmother; she was a remarkable and wonderful woman, who I had the pleasure of knowing for nearly 50 years. May she rest in peace.

Aunt Jenny will always be remembered by her family and friends for so many things. Her stability, strength, and especially her sense of humor to endure any turbulence that life had dealt her or her family. She was a wonderful cook and homemaker as well. Unfortunately, the past couple years have not been a friend to any of us. I pray she is comfortable now and enjoying her friends and loved ones in heaven.

To the entire Egeberg family I'm sending my deepest condolences of Jennie's passing. Carl, Jennifer, Gary & Joanne all of you know how much I loved Jennie.
She meant so much to me. Her spunk, her humor, her cooking & especially her advice. I've missed the good times at the cottages in Sackets but I cherish the memories. RIP Jennie I know you are with everyone now. Have afternoon coffee with my Ma like all those years ago! Love you.
