After spending some time in Alberta, Jenny and Alfred settled on a farm in Moorefield Ontario where they raised a family of 7 children. Jenny was an active member in the Drayton Christian Reformed Church. She loved to read, made frequent trips to the Drayton Library, and enjoyed playing cards, dice and other games with her children and grandchildren. She made a mean Dutch vegetable soup for Sunday lunch and her lemon meringue pie was sought after at family gatherings. She will be dearly missed.
