Obituary of Jennie Stevens

Knox- Jennie Jablonowski Stevens, 99, passed away peacefully Monday, May 14, 2018, surrounded by her loving family. Born on February 5, 1919, she lived in Albany, then Voorheesville, graduating from Albany High and Mildred Elley Business School. She met her beloved husband, Marshall, while roller-skating at the Knox Cave skating rink. They married in 1940 and Jennie worked side by side with her husband in their home heating oil business, until her retirement in 2004. A devoted member of Knox Reformed Church, Jennie was active in the Social Club, Vacation Bible School and Election Day Chicken Supper. She loved to watch sports on television, especially the Yankees. She took joy in tending to her beautiful flower gardens and spent many years boating on Sacandaga Lake. Above all else she was happiest spending time with her family, whether it was celebrating special occasions, attending their school and sporting events or vacationing with them. In addition to her husband, Marshall Stevens, she was predeceased by her parents, Walter and Helen Jablonowski; her brothers, William, Henry and Frank Jablonowski; her sister, Helen Zeronda; daughter-in-law, Bonnie Stevens. She is survived by her children, Robert Stevens of Knox, Ronald (Kathy) Stevens of Schoharie, Bradford (Jan) Stevens of Canandaigua and Marcia (Mark) White of Liverpool; grandchildren, Jason, Travis, Daniel, Megan, Rebecca, Tylor and Amber; 14 great-grandchildren, by whom she affectionately known as "GG"; many nieces and nephews, and dear friends. The family would like to express their sincerest thanks to the Eddy Visiting Nurses and The Community Hospice for the compassionate care they provide Jennie.
