While living in Columbus, Ohio, she worked with the mentally handicapped and disabled, giving of her time and talent while raising three children.
This dedicated wife and mother moved with her family to many locations in this country based on the employment of her spouse. For the past 20+ years, she called Maine home.

Jenny is survived by her husband Frank; sons Frank Jr., Michael and Christopher. She is also survived by her sister Ann and brother Edward. Jenny leaves behind grandsons Nikolai, Alex and Jackson Cash Semancik.
Jenny was the true matriarch of the Semancik family. She was someone who would listen to the concerns of others and give of herself without reservation. She will be missed greatly by all who knew her.
