Jenny Ann Johnston of Esparto passed away on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012, at the age of 37 as a result of her two-year battle with breast cancer. She was our loving wife, mother, sister and friend.
Jenny was born on Oct. 9, 1975, in Houston, Texas, the daughter of Michael and Sibbie (Johnson) Lott. She attended grade school in Texas and in California after moving here with family in 1987. She graduated from Woodland High in 1994 and went on to obtain her bachelor of fine arts degree in video production from California College of Arts and Crafts in San Francisco/Oakland.
She earned a living in various administrative positions, most notably with Pacific Maritime Association (Oakland) and EIP Associates (Sacramento). In 2004, she obtained certification as a licensed massage therapist specializing in pregnancy massage and ran her own massage therapy business called Wellspring Massage. Jenny spent the last three years of her life as a homemaker and stay at home mom, taking care of her two beautiful daughters.
She was an avid shutterbug and videographer. She enjoyed traveling with her family and tending her backyard vegetable garden. As a film buff, she loved going to the movies. She was a lover of the arts and received great joy visiting art galleries and attending concerts and plays.
Jenny's love for her family, her perseverance in overcoming obstacles and her optimism for the future are qualities which will continue to inspire and guide us.
