Jennie Chinni, 88, a lifelong resident of Carbondale, died Saturday afternoon at Mid-Valley Hospital, Blakely.

Her greatest joy in life was taking care of her nieces and grandnephew, because her family meant everything to her. She was a good-hearted person and was loved by all who knew her. She also enjoyed watching daily Mass on television and game shows. She will also be missed by the apples of her eye, her poodles, Candy, Daisy, Blossom, Autumn and Lilly.

She was also preceded in death by a brother, Dominick Chinni; and a sister, Josephine DePoti.
