Jennifer Kay Warnke, age 41, passed away on February 14, 2013, in her home in Sylvania surrounded by her family. Jenny was born April 10, 1971, in Toledo, OH to Richard Duane and Patricia Ann Donbrosky. She attended Whiteford Agricultural School and began working for Bennett Management shortly after graduation and remained with the company until she was no longer able to work. Jenny was a fair and focused supervisor. She would take her time with customers and make them feel special. One customer in particular would come in just to see her. Jenny loved her family- her children above all. She would go without to make sure her children had everything they needed. Jenny was also a loving wife, daughter, sister and friend. Her smile lit up a room and her laughter was infectious. Her favorite place to be was home with her family but she also loved going to Hocking Hills and the Smoky Mountains. When Jenny learned she was losing her battle with cancer, she said, "I'm going to be with the Lord in the Smokys".
Jenny is survived by her husband, Paul; children, Autumn, David, and Ricky; mother, Patricia (Randy); sisters, Connie (Kevin) and Peg (Billy), and brothers, Tim (Cindy) and Adam. She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, who she was very close to and treated as if they were her own- nieces, Kelsey and Kylie, Stacey, Britaney, Cassie, and Courtney, and nephews, Keith and Owen. She was preceded in death by her father, Richard Donbrosky. Jenny missed her dad greatly over the years. She loved hearing stories about him and looking at photos. Her family takes comfort in knowing that not only is she in the arms of Jesus, but also in the arms of her dad he is holding his little "Poochie".
Jenny's family is so very grateful to Dr. Phibbs and the staff at the Hickman Cancer Center- a special thank you to Kathy and Stephanie. We would also like to thank Hospice of Northwest Ohio for helping us keep Jenny at home especially her nurse Kathy Trzcinski.
