She loved working on her yard and took great pride in her home. Jennie was preceded in death by her parents, her twelve siblings, and her son, Theodore (Ted) Otero. She is survived by her nieces, Victoria Vigil (husband, Ernest), and Gloria "Glo" Francis, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
