MUSCATINE, Iowa - Jennifer Beth "Jenny" French, 67, of Muscatine, passed away on June 19, 2019, at her home.

A Celebration of Life and burial will take place at a later date. The Ralph J. Wittich-Riley-Freers Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements. Memorials may be made to The Almoner Fund, to be distributed by the Muscatine Community Services in Jenny's name. Online condolences:

Jenny was born on April 26, 1952, in Marion, Indiana, the daughter of William and Patricia McGrew French.

She worked at Snackers where everyone in town knew her, and then at Goodwill, which she also loves since she enjoyed clothes and fashion. She was very artistic and at one point, taught art at the Phoenix House. Jenny enjoyed drawing pictures, painting and was very creative through her life.

People who knew Jenny valued greatly her excellent sense of humor, and her predilection as a punster. She was known to everyone to have as the sweetest temperament despite her difficult life.

She is survived her sister, Nancy Erroll French Lunning of St. Paul, Minnesota and her son, Chance Patrick Lunning; and Robert Lunning; her brother, Peter Daniel French and wife, Jevne Diaz-French, of Baltimore, Maryland and their children: Moira Diaz-French and husband, Steve Alvarez, and their daughter Alice, and Lucia Diaz-French and Tim Carlson; and Jenny's close friend, Michael Nortman.

Jenny was preceded in death by her parents.

Nancy and Peter, I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many memories of Jenny and they all involve her humor and fun spirit, whether it was in dramatics. overnights or church. After church each Sunday, we would walk to Wintermutes Ice Cream ( of course she called it Summer Talkatives) and get cream sodas and Hostess fruit pies. She will be remembered.

Jenny French...I always considered you a part of our family. Your love for Michael was unshakable. You could bring sunshine into the rainiest day. You were indeed the happiest person I know. I will miss driving around with you and Michael singing to the oldies. Godspeed sister.♥️
