Jennie, also known as Jane, born in – and a longtime resident of – Martinez, was well known and loved by many people whose lives she touched.
Jennie graduated from Alhambra High School in 1937. In 1941 she married Gordon J. Samuels, and enjoyed his company for 70 years until he passed in Dec 2011. She worked for many years in the Contra Costa County Tax collector’s office and, in her spare time, took care of her parents, traveled on occasion to sight see and fish, participated in the YLI, and enjoyed the companionship of her dogs, knitting and especially cooking holiday meals for family.
