She was a loving and devoted grandmother who rarely missed a game, concert, Skype date, first communion, graduation or birthday party, and enjoyed rooting for and was a fan of the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots. Jennifer also enjoyed the company of her many nieces and nephews, was for years active in civic and cultural affairs and was also a loyal and attentive neighbor. An inventive chef, she lovingly prepared fish caught by her family members, sometimes near Wellfleet, MA, where she enjoyed spending part of every summer. Over the course of her lifetime, Jennifer sewed and painted well over 50 "stitched narratives," many of which have been shown in galleries and which today hang in homes and institutions up and down the Eastern seaboard. It has been requested that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made in Jennifer's name to the Cambridge Family and Children's Service, 60 Gore St, Cambridge, MA 02141, To send a message of condolence, please visit
