Jennifer "Jenny" Penrod

January 11, 1973 — December 6, 2021

North Manchester

Jennifer Rebecca “Jenny” Penrod, 48, North Manchester, passed away on December 6, 2021. The daughter of Ruth Anne (Strobel) Frieden and Michael K. Penrod, Jenny was born on January 11, 1973 in Highland Falls, New York, where her father was stationed at West Point.

Jenny was a member of the Manchester High School class of 1992 and later worked as an office manager at Herman Tool and waitress at Corner Cupboard. She hosted karaoke for six years, nurturing her love of music. Jenny loved decorating for holidays and was the perfect dog mom. She loved all animals, especially her rescued Boston Terriers.

Jenny had a special relationship with her mother, Ruth Anne. The two were more like best friends than mother and daughter. They always cherished their Sunday afternoons playing Yahtzee and listening to Sunday’s Country with Jeff Whitmer.

The loving memory of Jennifer Rebecca Penrod will be forever cherished by her mother, Ruth Anne (Strobel) Frieden and many aunts, uncles and cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Michael K. Penrod; grandparents, Wilbur and Marilee (Boyer) Penrod, Marlan and Melba (Zent) Strobel; uncle, Ronnie Strobel and aunt, Vicki Heater.
