Better known as Betty Jane or BJ, she graduated from Mercy School of Nursing in Baltimore, married Raymond K. Jenny, and moved to Annapolis to raise her family. During this time she continued to periodically work as an OR (operating room) nurse and stay active in the community and church.

Once an empty nester, she moved from Annapolis to the Eastern Shore and then Florida. A couple of years were spent in New Jersey before finally returning to Annapolis. She was a member of the Republican Women, Red Hat Society, and GFWC Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs. An avid reader, she enjoyed playing cards, dominos, and bingo.
