Thinking about Aunt Jennie's life brings smiles and sweet memories of the fun times we shared. Our family enjoyed each and every time we were together. Aunt Jennie was a great entertainer. She loved to cook and we loved to partake.  She would bake Cream Cheese Brownies for birthdays. If not brownies, she could bake any cake Pig Picking, German Chocolate, Red Velvet snf always baked with love. Aunt Jennie kept a little book on her dresser with everyone's birthday and anniversary dates. She was quick with a joke and storytelling. Her witty charm was unmatched. She always had us on the edge of our seats anticipating what her next story would be. She liked to order merchandise from mail order catalogs and could find the funniest comical birthday cards. 
Aunt Jennie loved her chocolates. Russell Stover was her favorite boxed candy. Though she wouldn't turn down Whitman's either. She enjoyed her chocolates and coffee in the evening prior to retiring for the evening. Another favorite of hers were Little Debbie's peanut butter wafer cookie covered in chocolate. I agree
Aunt Jennie's home always had that "laundry day" clean fragrance. She told me she used Avon's Perfumed moth crystals. Of course, I had to purchase this for my home. I wanted my home to smell as clean as Aunt Jennie's.
A very special friend in her life was Uncle Roger Gray Averette. They were introduced by a family member who also worked for Liggett & Meyers Tobacco Company. They dated for many years. He passed away in 1973 from having pneumonia. I will always remember how much she loved him and my Aunt Louise.
Aunt Jennie relied on public transportation. She would sometimes walk to where she needed to go. Even to the grocery store or the mall. Back in the day it was Yellow Taxi Cab service in Durham. She was a petite lady and her wardrobe was skirts, blouses and dresses, stockings and dress shoes. Alfred Dunner was the brand she preferred. At home it was housecoats and her Daniel Green slippers. She loved house plants and had a green thumb  I believe she could make any puny plant flourish again.
Ma Haley, or Mrs. Georgia Haley as we called her, was a sweet little lady who Aunt Jennie lived with and was an extra special person in her life whom she loved dearly. So there was Georgia and Virginia living in North Carolina.
As years passed and more life took its place, we were not able to see her as much as we wanted too. She had lived in two different apartments in Durham and moved to a mobile home in the country next door to her brother and sister-in-law.
I loved my Aunt Jennie and she loved me. She was a very special aunt to me, who I am honored to have called her, my Aunt Jennie.

Aunt Jennie had a special great nephew, Kameron. She had a very special place in her heart for him. She always looked forward to,his Christmas gift or Birthday of her favorite pecan delight,there was a certain kind she liked and Kameron always made sure he had her a case of it every time. She just loved him and would always talk about him everytime we got together.
My Mother was like a sister to her instead of a sister-in-law. After she moved to Franklin County my Mother Jean Hill took her everywhere. They went to the grocery store, Walmart, Johnny's BBQ to eat every Friday night and to the Dr. , if she could get her to go. My Mom took care of her for about 19 years, till she was taken to Franklin Oaks, then she visited her as often as she could till she had health problems herself. There is so much more to say, but just know Aunt Jennie, you were really loved.

Jennie Hill, like others have said was a good woman. She loved with her heart. and she loved everyone. No, she did not have children of her own, but she had two special men in her life that were like her own children. Mike and Steve were her children. They went on trips together and when she would come home, she was so excited about it and told everything they did and the places they visited. They visited her often after she moved to Franklin County. They loved her as if she was their family and they had great respect for her. They as well as we, will miss her. Loved and respected.

To my Aunt Jennie, to one of the funniest carefree person's anyone could ever know I remember growing up she would make some of the best magic bars and peanut butter delights anyone had ever tasted. Her friends at Liggett & Myers loved to see her on their birthday she would hook them up with treats. I remember back when I was growing up she knew I liked model cars, she would send me a card with $5 in it so I could get one and then the next time I seen her she would want to see the car that I had built and give me the magic bars and peanut butter delight to finish out my gift. I loved those day's and her so very much. Aunt Jennie you will be loved and missed.

A wonderful woman!! She was always so cheerful, helpful, and loving. She was a grandmother to me. She was never married so had no children, guess that is why she was so giving to me!!! Aunt Jennie was a fabulous storyteller, she would keep your attention and told very interesting stories. She was also very funny and quick with her wit. This woman will always be in my heart. She suffered for a long time, but God needed another angel! Love always!!
