Jennie Sinden (Yzerman)


In Loving Memory



Mrs. Jennie Sinden of Maple Manor, Tillsonburg and formerly of Delhi, passed away at Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital, on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 in her 97th year. Jennie was an excellent cook, including her memorable sticky chicken, pea soup, plum pudding and sauce, fantastic baking and decorating of shortbread cookies, pies, squares, and homemade applesauce. Her cooking skills were put to the test at harvest time when she worked long hours feeding the harvest gang. She was great at crafts, making sweaters for all the grandkids, hand towels and dish cloths, and Christmas crafts for everyone. Jennie took great pride in her flower beds and hummingbirds that came to it each summer. She enjoyed a good game of cards and spending wonderful time and sharing lots of laughter with her family.
