Obituary of Anna Browne Jenner

Anna Browne Jenner, age 86 passed peacefully Saturday January 25th, 2020 at Penn Yan Manor Nursing home. She lived an interesting, active and productive life. Because her father was in the RAF, Anna was born in Egypt and raised in England during WWII. After the war she met and married Edward Jenner Sr. an officer stationed in England. She was active in British theater before immigrating to the Finger Lakes region of New York where they raised a family at their homestead on Seneca Lake. She spent her free time, walking, swimming and reading. She was a talented visual artist, writer and avid gardener but most of all she was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Dearly missed will be the infinite conversations over tea and cookies, wine and cheese or as the candles burned down long after the dinner dishes were cleared. Passionate about writing, Anna wrote for the stage, radio and published two novels, the second she finished in 2019. In respect to Anna’s wishes there will be no calling hours or service. Anna is survived by her sister, Julia Browne Jackson of Philadelphia. Her children: Edward Jenner Jr., Peter (Gail) Jenner, Susan Jenner and Madilienne (Johnny) Adams, and her extra son Craig Horning. Her grandchildren: Michael (Kirsten) Champlin, Lynn (Jonathan) Erario, Frank (Tegan) Jenner, Frank (Susan) Johnson, Craig (Gayle) Johnson and five great grandchildren, Chloe, Olivia, Alexandra, Lucas and Eli.
