Remembering Olga Jennings

Hello ISLE family!

Our own Mercy Jennings wants everyone to remember Olga Jennings, her dear Mother. Olga passed away this year at the age of 95. Olga was very active in supporting her family and others with special needs.

Olga was the mother of three children and a devoted husband to Joe. Her son, Joe Jr. was a great friend of mine. Joe was born with Down Syndrome and passed away several years ago. Olga was born in Cuba and lived in Youngstown most of her life. She was a great cook and baker (her empanadas were the best I’ve ever tasted). The Jennings’ cat, Tippy, still lives at Farmer Casey’s Ranch.

Here, Olga is seen in 2014 with her son in law (our own) Jimmy “Polka Kid” Pezzone. We miss you Olga! We know you are in heaven with Joe Gallagher!

Peace and love,
Jimmy Sutman
Director of ISLE
