My siblings and I grew up with Jenny as our neighbour on Royal Avenue. I remember every Halloween going to her house first and she always gave us our favourite - a little box of raisins:) She also always helped our family out in a pinch. My family still likes to tell the story of when I locked myself in my room age 5, and because my mom couldn't hear me downstairs I called my grandmother for help, she called Jenny, and Jenny actually came over, rang the doorbell and told my parents when they answered 'your daughter is stuck in her room please go save her!'

We send our sincerest condolences to the Berson and Monk families on the passing of Jennie. She has been a wonderful grandmother to Kim. We have had the pleasure of Jennie in our lives for 24 years. She will remain alive in all of the lives she has touched. She will be missed. “Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep” by Mary Frye Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. (Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die!) With deepest sympathy. Kimberly Wiseman-Berson and Melvina Wiseman (Mother-in-law of Jordan Berson)

Our sincerest condolences to Malkie, Joel and family. I remember Jenny primarily as a sweet lady. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. She guarded her independence with a passion. She never asked for help, as she wanted to do everything herself so as not put anyone out. During the early 1940's, when I was only a baby, my family shared an apartment with Jennie and Hymie for about a year. Apartments were hard to find then because of the war. I still have some old photo prints that Hymie took at that time, that bring back memories. I will miss her. Our thoughts are with her though.

Dear Malka, Joel and families. Our most sincere condolences to the family. WOW how I loved your beloved mom. What a wonder she was, always smiling and telling jokes. I met her a couple of years ago in the fruit store and begged to drive her home with her parcels...absolutely not, the bus drops her off in front of her building! So independent, and a pleasure to speak to whenever the occasion arose. Of course the past year has been hard for everyone as visiting was non existent. She lived a full and wonderful live always bragging about her beautiful grandchildren. She was able to fill in the missing links of the family tree I was working on and the stories would go on for hours. Jennie you were a beautiful and memorable part of the large Monk family. You will be missed. Brenda, Danny & Goldie
