Obituary for Jenny Marshal

Obituary for Jenny Rogers Marshall
On May 23rd 2018 we lost the most loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother (Jen Jen), sister and friend. Jenny Rogers Marshall died peacefully at her home in Louisville, Ky. surrounded by her family at the age of 72.
Jenny is survived by her loving husband of 31 years, Thom Marshall, her mother Mary Jo Rogers, her brothers, Mark Rogers, Shaun (Ann) Rogers, her Children, Shay (Courtney) Shearer and Shad (Diane) Shearer, and a step-daughter, Jane Vincent. Jenny leaves behind 5 Grandchildren, which were the light of her life, Logan, Baylor and Eloise Shearer, as well as Savannah and Roscoe Vincent, and many other cousins, nieces and nephews. Her father, Eugene Lavender Rogers, preceded her in death.
Jenny was born on December 30, 1945 in Cookeville, TN to Gene and Mary Jo Rogers. She graduated from Tennessee Tech University in 1966 with a degree in Education and received her Masters Degree in secondary education from the university of Louisville in 1971. Jenny committed her career to the protection and education of children. She taught Kindergarten at Dehaven Church in Lagrange, KY, art at Liberty Elementary in Goshen, KY and was a Child advocate for abused children for the Commonwealth Attorneys office in Louisville, KY. She was a legendary teacher at St. Francis School for 25 years, teaching 1st and 2nd grade. The passion and love that she brought to her classroom allowed her to positively impact so many lives and she kept close relationships with many of those students and their families until the end of her life. Jenny also served on many boards, all dedicated to enriching childhood education and welfare.
Jenny was an accomplished teacher and gardener, she had a special way of making flowers and people bloom, and tomatoes grow. She had a special relationship with birds, especially hummingbirds; they would hover in front of her as if in conversation and her yard was always filled with birds nests full of eggs, it seemed they wanted their hatchlings to also be nurtured by Jenny. She was also a life-long lover of giraffes and dragonflies.
She spent a lifetime bringing her own unique light into the world and will be missed by all that had the good fortune of knowing her. She was an excellent cook, and a profound baker of butter-filled bread (Jen-Jen bread) and the family is pleased to announce her loving Grandson Logan who is currently practicing the craft will carry on this tradition.
Her grandson wrote a poem last Christmas that perhaps captures things perfectly: The sky, the moon, the earth, the universe and white castle hamburgers are all very important to me but the thing that overcomes them all is you.
Memorial service 2:30 pm Thursday May 31st at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church, 6710 Wolf Pen Branch Road. Visitation 1:00 pm Thursday until time of service. A reception will be held from 4-6 at Louisville Country Club. All are welcome to attend (especially former students) and celebrate Jenny’s life.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St Francis School (Goshen campus) St. Francis in the Fields Church, or Hosparus of Louisville.
