    We send our prayers for the family and loved ones during this season of loss. Jennie was a most precious person. I always admired her love for God and people. She was a true testimony of how to love your life for Christ. I can just imagine her now, walking that golden street, as she used to walk the earthly streets winning souls for Christ, except this time she is seeing many souls she led to Christ and is with the Lord Himself. It’s true what they say, “Heaven is sounding sweeter with you there.” I know she will be greatly missed, but we have a blessed hope of seeing her again in her new, glorified body. Sending our love, The Simon Miller Family.

    Sister Jennie touched the lives of so many people. Sister Kathy and I always were blessed to have Sister Jennie and Brother Mark in our home and in church. She fought a good fight, she kept the faith , she finished her course. She received her crown of righteousness. Shes waiting for us to get home. God bless you all. May the peace of God that passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds thru Christ Jesus.

    My dear family ~ What a wonderful mother you had. I and the whole family loved Jennie and all of you so much. Many memories of times together when you lived out in the country from Higginsville. Jennie knew how to make the best popcorn, smothered with butter. She even visited my deceased husband, Lloyd and me in Eden Prairie, MN when we lived there. She loved to sing sweet songs about Jesus!! She loved Him so. Now she and all those who have gone before, is praising the Lord. I loved her so. Myrna Weiland

    Our dear family of Jennie Luetjen, we love you all and are so thankful that Jennie is in Heaven with her Jesus, along with Mark and Dale. We live streamed her service and it was so wonderful. We shall always remember Jennie when you all lived outside of Higginsville and we would come and visit. She made the best popcorn with tons of butter. We also saw her here when Dale brought her to see us at McAuley Terrace apts. in Johnston, IA, suburb of Des Moines, IA. What a time of rejoicing. Always great friends. We shall always treasure her in our hearts. Love from the Weiland family
