Jenny married Dan Beitz on September 7, 1996 in Redwood Falls. They later moved to Marshall, Wisconsin, where they raised their twin children, Hallie and Walker. Jenny lived her life with a positive attitude and inspired so many to do the same. She brightened any room with her smile and sense of humor. Jenny knew how to make people laugh and was the queen of having a good time. She loved to dance and would look forward to seeing local bands perform in the area. She was strong willed and her determination and courage was inspirational to all. 

Jenny will be missed by her husband, Dan of Marshall; children, Hallie and Walker (Olivia Gimsbach); brother, Patrick (Kerri) Sutton of Ramsey, MN; nephew, Jack Sutton; niece, Lindsey Sutton; aunt and uncle, Bill and Chris Sutton; cousins, Blake Sutton, Roger, Steve, and Dan Weiland; other relatives and so many special friends. She was preceded in death by her grandparents; parents; aunts and uncles.

Jenny was passionate about the importance of being an organ donor and would encourage all to do the same. If you desire to do something in her name, donating life would be what she would want.
