Obituary for Jennie Marie Havens

Jennie Marie Havens, 76 of Gettysburg, PA lost her long battle with kidney disease, lymphoma and congestive heart failure on Wednesday, June 28, 2023 at her home surrounded by her beloved family. Born September 5, 1946 in Washington, DC she was the daughter of the late Jennie H. (Tucker) Pace Buck and James L. Pace. Jennie leaves behind her husband of fifty eight years, soul mate and love of her life, Ernest J. Havens, Sr. The two have been inseparable since their first meeting in the 8th grade. Jennie also leaves behind her three babies and their families, which she adored and devoted her life to being the glue which binds them. Ernest J. Havens, Jr. (Tina Hewitt), Rodney M. Havens (Tina Fissel Havens) and Daniel W. Havens (Jean Hance Havens), four grandchildren, Jessica M. Havens, Joshua M. Havens (Lauren E. Shaak Havens), Quinn J. Havens (Rachel Havens) and Jada A. Havens, four great grandsons, Tanner, Barrett, Leo and Elliott Havens, a great granddaughter, Myla Andrews, her sister, Virginia M. Pace Bowman and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a grandson, Aryia Havens. Jennie worked for the Unites States Government alongside Ernest right out of high school. As life progressed and their family grew, the two moved from Gaithersburg and Rockville, MD to Gettysburg for Ernest’s job. Jennie became a full-time homemaker with a short position within the Lutheran Home of Gettysburg. Jennie’s full time position was that of Chief Executive Officer of the Havens household as a fulltime homemaker. Her greatest joy as a homemaker was taking care of the love of her love Ernest, her three sons and their families. Jennie enjoyed spending time with her family, grandchildren and great grandbabies, Hallmark and Elvis movies, decorating, working with flowers, crabbing, reading, playing games on her tablet while surfing the Web, traveling, crafting, cleaning and socializing with her many beloved friends. She also had a special place in her heart for animals of all kinds even though she was allergic to most. Jennie favorite color was blue though her aura was that of pink, which was an unconditional outpouring of love to all that she knew, met and loved. Jennie Marie was an amazing loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother and friend that will be missed by all. Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday, July 3, 2023 at the Monahan Funeral Home in Gettysburg, PA. Interment will follow the service in the Evergreen Cemetery. A Viewing will be held on Sunday, July 2, 2023 from 6:00-8:00 PM at the funeral home. A special thank you to all the family, friends, doctors, Gettysburg Hospital Staff and Promedica-Heartland Hospice for their support and fantastic care to Jennie and our family throughout the transformation of our angel on earth to our guardian angel in heaven.
