Jenene married Gale Edwards on June 3, 1961 in Jeffersonville and raised their family there.
Jenene worked at the Merchants Bank and later at the Union Bank for many years until her retirement. After their retirement, she and Gale spent a lot of time traveling and especially enjoyed their trip through Yellowstone National Park. They later moved to North Carolina for four years. Returning to Vermont, they lived in Fairfax until Gale’s death in 2012. Jenene later moved to Hyde Park where she lived until her death.
In her younger years she enjoyed fishing and was in a bowling league. She was an avid Red Sox fan, watching every game that she could. She also enjoyed quilting, knitting, and would never say ‘no’ to a car ride and lunch out.
