Margaret "Marge" A. Jennemann, age 89, entered into rest on Friday, April 6, 2012 at Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Crystal City, Missouri, which was appropriate, because she spent the majority of her career at that very hospital. Marge was born to the late Leonard & Ida (Pendelton) Walgren in St. Louis, Missouri on September 20, 1922. She went on to complete Nursing School and eventually became the first full-time Director of Nursing for Jefferson Memorial Hospital, as it was known then. She was also responsible for the Visiting Nurses Services for the hospital, which was a program she started from the ground up.

She also managed to marry her late husband, Robert C. Jennemann, and raise three lovely children. Marge was active in the community, belonging to the American Nurses Association, a member of the First United Methodist Church and W.S.C.S. (womens) at Church.

She is survived by her loving family which includes a son, Robert (Donna) Jennemann of Dittmer; daughters: Marilyn (Joe) Davis of Jefferson City and Christine Rogers of Crystal City; 5 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and brother, Windorf Walgren.

Pastor Steve Richardson will officate the service.
