Jennifer (Jenny) Erin Tien, beloved daughter of Barbara and Bob, and cherished sister of Julia, all of Calgary, passed away unexpectedly at the Foothills Medical Centre on Saturday, August 20, 2005 at the age of 24 years, after complications from surgery. Throughout her stay in hospital she was embraced by the love of her family. Her courage and determination was inspirational.
Behind Jenny’s blue eyes and beautiful smile was a sensitive and caring soul who was always considerate of others. Jenny was looking forward to grad school and a career as a Psychologist. Her love of travel took her to L.A., London, Paris, Boston, Las Vegas and Sydney. Memories her family will always cherish are watching glaciers calve in Alaska, picking seashells on the beaches of Tasmania, parasailing in Hawaii and cycling the San Juan Islands, together with Jenny.
