Obituary

Nancy Carolyn Wolfson, 65, of Missoula passed away on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020 at St.Patrick
Hospital, as a result of a pulmonary embolism.

Nancy was born on November 22nd, 1954 at Doctor’s Hospital in New York City. She was the
daughter of Harold Wolfson and Marian Granrud. Nancy was raised in Larchmont, New York and
graduated from nearby Mamaroneck High School. After high school, she attended Coe College and the
Kansas City Art Institute. A fearless traveler, she also took a three month trip through England and
Europe on her own.

Inspired by her maternal grandmother’s stories about her own younger days in Montana, Nancy
decided to pack up an old steamer trunk and relocate to Missoula. There, she worked and attended
college. She graduated from the University of Montana with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art and History.
Survivors include her husband, Edward Jenne, her daughter, Emily, her father, Harold Wolfson, an
uncle, Bertram Wolfson, her brother, Peter Wolfson and his wife Donna and their son Tyler Wolfson, and
several cousins, nephews and nieces. Survivors also include her father and mother-in-laws, Hank and
Frances Jenne, her brothers-in-law and their wives, James and Pyong Jenne, Michael and Adele Jenne,
Steven Jenne and Tammy Jenne and their families.

A service may be announced in the future. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Montana PBS or Montana
Public Radio would be appropriate and welcome.

An avid hiker and cross country skier, life in Montana certainly suited Nancy. She enjoyed the outdoors
and the friendly environment of Missoula. She enjoyed playing guitar and flute. Nancy was also an
accomplished artist and had a small greeting card business.

While skiing at Lee Creek with her friend Pam, she was to meet Ed Jenne, her future husband. In
1989, surrounded by friends and family, they were married in the gazebo at the Historical Museum at
Fort Missoula. A while later, a daughter, Emily, was born. Nancy was a wonderful and dedicated
mother. She enjoyed reading to Emily and also spontaneously creating long and fascinating stories.
Concerned with the environment, Nancy was a founding member of ‘Save Open Space’, a land
conservation group. Being an avid reader, Nancy also organized a book club with her friends and it still
happily continues to meet.

Probably the defining aspect of Nancy and her life would be that she was a very social person. Her
greatest enjoyment came from her family and friends. She was remarkable on how well she stayed
connected with everybody and maintained many long term friendships. Nancy was interesting, lively
and often humorous, however, she was invariably more interested in the other person. She enjoyed
social gatherings and meals with friends. She enjoyed walking downtown for coffee at the ‘Butterfly’,
lunches with Ed or meeting up with Ed’s old military gang. She also very much enjoyed those evenings
spent with their “supper club” friends.

Survivors include her husband, Edward Jenne, her daughter, Emily, her father, Harold Wolfson, an
uncle, Bertram Wolfson, her brother, Peter Wolfson and his wife Donna and their son Tyler Wolfson, and
several cousins, nephews and nieces. Survivors also include her father and mother-in-laws, Hank and
Frances Jenne, her brothers-in-law and their wives, James and Pyong Jenne, Michael and Adele Jenne,
Steven Jenne and Tammy Jenne and their families.

A service may be announced in the future. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Montana PBS or Montana
Public Radio would be appropriate and welcome.
