Jennifer C. Silk, age 68, of Valencia, formerly of Washington, D.C., passed away on Tuesday morning, October 22, 2019 at UPMC Passavant Hospital in McCandless Twp.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama on December 30, 1950, she was the daughter of Irene Dziegieleski Silk and the late Thomas Silk.

We will never forget our beloved Jenny! After graduating from St. Francis High School in Hawaii and obtaining a degree in biological heath at Penn State, she had a brilliant career as a health scientist for OSHA in Washington, D.C.

Her love and generosity extended to her family, many dear friends and to all the pets she owned and adopted over the years. She leaves behind Casey, her beloved Schnauzer.

Music, painting, genealogy, gardening, knitting, reading, writing, and photography, contributed to her full and wonderful life. We will love her forever! 

Surviving are her mother, Irene Silk of San Antonio, TX., two brothers, John Silk (Cathy) of Franklin, IN and Thomas Silk (Carolyn) of New Braunfels, TX, two nieces, Kristen Eason and Bridget Banta, and three nephews, Jason, Justin and Zachary Silk .
