A celebration of the life of Dr. Charlotte Louise Jenny, 58, will be Oct. 19 at the community center in Tupelo beginning at noon.

Dr. Jenny died Aug. 16, 2013, at a Spokane hospital. She was born Oct. 22, 1954, to Walter and Eula Mae (Hink) Jenny in Shawnee.

She was baptized and confirmed at St. John Lutheran Church in Shawnee. She graduated as salutatorian from Shawnee High School in 1972, and received her bachelor’s degree in philosophy with honors from Oklahoma State University in 1976. She studied medicine at the OU Health Sciences Center and graduated in 1980. Since then, Dr. Jenny practiced psychiatry in Oklahoma in public and private positions, and worked as a locum tenens psychiatrist in several states, including Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Michigan. A long-time resident of Norman, she joined the staff of the Behavioral Health Service at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Spokane in October 2012.

Her parents preceded her in death in 2008 and 2009.

Survivors include her brother and sister-in-law, Walter and Rose Ann Jenny of Edmond; three aunts, Mary Charlotte (Jenny) Rice of Tulsa, Emma Kathryn (Hink) Risner of Bartlesville, and Mary Louise (Hink) Melton of Puyallup, Wash.; and many cousins and their families.

Memorials may be made to benefit homeless veterans through the VA Medical Center in Spokane, or the Department of Philosophy at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. At her request, Dr. Jenny’s body was donated for medical research and education. Her cremains will be interred next to her parents at Resthaven Cemetery in Shawnee.
