Jennie was born at Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. She was born into the Heral Family that grew to parent 10 children. In Arkansas at that time they struggled with poverty, and moved to Rockford, Illinois. Jennie attended schools in Rockford, and graduated in the top 10 percent of her large high school class.

She met Jerry Raedeke in 1979 and they were married on January 25, 1983. After living in Wisconsin they came sight unseen to Enterprise where Jerry served as Pastor of the Community Church. Over the years Jennie developed dementia and later was well cared for at Wildflower Lodge in LaGrande where she passed away peacefully on Feb 7, 2019. A memorial service is planned for in the future.
