She was born on mischief night and it showed; Jen was always a prankster. Co-workers were likely to find their offices coated in Vaseline. She was always up for a playful food fight. Always the social butterfly, if Jen wanted you to stay past your shift, your car keys would go missing. She had a love of fireworks: “Duck and cover!” she’d holler as her backyard would erupt in fire. Of course it was all just part of her fun loving nature: she’d throw a backyard party at the drop of a hat just to see her daughters smile. Jen was that kid in school who was excited when the teacher announced a project. Creativity came easily. She’d use her abilities later in life as a manager at the Ark Road Shop Rite Bakery. She loved to fish and caught all the trout her father couldn’t. Eight and a half months pregnant with her due date fast approaching she could still be found with a rod in her hand.
Jen is survived by her daughters, Jenica and Gabriella Gravano; her parents, Woody and Joan Folk, brothers, Brian and Tim Folk and several nieces and nephews; and many victims of her pranks, better known as her friends.
