Jenette R. Gretzinger

Rochester – Jenette Redfield Gretzinger, March 10, 2023. Peacefully, age 89. Predeceased by her husband of 62 years, Richard Gretzinger, her parents, Robert H. Redfield and Clarissa Newman, and her sister, Helen Sinnett.

Jenette was born July 17, 1933 in Olean, New York, and lived in Smethport, Pennsylvania enjoying small town life and graduating from Smethport High School.

Jenette is survived by her children, Stephen Gretzinger, Robert (Catherine) Gretzinger, Karen (Jim) Fenton, William (Tina) Gretzinger, and Chris Gretzinger; grandchildren Christopher (Emily), Amanda (Graig), Daniel, Elizabeth, Michael, Joshua, Lauren, Jon, Jack and Jonathan; great grandchildren Evelyn, Eleanor, Samuel, Margaret, and William; sister and brother Lisbeth Olton and Robert H. Redfield, Jr., and two brothers-in-law, two sisters-in-law, and many nieces and nephews.

Before starting her family, Jenette worked at Eastman Kodak as a statistician after graduating from Allegheny College. After her kids were all in school, she worked at various branches of Eastman Savings and Loan.

Jenette expertly loved and supported her children, their spouses, and her grandchildren when young and in adulthood. Always making each one feel noticed, important, and accepted, she was generous and selfless. She spent countless hours with her grandchildren reading, playing, and encouraging their imaginations. She will be deeply missed.

Jenette lived in the town of Greece for over 60 years and served her community by working as a volunteer for the AARP Northwest Chapter, The Greece Community Partners, and was co-founder with her husband Richard of The Greece Summer Festival.

Family and friends are invited to calling hours March 24, 2023 from 5-7pm at New Comer Funeral Home, 2636 Ridgeway Avenue. A Celebration of Life will be held on March 25 at 11am at Trinity Episcopal Church, 3450 W. Ridge Road, Rochester, New York 14626. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Jenette’s name.
