Joana "Jenny" Momgaudas
September/9/1926 - October/27/2018

Joana (Jenny) Momgaudas, age 92, passed away at Heartland at ProMedica with her family by her side October 27, 2018. Born September 9, 1926 in Vilnius, Lithuania, she lived a long and adventurous life. In Lithuania, she had an arranged marriage where her first daughter, Zita, was created. Her husband was forced to go fight in World War II and she never saw or heard from him again. In an attempt to escape Lithuania, Jenny and her family traveled by foot to Germany where they spent five years in refugee camps. After being granted a sponsor, they arrived in the U.S. in 1951 to begin a new journey in life. That same year, Jenny met and married her husband, Walter Momgaudas. They then went on to create their own family where Jenny gave birth to seven more children. Jenny became a U.S. citizen in 1962, an accomplishment of which she was very proud. She owned and operated Jenny’s Corner Bar on the corner of Franklin and Oakland Streets from 1970 until 1982. That started her cooking career at various establishments until she retired at the age of 82.

In addition to her parents and husbands, Jenny was preceded in death by her eldest child, Zita Zitkuti, and her youngest child, Rita Momgaudas. Jenny is survived by her children, Walter (Earlene) Momgaudas, Nejola (Gene) Booth, Regina (Fred) Momgaudas, Irene (Forest) Bible, Richard (Evelyn) Momgaudas, and Donna O’Neil. Also surviving are a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
