Jennifer L. (Tormey) McNeil 42 of Ballston Spa, passed away peacefully Saturday, December 7, 2013 at her home after a courageous 619 day fight with pancreatic cancer. Born in Rochester, NY, on September 29, 1971 she was a graduate of Fairport High School and the Rochester Institute of Technology. She moved to Ballston Spa in 1999 and was a travel manager for AAA Northway.
Jennifer was always happy and full of life. She always put everyone else before her and would help anyone she could. She enjoyed traveling, visiting new places, being outside whether it was on a boat, snow skiing or just sitting on the patio. Jennifer’s greatest joy was spending time with her kids and family.
Jennifer is survived by her husband, Donald McNeil and their children, Jessica and Ryan; mother and dad, Nancy and Art Chase of Fairport, NY, father and stepmother, John and Paula Tormey of Old Forge, NY, sisters, Coleen Iovino of Hilton, NY and Sheila Enedy (Thomas) of Rochester, NY; stepbrothers, Andrew Golden (Bonnie) of Walworth, NY and Sean Golden (Amy) of Auburn, CA; and several nieces and nephews.
