Jennifer Anne Healy, 48, of Hinsdale passed away March 4, 2020, with her family by her side after a 20-month-long battle with metastatic breast cancer.

Jennifer was born in 1971 in Manhassett, N.Y., to Elizabeth and Morton Levy. She grew up in Huntington, N.Y., and received a bachelor's from Boston College and an MBA from Fordham University. Her professional career took her from the accounting department at Coach Leatherware in New York City, to the finance department at Bristol Myers Squibb and then through a series of marketing roles at Clairol, Maybelline, Mott's, Unilever and finally on a Chicagoland adventure to Kraft-Heinz in 2016.

Jennifer possessed a great mind, an even better personality, a sense of adventure and a tremendous love for friends, family and sandy beaches. She was witty, intelligent, conscientious, positive, determined, fun and not above jumping off a bar in Grand Cayman into the Caribbean Sea for a post-dinner swim while dealing with the first symptoms of metastatic disease (video proof exists). She tolerated her husband's interest in golf, adored everything about her children, delighted in her friends from grade school, high school, college, and beyond and could never get enough of the beach in Naples, Fla.

Her family grieves but knows she is finally unburdened and at peace in a better place.

She is survived by her husband, George Healy; her three children, Charlie, George Jr. and Jane; her mother, Elizabeth; her sister, Cara (Patrick) Puzzuoli; her three nieces; her six nephews; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

A funeral was held March 11 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in White Plains, N.Y.

Interment was at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, N.Y. A memorial service will be held in Hinsdale this spring.

In lieu of flowers, memorials in may be made to Wellness House, 131 N. County Line Road, Hinsdale, IL 60521; or Gilda's Club of Westchester, 80 Maple Ave., White Plains, NY 10601.

Sullivan Funeral Home in Hinsdale handled the arrangements.
