In July of 2020, Jenice found out she had an aggressive form of cervical cancer. The Ahlberg family, shaken by this news, rallied around Jenice to help her in any way possible. Radiation treatment was rough, and even though the initial tumor was shrinking, we found out that her cancer was stage 4 in August. Her nutrition, energy, and weight dropped to dangerous levels and consistent blood transfusions were needed in order to provide sustainment. A couple weeks before Thanksgiving, she was admitted to the hospital after a particularly rough day spurred a moment of crisis. Thankfully, during the next week of closely watched care and IV nutrition, she was able to start eating again, and improved enough to complete radiation treatments and start immunotherapy. Shortly thereafter, Jenice had the energy to not only be herself again, but also to be present for Thanksgiving and then to plan and produce one more amazing Christmas for her family. We enjoyed days of laughing, baking, family meals, and going for walks around the neighborhood. On the morning of December 29th Jenice went to be with her Lord.
We are grieving for Jenice, and know many of you are as well. Moving forward, her husband Tom needs a way to pay for the total cost of healthcare bills and funeral expenses. We would be blessed if you would consider helping us by donating in memory of Jenice. She was the glue for our family for many years, always praying and providing with an amazing sixth sense for our needs. Her roles stretched from homework helper; themed birthday party guru; “boarding-house-for-anyone-in-need”; all the way to an incredible peacemaker and spiritual guide. Before cancer struck, she partnered with her daughter Aubrey and built an incredibly successful real estate business through Windermere, tackled her fitness with an amazing determination, and never stopped loving us. We will cherish our many memories for the rest of our lives, and will rest knowing that she is free of pain and full of love forever.
