Bettina Lindsay Jenney of Pennsylvania's Derry Meeting Farm passed away at her Greenville, Delaware, home Dec. 22 at the age of 86 from cancer. Among the horses bred by Derry Meeting were breed-shaping sire Danzig (in partnership with W. S. Farish III) and English and Irish champion Mrs. Penny (Great Nephew {GB}). After her husband, Marshall Jenney, passed away in 2000, Jenney managed the farm and bred Canadian and French champion Mrs. Lindsay (Theatrical {Ire}), who was named after her mother.

Jenney is survived by daughters Lindsay Scott of Wilmington, Delaware, and Sally Scott of Baltimore, Maryland; four grandchildren; one great-grandchild; stepdaughters Annie Jenney Darrow of Baltimore, Maryland, and Laura Jenney Roe of Bozeman, Montana, and their five children; and her sister, Seton Lindsay O'Reilly of Litchfield, Connecticut.

A memorial service will be held at Christ Church Christiana Hundred in Wilmington Jan. 9 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Newfound Lake Region Association, 10 North Main Street, Unit 1, Bristol, NH 03222.
