Jennifer "Jenn" Louise (Krall) Burnett

January 9, 1973 — August 18, 2023


Jennifer “Jenn” Louise (Krall) Burnett, age 50, of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, died at home and surrounded by her loving family on Friday, August 18, 2023, after a battle with cancer.  Jenn was born on Tuesday, January 9, 1973, in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.  

Jenn’s survivors include her two cherished sons: Carson B. Burnett and Brooks K. Burnett; her mother, Kathleen Mish of Enola; her father, Steven E. Krall, Sr. of Lebanon; her stepmother, Barbara Darkes of Camp Hill; her grandmother, Ruth T. Mish; her former spouse and friend, Carson J. Burnett of New Cumberland; and her three siblings: Jessica E. Kreider and her husband, Greg, Julia Ann Krall, and Steven E. Krall, Jr.  

Jenn was sweet, loving, compassionate, dear, and kind – just a few of her endearing qualities.  Lovely in every respect, always happy to see you, and always more concerned about others than herself.  Jenn loved relationships.  She deeply enjoyed being surrounded by and keeping in touch with family and an extensive network of friends and colleagues.  Jenn was naturally someone you wanted to get to know and quickly came to love.  The most important of her relationships arrived 15 and 12 years ago – her sons, Carson and Brooks.  They have since been her everything.  There was nothing she did not and would not have given up for them.  They made her so happy and proud, every minute.  Jenn was passionate about her career.  After graduating from Lebanon Senior High in 1990 and receiving her Bachelor of Science from Penn State University in 1994, she began her more than 25-year career in pharmaceutical sales.  She could talk circles around most with her medical knowledge and terms.  Some of Jenn’s favorites included vacationing at beach destinations like Cape May and Turks and Caicos; country music and Pitbull – all at the same time; summertime, peonies, the color pink; and everything Lilly Pulitzer.  A beautiful person with a beautiful soul, she will be dearly missed by all, most especially her boys.  

All are welcome to join Jenn’s family at her Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, starting at 12:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 225 Salt Road, Enola, PA 17025; with Reverend Robert Yohe celebrating.  A graveside service and burial in Mechanicsburg Cemetery will immediately follow the Mass of Christian Burial.  Honored to be pallbearers are: Steven E. Krall Sr, Carson J. M. Burnett, Greg Kreider, William W. Mish III, John Gable, and Steven E. Krall Jr.  Jenn’s family will be greeting guests during a reception celebrating Jenn’s life at Buhrig’s Gathering Place, 25 East Main Street, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055, (717) 766-3421 (next to Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory), on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Over 100 parking spaces are available; just look for the “Buhrig” parking signs in all of the parking lots.  Jenn’s family encourages those who are unable to attend the services to join them for this time of food and fellowship.
