Such a lovely person.  I believe it was an English class and maybe history that we had together.  Jeanette was always so bubbly and friendly.  I had the opportunity to work with her on the 50 yr.  reunion and she was her usual bubbly self and a real go getter.  Had the opportunity to spend a little time with she and Tommy working on the reunion. Such a great couple.  My prayers are with the family.

Jeanette and I worked on several reunions together.  She is a very nice, sweet wonderful person, mother and wife.  We shared friendships in high school and I know she had a wonderful marriage and family.  I will miss working on the next reunion with her.   God bless her husband, Tommy, her family and children.  Marilyn

I worked with Jeanette on our recent reunions.  She was always happy, smiling and willing to do anything to help.  Jeanette's family and friends are in my prayers.

I did not meet Jeanette until the 40th-50th reunion plannings and the 1st Saturday lunches that came from those meetings.  She impressed me as a fireball with such a beautiful love story with Tommy.  Her contributions were immeasurable and her spirit inimitable.  Sweet blessings upon her family.  I will always see her infectious smile!
