I am so sorry for your loss. Jeannette was one of a kind. Full of laughter and fun. A wonderful person. Everyone has some very good memories to hold in their hearts forever. Prayers for all of you.

Dear Dean and Family,
I was saddened to read of Jeanettes passing. My deepest sympathy. Jeanette was a loving person whose voice exuded smiles and caring. Our paths rarely passed after our school years, but from time to time when we saw each other I felt she was still the warm caring person of my memory.

Dean & Family
I am so sad at the passing of my very best friend. As Jeanette would always say to everyone we have been friends since our first grade in school. I have so many great memories of all the things we done together when we were young and in school and after.
Later in life Jeanette,Dean,Russ and me would go on our special little surprise outings,movie nights and eating out at different places.
My biggest regret is that we were not able to be with her or see her as of late because of this bad virus. God has a special place for a loving happy person like you and He also made sure you were able to have your services in your church. I will be missing you always my dearest friend.

Dean, Maria and Bob, Steve and Marie, Ryan, and other relatives. My heart felt sympathy for all of you. I could write a book of the joys of knowing Jeanette. I treasure the shopping trips we had when Dean was working in Springfield. She had a thing for purses, and she very seldom came home without a new purse! Dean, she, and I would try out new places to eat, and usually ended up at Pizza Hut. We were anxiously waiting for Spring, and hopefully getting to resume going to go out again! Jeanette loved my daughter, and treated her as one of her own children. I know she is in Heaven passing out her huge hugs and being her feisty self. I will miss her terribly. Rest peacefully, my sweet friend!

Dean, Maria, Steven and families. I was so sorry to hear of Jeanette's passing. I remember her coming into Denning's many years ago and being such a cut up. Then I had the pleasure of getting to know her even more as we shared a grandson and grew as friends thru church. Always a smile, a hug or a big friendly wave whenever we saw each other. She will be missed by many and kept tucked in our hearts and memories with love. Peace to you my friend.

dean and families, Jeanette was our classmate and thinking of her brings back all the school memories and what fun we had together. Slumber parties, class trip to Washing D.C. What fun stories we had to share later in life. Our sincere condolences go out to all of you. We all have things to share about Jeanette and they all make hearts smile. Hugs to all like she always gave out. William and Linda Schmidt

Dean and family. So so sorry to hear about Jeanette passing. Havent seen you Dean or Jeanette since moving back to Ohio. I remember in our younger years when we would all gather around Janet and Ralphs house. You were such a ornery one and we had lots of laughs together. I will cherish those memories. May God be with you Dean and the family and give you peace. Rest us peace my dear Jeanette
