I worked with Jeannie at Brother and she was one of the sweetest people you could meet. There was never a day that she wouldn’t have a smile on her face. Her smile was truly contagious. I enjoyed getting to know Mrs. Jeannie during my time with her at work. My deepest condolences and sympathy goes out to the family and may God bless her family with strength, comfort and peace during this difficult time.
