Jeanette was a wonderful Mother to all of us, through the good and not so good times. She loved my Daddy unconditionally. Jeannette was one of the best and good persons I will ever know. My love to Edward and Linda, as well as her whole family.

Jeanette was Good through and through. Salt of the Earth. I have many fond memories of her growing up... her chicken and dumplings and of course her pound cake! My love to Linda and Edward at this sad time. Rest In Peace Jeanette. You are loved and missed.
