Dear Michelle, Roger, Thomas and family,
What memories or words can anyone share with you about the remarkable person your mom was? She was a true gem and I know I am so blessed to say I got to know her! I worked with her at Purity Services, Inc. during my high school years . I learned very quickly how to keep up with her and how everything should be " done right". She was always smiling when I saw her and she would give an encouraging word when needed. I think of the last time I saw her at Alfred's wake. She hadn't changed and it was so nice to give her a hug. May the Lord continue to comfort your hearts during this difficult time. And when the holidays, birthdays, and special days come your way, please remember those times with Jeannette and smile. Only because she would have wanted it that way. She was such a love!

Michael and I want to express our heartfelt condolences to Michelle, Roger, Tom and their families. Auntie Jeanette will always have a very special place in my heart! She was always so quiet and meek...until you folded a blanket with her at Purity Services where I worked with her throughout my high school years. Then she became a drill sergeant giving instructions on how to fold a blanket without leaving the edges hanging out! We were all afraid of her! But outside of work she was the kindest, sweetest person you would ever want to meet. She was my Mom’s best buddy and they loved to go bargain shopping together which inevitably ended with a trip to Friendly’s. I can picture Mom and Auntie Jeanette together once again enjoying a “heavenly” sundae! We will miss you terribly Auntie!

Dear Michelle, Roger, Tom and families....so sorry for your loss. Until my mom, Norma, couldn't get around anymore in 2017, due to health, for a number of years we would visit with Mom's sister Rita in the morning in Dartmouth, and then often on the way back would stop at Aunt Jeanette's, or Aunt Theresa's, or Aunt Georgette's, either at their homes, or at care facilities for Georgette and Jeanette later years.
With Aunt Jeanette, we would either bring her to, or get take-out from Friendly's in Fairhaven for her beloved sundae ice creams. She didn't like to eat much else, but did love her sundaes, and oh how she would want us to stay and stay, but later we still had the drive back to Dennis on the Cape.
I'm sorry I cannot attend the services. I am at very high risk (71; cancer in lungs, liver, probable stomach; and low immunities from it) if exposed to covid virus in any way so cannot be among any group of people, otherwise would be there.
We enjoyed the visits Mom and I had with her, and my parents often visited Roger and Jeanette in earlier years. We lost my mom 2 yrs ago last week (6/5/18) and miss her much. Again, sorrow for your loss.
