I worked with Jeanette for many years at Safety Kleen. She was my "mother", as my parents had moved to Kentucky when I was 19 years old. Jeanette had so many words of wisdom and such a meek soul. I loved Jeanette as if she were my very own mother. What a wonderful lady and friend that God blessed me with. She is with the Lord now, no pain, no suffering, just looking down on her family and smiling and being proud. She will forever be remembered as one terrific and beautiful person! My deepest sympathy goes out to the love of her life, Dick, and to her children. She will always be remembered as a sensational person!

My condolence to the family for the loss of Jeanette. I remember a special day while visiting in Fort Wayne that was made most enjoyable because of her graciousness.

I am so sorry to see that Jeanette has passed. I work at Little Turtle Library and she was always such a pleasure to talk to and see. We had a great time discussing books and whatever came to mind and I've missed her greatly. She always had such a great attitude and was so warm and friendly, it made my day when she came in. Again, I am so sorry for her loss, I know she'll be missed by all who know her.

Oh Jeanette, I could write a book of my memories and thoughts of you and the whole family. My prayers are with Dick (Burl) and the entire family. I always said Dick was my "big bro" even though we were cousins. Two of my fondest memories were when we came down with our grandson Jason and the fellows all took him to the parade over Labor Day. while they were gone you cooked up a storm and baked delicious pies. The other great memory was when all of you came up here and we went out to eat and we laughed because the food at the restaurant was so bad, especially David's flat pancakes. They did close and never reopened. I love you Jeanette and the crazy hubby of yours and all the kids. Now you are fellowshipping with my mom and Dad and my sister. My love and prayers are with all the family!
