Jeanette was always the kindness woman I have ever known. When I was working at State Farm and I went to the clinic not feeling well, every employee that walked into the clinic was important. It didn't matter what the situation was. You were always someone she wanted to help. As a family member, she always knew how to make you laugh. Her sense of humor was infectious. We will miss you Jeanette, "Grannie". You are so loved ❤. I know that you will be playing cards with Mom soon.

I remember the time when our family was invited to Jeanette's house for the Thanksgiving meal in Greeley. Her familyhad all gathered for the feast so we used card tables to seat everyone. We had such a delightful time and enjoyed getting to know the family.

I remember Jeanette’s kindness to the lady’s she played cards with. If they could no longer drive Jeanette would pick them up and take them. I admired her ability at an older age to get out and do her walking around bittersweet park. She was such a special lady and will be missed.

I too was a State Farmer...back in 1964. One week out of high school. Remember having a nurse in the huilding... she happened to be very kind toward us newbies. Very tall! She had this chuckle...sorry for your loss.

I called Jeanette not to long ago. I didn’t hear back. She probably didn’t recognize the number because I used my cell phone and she wouldn’t recognize the number. What can I say. This is quite a blow. I remember Grandpa always said “Get an education. That’s the one thing no one can take from you.” and Jeanette did. I miss Jeanette.
