From the nephew's perspective. She was a loving and caring aunt. Sometimes frustrating and stubborn coworker. But most of all she was a good and kind person. She instilled good habits on us as kids. From being kind to everyone to washing our hands, she helped form our childhoods. We always looked forward to going over to auntie's house and the adventures that came with it. Words cannot describe the way she affected our lives as kids. Later in life we worked side by side on jobs for the business. A hard worker in the field and a better than most. There were frustrating times, but they are outweighed by the amount of fond memories she brought. From making rules for me as a kid to listening to my rules for the business, she was a big part of my life. A part I never will forget, how can I? Louder and larger than life, she will be remembered as the loving caring auntie she was.

Jeannie was my aunt. She was very involved in my life growing up. She gave me my first taste of coffee (with sugar and cream😉), she took me to see my first Nascar race and she taught me how to bake cakes.

Jeanie was a very special person to me. We were friends from the time we were in seventh grade through high school and beyond. She truly was a kind, gentle and genuine person. I was always proud to call her my friend. The world is a bit emptier with her passing. Godspeed and rest in peace Jeanie.
