I'm very saddened to lose Jeannie. I was a classmate of hers and saw her often around town. We both married "difficult to pronounce" last names, and took great pleasure in teasing each other about them, usually at VERY LOUD ranges! I'll miss that...

To her Loved Ones, may God bless you with Peace and Strength to your Hearts.
