She moved to Hickory, NC in 2010 where she enjoyed spending time with many new friends and five of her great-grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 27 years, John “Chick” Cacchio; son, Steve Hoffman; grandsons, Todd Hoffman, Nate Hoffman and Benjamin Hoffman; and her “best pet ever” Heidi.

Those left to cherish the memories include her sons and daughters-in-law, Dan and Peggie Hoffman, Brad and Becky Hoffman and Ginny Hoffman; grandchildren, Trent Hoffman, Trisha Drewyor, Brooke Hillman, Alison Tompkins, Chad Hoffman, Nikki Hoffman and many nieces and nephews. Jeanette developed a special bond with her great-grandchildren, Lexie, Hayden, Kinsley, Harper, Arlie and Jeremiah. She will be missed by all.

A special thank you to all of her concerned caregivers at Conover Nursing and Rehab. A private graveside service will be held at a later date at Saint Joseph Cemetery in Lockbourne Ohio.
