Ron, Jon and Amanda,
We want you to know that we think Jeanne’s Celebration on Saturday was the best! Jeanne was such a wonderful, generous, caring person. She had the personality to make people laugh, but, most of all, to always feel welcome and included. Some day we’ll get to see that smile and hear her laugh again. Our prayers continue for your family.

It was my pleasure to know Jeanne when I first took my husband, Mark, to the Shepherd's Center
Breaktime Club on Monday mornings beginning in 2003 until July 2006. He was eager to go each week where he felt at home with the wonderful volunteers. It was a blessing for him, and for me
during those years, I'm sure Jeannie's good food and bright smile to welcome him helped him to be at peace there. Later, I volunteered at the Breaktime Club, and got to know all of the volunteers; it was a good feeling to be a part of this caring group. Jeannie helped me to know the ropes in the kitchen at Blue Ridge Methodist Church, and I enjoyed cooking too during my years as a volunteer.
She was missed at Breaktime, and I was saddened to hear of her passing. My condolences and prayers are with her family.

I loved Jeanne for so many reasons but the first that comes to mind was her endless smile. She'd light up any room, any gathering or group. Actually I don't think I can ever remember her without that big loving smile. Perhaps only in the last few years.
Her love for the kids / youth at Blue Ridge Church always warmed my heart. She'd do anything for those kids and often did! Without hesitation she'd accompanying them on all their trips and work camps providing them with some fabulous home cooked meals. And they all loved her right back.
For years she was a member of the Women's Bible Study and Issues Group where we all shared some of our inner most secrets. Our motto being copied after Vegas: What you hear here, stays here! We shared so many laughs and good times. I'm attaching a photo, one of my favorite of Jeanne at one or our Christmas luncheons at Hereford House in Indep. We always had a special Christmas luncheon sharing our love for each other as we celebrate the holiday season. Jeanne was across the table from me - and I grabbed her at a beautiful moment.
I attended the service today and it was lovely. Just exactly as Jeanne would have wanted it. Was so good to see Ron and he looked so good. I know he's going to miss her terribly but they had many wonderful, blessed years together, even though the last few were difficult. Ron - I wish you the very best and pray that God will hold you in his loving arms and grant you peace, just as he does Jeanne today. - Dona Meyer

Jeanne was a wonderful, faithful and kind friend. Nothing was too much trouble to prepare for a party. She would plan it , make the costumes, or drive two hours to pick them up. Always good at decorating and a good cook she was.
The wonderful memories of the many years we went to Las Vegas with the Browns and the Armstrongs. We spent many an hour around the quarter crap table with a lot of street people, having a ball.
I could go on and on. Jeanne brings a smile to my face and makes my heart warm. She was the best.
Love,
Paula and John

My best memory of Jeanne is from our 25th anniversary cruise. It was wonderful to spend time with so many of our friends. The boat was not so good, they spent the whole week trying to repair the pool, but it is still one of our favorite cruises.

We were both so blessed to have Jeannie in our lives in our time at Blue Ridge Methodist. Linda remembers how dedicated she was in whatever she did. She loved to play the bells, and we would laugh when I would point my baton at her for a cue---she pretended she didn't like that at all! Hoot spent many years on youth work camps with her. She was always so pleasant and cheerful with a big smile on her face. She loved the kids and was such a wonderful chef. They called her "Cookie." She always made sure she had Spam for Hoot. The world needs more people like Jeannie.

Jeanne was a dear friend to many and she so enjoyed life. I was always amazed at the energy she had for so many activities. I feel honored to have been in our 2 table bridge group with Jeanne for a number of years. She was an awesome bridge player and it was a treat to be in Jeanne and Ron's home to get a delicious sampling of Jeanne's cooking and hospitality. Jeanne was well known at Blue Ridge Methodist UMC for her willingness to help in so many ways. Jeanne will always be remembered as a wonderful Christian lady and a friend to so many.

Jeanne was definitely a "one of a kind" friend! She was so much fun to be around especially as a RedHatter. We experienced several years of Fall Branson weekends trips and lots of Chief's watch parties together. Jeanne was determined to make a "cook" out of me and we shared a fun day making Ronnie's Moms Fudge Recipe and then later how to make her "signature" Pineapple Upside Down cake!! We always looked forward to Work Camp because we knew Jeanne was going to be there in the kitchen!!
We sure miss her.

It was my privilege to volunteer with Jeannie at Break Time Club on Mondays. It was a very rewarding experience and the older adults loved her bubbly personality and the yummy luncheons she prepared for us. The picture is of Bridge Time Club volunteers one Christmas.

I also enjoyed a bridge club with Jeannie and she always had special treats at her house.

She was famous at church for her help at church camps and the youth loved her enthusiasm and the good food.

We all loved her and miss her. Helen Anderson

When I think of Jeannie, I have a smile on my face. She always had a twinkle in her eye and brought joy to others. She was a wonderful cook and a good decorator of the room at church. She opened her home for hospitality and delicious soup and pie. I will miss her smiling face!
