I always loved when Miss Jeannette came into Dollar General when I worked there. She always had a smile on that would light up the room. Prayers of comfort for the Patin Family.

Very fine lady I had the privilege of knowing for many years. I would love to see her at ball games because she always had a nice smile on her face. She loved chasing those grand kids around and following all their accomplishments. Condolences to the family from the Sam Moore Family!

Mrs Patin and my mom (Louise Bertrand) were friends for years. Iā€™m writing this for my mom. They talked and visited regularly. I was with my mom the morning she got the news. It was a very sad day. But my mom said she knew Jeanette was wearing her red dress now. That was always a inside joke with them two. ā¤ļøā¤ļø She will be missed dearly.

Love the Bertrand family
