Jeanette had a love for animals especially birds and cats. She loved the Lord and read scripture daily. She had a gregarious laugh and always greeted others with a hug and a "Hi Dawlin'." She was a secretary for a furniture store in her young adult years and spent most of her time as a stay at home mom. She volunteered at a local nursing home reading to the residents and making crafts for others. She also enjoyed knitting and crocheting. She received the most joy from spending time with her friends and family.
