This woman had a servant's heart. Heaven has called home another earthly angel. She helped me get my faith back on track and she always had something positive to say. God always calls the deserving home. She is restored to her best.

Sympathy to surviving family of Jeanette.
My connection to Jeanette goes back to days before marriage, during school years, when Bea was working/owned Snow White Kitchen and the two of them lived on Huestis Ave. What fun we had, spending the night at each others houses, helping Bea if she got too busy. school activities, concerts etc.

Jeanette was a wonderful, kind, compassionate christian woman who loved her Lord and followed His ways all through her life. She raised three loving children that stayed with her throughout all her illness and passing with the same love and compassion that she had modeled all her life.

My deepest sympathies to Anita, Dave and Tom. Your mother must be so very proud of you. Your love and commitment through these trying times has been extraordinary. Lean on your memories and those that love you to get through your grief and know that when God took her into His loving arms this morning I know he said: " Well done good and faithful servant ".
