I always called her Mrs. Agnew. I taught her grand kids, I was friends with her daughters. She always treated me like part of the family. Even with no kids here at Middleton Elementary, she kept in touch with me.
I put a memory on the front marquee at school. She will always be in my heart. I love you Mrs. Agnew!!!!!!!

My abiding sympathy during this time of grief. Jeannie was a dynamic creative force with great love for her family. I wish comfort and peace to those who received so much of her love while she was here.

Dear Agnew Family - I am Lynnie (the god-child of the Grant/Thorpe family). I have such wonderful memories of Jeannie from when I was a little girl. She sured loved her family. She will be missed very much. May God bring you His peace.

Tommy and family. My heart is breaking for all of you. Jeanie and I visited so many times on the phone as well as our wonderful NM trip together. I can't imagine never hearing her laughter again. My deepest sympathy to you and yours.

Tommy, Lynn, Amy, Krista, Ricky and Sabrina: You have a special place in the hearts of the Garden Bobs, even if we've only met Tommy in person. Jeanie was so proud of each and every one of you, and so committed to making your lives happy and fulfilled. I know life will seem very empty without her but I hope loving memories and the comfort of friends will sustain you on your grief journey. Those friends include all of us who met her on AOL and came to know and love her through her messages and in person.

I'll always cherish the memory of my trip to DC over 10 years ago. Jeanie and Sally picked me up at the airport, although we'd never met face to face before. I was sitting at the back of the plane and Sally was having to hold Jeanie back from storming the plane to find me! That was our Jeanie and I will miss that wonderful feisty spirit of hers and the caring and support she invariably offered when I needed it. I'm holding each of you in my heart.

Tommy, Lynn, Amy & kids, My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you during this time. Jeanie holds a spot in my fondest of childhood memories. She was a dear friend to my mom. I thank her for that. I remember how loving and helpful she was and know that she has touched many lives. May she rest in peace now. ^i^

I also am one of Jeanie's online friends. I can't imagine how devastating her loss is to you all right now. I am thinking of you and sending prayers of strength for you all. I have so many good memories of Jeanie and our group trips, I feel so lucky to have known her. With love and sadness,
