I remember Jeanie in school as "Kenny's sister", but never had the pleasure of knowing her. My heart goes out to the Wyatt & Stevens family. So very sorry for your loss.

I used to work at the hospital in EVS/housekeeping. There was a group of us , we met Jeanie while cleaning the Patient Financial building. We would chat with her when she worked late or when she would be waiting for her son to pick her up. It was always nice to see her, she was always pleasant or happy. For her last birthday we surprised her with a little goodie bag , she was so touched, that was a good memory. She really was a beautiful sweet lady. She will be missed by so many

I worked with Jeanie at the hospital. She was so sweet and will be missed. She was one of the best schedulers.

Thad, I miss your mom very much. I worked beside her and every day she had me giggling with her stories and little jokes. She was a smart lady and always striving to see every patient was scheduled properly. We could ask her anything and she went out of her way to help those around her. You were the joy of her life and gave her much to be proud of.

How can someone who you have not stayed in steady contact with have such a place in your heart that this world's loss tears your heart to pieces? Because she is JEANIE!! The best friend I ever had..my soul sister! Thad, I have never known another Mom who was so proud of and loved her son so much. We haven't talked lots in lots of years but whenever we did, you were always the first one she told me about. Kenny, Angie and Mary Emma...I have so many memories with Jeanie and one of you are almost always there. Mary Emma....Angdada never eats pumpkin pie that she does not think of you. Jeanie was the most real person I have ever know. As I watch FB and read everyone's comments, I know I am only one of many who's lives she made so much better with her love, smile, humor, smarts and a heart too big for this world. Our loss is truly heaven's gain!!!
