Jeanette was full of life, compassion, and a whole lot of spunk. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed the laughter that her children and grandchildren brought to her life. When you showed up at her house no matter who you were, you were always welcome; she never met a stranger. You were greeted with a hug and I Love you. When you left her house your belly was always full and you knew that this special lady was one of a kind. Her faith was something that she kept close to her heart. She never went a day without reading Psalms 23. She was the greatest GMA ever. Her grandkids and great grandkids were her pride and joy. She often would say look at what me and papa started and look at the legacy we are leaving behind. She was a lifelong member of Eastern Star. She leaves behind many lifelong friends including Jimmy and Esther Cook along with many family members. Jeanette will be forever missed but she is now home up in heavens with the rest of her family that have passed on before her. In our family we never say good bye it is always see you later. Rest In Peace to the best woman any of us that were lucky enough to know her.
