Jeanette loved to bake, sew, gardening, and canning. She volunteered countless hours at Christ the King School mending books. One of her passions was going fishing with Andrew and she received a few awards for the largest fish.
Jeanette had a strong faith, which showed by her kindness, love to others, and by giving of herself. She was a prayer warrior.
