Dear Troy and Tracy....

It seems like just days ago I spoke to your mother over the phone at St E.

I&m oh so sorry for the loss of your dear mother; Jeanette was special to me and we were going to get together this year in Ft Wayne. My house sold all of a sudden and I moved to Colorado.

Your mother spoke of you both and about going to your children&s games; I remember going to one a few years ago.

Please let me know if I can do anything for you....long distance.

I&ll continue to lift you up to Jesus in my prayers.

Much love,

Judi (Tina&s mother)

Jeanette was my best friend. I met her when we hired her to work at the Speech and Hearing Clinic at Purdue University. I was her supervisor. I was only 18 and she was 29. That was 36 years ago. She was always a great worker and such a positive person. She was kind, caring, funny, and a wonderful mother, daughter, wife, sister, grandmother and friend.

I have so many great memories of her. Sitting at the kitchen table playing cards with her and the kids, bowling together, working together, drinking coffee and laying out in the sun and getting fried before we knew it was bad for us. We would go out to Dale and Bessy&s and stop by to see Jay. I was always included like I was family. I think I spent more time at her house than my own. She was my Matron of Honor at my wedding and she was there for one of my pregnancies and she loved my son, Matt. We spent so much time together she was as close as a sister. I can&t remember any bad times, I just remember we laughed a lot, had fun with Tracy and Troy, and I knew she was always there. I can&t begin to describe my anguish when I moved to Florida. I didn&t know what I would do without her.

Time passed and the distance was great but I always continued to think of her and love her. A picture of Jeanette with my son and Blacky the cat has been on the wall in my home for all these years. When I look at old pictures, they just make me smile. Over time, we stopped calling as sometimes happens, but recently we reconnected and it was like we were never apart. I am so thankful she called me. She was so proud of her children and grandchildren and I could just feel how close she felt to them.

I will always cherish our friendship. I know how difficult this is going to be for her family and I wish for them to remember the wonderful times like I will. She will be sorely missed, but I am thankful she was a part of my life.

I wrote this as a tribute to the person I remember. I send my most heartfelt sympathies to everyone who loved her and hope their pain is not too difficult. She was a truly special person. Remember the good times and know that she lived her life as she wanted. She was fulfilled to be a mother and a grandmother. I know she would understand your grief but I also know she would want you to put your grief aside and live happy lives. My wish for all who loved her is that the pain will become less. She will always be remembered in my heart. I loved her then and I love her still. I can&t say goodbye because she is still with me.

Tracy and Troy I am so very, very sorry for your loss.

Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To Jeanette&s Family:

I am so saddened to hear of losing Jeanette. We were friends in high school - she was sweet and loaned me her prom dress so I could go to the senior prom. We also worked at Purdue at the Chemistry Dept.for a year before I moved to LA. I shared a house with Peggy in 1964 before I married. We had dinner with Jeanette at Christmas in Frankfort - so glad she was my friend and I got to spend time with her after all those years. My sympathies go to all of her family.

Dear Jeanette&s family, I am deeply saddened to hear about Jeanette. Please accept my most sincere sympathy. While I have not kept in touch all these years with her I have had Jeanette in my thoughts so many times. Growing up we, as cousins, spent a lot of time together mostly on her family&s farm. I so often go back and remember how much fun we had together in the hayloft, dressing up and just running around the farm. I never could though like the milk(warm) straight from the cow. Jeanette was so much fun and a very good, kind friend to me. I will never forget Jeanette and will always keep her in my heart. May God give each of you the strength and peace to help you through this difficult time. Sending my love and prayers, Cheryl
