She was a supporter of strong political beliefs. Jeanette loved going out to eat and cooking. She could even cook breakfast in her sleep. She was very artistic and enjoyed refinishing furniture and going on Sunday afternoon rides.  She was happiest seeing her children and grandchildren succeed. She loved family gatherings and a big party.  In her latest years, she enjoyed caring for her cat, Kitty that brought her much joy.
