Jeanne was very loving and caring and throughout the years took in anyone who needed her love and attention. Jeanne’s creativity and talent was like no other, over the years she created many beautiful and priceless items for family and friends. If you were lucky enough to receive these lovingly created gifts you meant a lot to Jeanne. One item in particular is still being handed down to new family members in the way of a sweater that Jeanne knitted while her children for still young. She especially loved doing ceramics, but just doing them wasn’t enough for her she also shared her talent with many of her grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Many of us still have gifts that our children made for us with Jeanne’s guidance. Jeanne went to College after her husband’s stroke and earned top of her class in Welding. Due to Job market changes she never had the chance to use her welding skills.
Jeanne loved us all but her greatest joy was a visit from a precious grand or great grandchild, she was GiGi to them. When you talked to her the first thing she tell you about was the latest news about her grandchildren. She also had a very special connection with her grand pups Ryder and Tucker. Jeanne had many friends who she loved and adored. She always had time for you no matter who you were. Jeanne’s passing has left a huge hole in our hearts. She will be forever loved and missed. We will be holding a service for Jeanne this summer.
Love you Mom, you’ll forever be in our hearts.
