We we're so sorry to hear about Jeanette's passing. I enjoyed our visits while spending time with my sister Shirley at the Care Center! She always had a smile, was very cheerful and positive. I'm thankful for her being a friend to Shirley and so many others. May your memories help you in the days ahead. Thoughts and prayers for her family. Dennis and Connie Fulton
Judy & Don, we are so sorry for your loss.
Sending hugs and prayers your way
Jeff & Lisa Bahr
