I worked with Jeannette at the Health Department and would visit with her when she volunteered at the hospital. Always a sweet soul and when I was going to RN school she was very encouraging. Rest well sweet soul. We have the shift from here.

Janette was one of those beautiful people inside/out. A totally faith filled Catholic Christian, always visiting the sick and nursing home people, doing their nails but mostly lifting spirits. Always nursing everyone! A blessing to call her a FRIEND. She and her husband welcomed my husband and I to Our Lady the first Sunday we came back home to Indiana from the Marine Corp. A lasting bond all these years! Sympathy to her family.
