Jeanette will forever be remembered for her  love and care for everyone she encountered. Her bright smile and gentle nature brought comfort to those in need and joy to those around her. She possessed a remarkable ability to make others feel special. 

Among her many passions, Jeanette found great joy in playing Bingo, going to the casino, cooking delicious meals, traveling, and hosting vibrant Easter barbecues for family and friends. These gatherings were not only an opportunity to show her love for cooking, but also a reflection of the deep love she had for her loved ones. 

Jeanette's spiritual faith played an integral role in her life. She delighted in attending Mass regularly and found peace and time for prayer. Her devotion extended beyond herself as she fervently interceded for those in need. 

One of Jeanette's proudest accomplishments was leading the Bingo games during the church fair. She dedicated countless hours to ensure that each event was a success, bringing joy and camaraderie to all who participated. Her commitment to this cherished tradition enriched the bonds within the community and showcased her dedication.

As we bid farewell to Jeanette, we reflect on the immense impact she had on our lives. Her kindness, love, and ever-present smile will forever be remembered. Though our hearts mourn her loss, let us also celebrate the beautiful life she lived and the enduring legacy she leaves behind.
