Jeanne was adored by her children and grandchildren and loved her family dearly. She was one of Jehovah’s Witnesses since 1965, and she read her Bible every day. She spoke about her God, Jehovah, to her family and to all whom she met. She was very intelligent, lived her life with high ethical and moral values, and was often described as a sweet and classy lady. Jeanne was a great cook and always had a delicious meal prepared for her family. She worked as a bookkeeper for many years for her husband’s business. Jeanne was the best mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great-grandmother that anyone could ever ask for.  She was a firm believer in the Bible’s teaching of a resurrection. She looked forward to living again on a paradise earth that Jehovah God has promised to restore for all mankind.
