Although, she lived most of her life in Pilot Point, she never forgot her Georgia and Alabama southern roots. Her childhood roots were poor (but so it was for many during that time). One story she recited was that she went to school with two biscuits dusted with sugar for lunch. Some of the students made fun of her so the teacher made those students trade lunches with her. She always appreciated her life in Texas and did not take for granted the things that she had. She loved keeping an immaculate home where friends and family were always welcome. She might meet you at the door in her barefeet and a glass of sweet tea in her hand. She always wanted hugs all around. Many friends were made during her volleyball playing days and she very much enjoyed those years. Last requests of Jeanette were to be buried with a small volleyball and a fishing rod so she could go fishing with her son Michael when she meets him again.
Thank you to family and friends for your concerns and prayers while Jeanette was ill. Southern Hospice Care and Pilot Point Care Center helped make her final days comfortable for her and her family. Conrad and Rita Boerner would also like to thank Bobbie Jezek for her support and help in so many unmeasurable ways.
