When I think of Jeanette, the word that comes to mind first and foremost is family. Family was so important to Jeanette. She was immensely proud of her children and grandchildren. She cherished her time most, when it was spent with family. It did not matter if it was just hanging at home watching TV, chatting over coffee, cooking or family events. As long as she was with her family, that was what mattered most.

Please accept my condolences. You are all in my thoughts as you navigate this tough time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Love, April Reynolds Curtin
