  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Anita. I know Jeannette will be missed by all those that knew her and was a part of her immediate family. I don’t think I have shared this with you, but when I was in junior high your mom was a PE teacher assistant. She taught me for 2 years PE at the old Hephzibah School. She kept us moving always. What a joy it was to know her then and all through these years. We love you Anita so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful mom. I know you will miss her tremendously. Love You

  4. Anita and Cameron, Jeannette will really be missed by my family. She lived across the street from us. She spent many afternoons at my house having cookouts. She was a joy to know and always kept us laughing. She was always so supportive of me and willing to listen to me when I needed to talk to someone. I just stopped by a couple of weeks ago to visit with my granddaughter, Addison. She loved her and my daughter Amber very much. She kept Amber’s picture on her wall for years. I will also miss her lovely cakes. What a woman! Such a good friend to us.
