Jeanette attended Goldey Beacom College and worked at DuPont for two and a half years while her husband served in World War II. Jeanette was a faithful follower of Jesus. She volunteered for over 50 years at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, as well as volunteering at the Manor House from the time it opened until just a few years ago. She also volunteered at St. John’s UMC in many different areas.

She was an avid card and game player, and she enjoyed traveling with her late husband Barney. Jeanette touched many lives and will always be remembered for her kindness, positive attitude, and sense of humor.
