Jeannie moved to Placerville, CA and opened a book store in The Old Soda Works Factory. She dedicated her free time to working with the troubled youth. Her biggest dream was to build a retreat for the kids. Sadly her dream was not able to be fulfilled.
Jeannie was proceeded in death by her husband Smitty, the love of her life. Later Spencer came into her life and was a loving partner. Also her father, Pete Pietrosh, who lost his life to cancer and brothers John and Wayne. Jeannie is survived by her loving mother Betty, her brother Koko & family, Brother Arthur & family, daughter Shelly, granddaughters Kelsey, Kyley, great-grandson Scotter, and many relatives & friends.
Jeannie was a kindred spirit to many. Her heart was pure and she gave her love freely.
Jeannie will be missed by all of those she touched with her kindness. "We'll see you on the other side". A celebration of life will be held at 12:00 PM on August 16, 2014 at the club house across from the Pietrosh Residence.
