Brockett, Jeanette Beall

Jeanette Beall Brockett, 94, passed away peacefully on May 22, 2017. She was married in 1945 to William H. Brockett (Major USAF, retired) for 65 years until his death Dec. 17, 2010. They were stationed in Japan, England and many US bases before Bill's retirement in 1963 brought them to Albuquerque, NM.

Together they raised four children, Sherry, Bill, Kim, and Steve, and experienced the joy of grandchildren, Jenn, Dan, Mike, Amy, Kelsey and Nate, and great-grandchildren Jason, Ashley Marie, and Koen, along with the antics of various family dogs.

There were many things Jeanette enjoyed but nothing as much as home, family and flowers. She enjoyed decorating and caring for their home and yard, where there were always beautiful flowers, especially roses, a large, productive vegetable garden and fruit trees. They entertained year round with wonderful food for family and friends, often on the patio and poolside.

Jeanette also enjoyed crocheting and was an avid and expert, self-taught bridge player, eventually teaching classes in both. Always competitive, she loved board games and cards, and in later life taught herself to play interactive computer games. She lived independently in her home until last year.

A family memorial will be held at Santa Fe National Cemetery at a later date.
