Jeanninne Chavez Obituary
Chavez, Jeanninne



Jeannine Chavez was called to her heavenly home on January 5, 2016 at the age of 44, surrounded by family and friends. Known for her signature ruby-red lipstick and quick wit, she was always the life of the party. Her ear-to-ear smile lit up any room that she walked into. She remained a kid at heart, always taking an opportunity to watch a cartoon or a romantic comedy and setting the Star Wars theme as her ring tone. She was a sensitive soul who wore her emotions on her sleeve. Her expertise as a police dispatcher and knowledge of the 10-code (both at work and home) left our city a safer place.

Jeannine was preceded in death by her biological son Zack; sister Monika who she referred to as her "other half"; father James; grandmother Lucy; and grandfather Manuel. Much of her heart left with Zack and Monika and we believe she eventually died of that broken heart. She is survived by her mother Rosemary; sisters Audrey, Patricia, Blanca, Alvita, and Lydia; brothers Ryan and Rudy; nephew Santiago; aunts and uncles Becky and Pete, and Anita and Leonard; cousins Brigette and Jessica and a very special cousin Sugie; brother-in-law Joeray; the extended Chavez, Benavidez, and Moya families and many, many caring and loyal friends. Jeannine has left an empty space in the hearts of our family and will be greatly missed.

Services will be held at Victory Outreach, 435 Jefferson SE on Monday at 10:00am. Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 7999 Wyoming NE.
