Not sure what to say?

Jean was our neighbor in the Brandywine subdivision. She was a sweet lady and will be missed.

Jeanie was both my boss and friend for many years. She taught me so much about how to lead, and how to live. No one knows how many lives she touched, how many people are better people because they were influenced by her. To me she will always be "Miss Chandler". She was an anchor to the Transportation Department at Tyler ISD, even years after she retired some of the veteran drivers still think in terms of "What would Miss Chandler do in this situation?" In more recent...

I will truly miss this special, special lady! She was not only a friend she was my boss. You always knew where you stood with her there was no guessing, and you had to take the good with the bad, she would give you a talk if she thought it would help. She had a heart of gold when it came to children, and the things she would do for them if they were in need.
Even today at work her name is brought up on a weekly basis! We truly missed her and her way of running the department. I have...

We miss our friend so very much. Her visits were always a joyful time we spent laughing, talking, playing cards and just sitting on the porch having coffee. When I lost my sister, Jeannie's friend, she became closer in my life. For that I will forever be grateful. It is hard to know we will never have the visits and telephone conversations again but for sure she is with our Heavenly Father. Prayers for her family. God's speed are greatly missed.

She was a "ROCK" God planted in my life and helped me in many ways. I feel like she helped me to mature in my life in many ways. She Supervised our Department like "Mission Impossible" and there were blessings and miracles performed daily. She once said she was an Actress, Counsellor, Doctor and Detective to many she wore many "coats" and was a woman I talk about often and will forever hold close in my heart! I will forever love you & will see you at the...

We were devastated to hear of Jeanie's passing. She was like a member of our family for as long as I can remember and will be greatly missed.

My thoughts and prayers for the Family!

Jeanie was a great, long-time friend who was always there when needed. She was a firm believer in Christ, and she would share this love openly. She loved to laugh, to make you laugh, and to listen if you just wanted to talk. We became close friends in 2016, filling a void that we both had after losing my mother-in-law, a good friend to both of us. Jeanie will always be someone that our family will miss. Much love and hugs to all who loved her.
