Jeannette 'Jeanne ' Justice
December 19, 1931 - February 25, 2021
Jeanne went "home" on February 25, 2021 to join friends and family who made the trip before her. She was born in Pensacola, Florida, to Mary and Ernest Guirey and moved to San Diego around the age of two. She graduated from San Diego High School in 1949. She Married George F. Reese, and they had two children George and Anita "Francesca" Reese.Jeanne married her second husband, Robert B. Justice, in 1973. Robert had three children, Guy, Clayton and Julie. Jeanne worked as the office manager of Robert's chiropractic practice until they retired in 1991. They enjoyed many cruises and trips to Europe.One of her greatest joys was her granddaughters, Nicolette Jeannette born to George and Katherine Reese and Cassidy Ann, Carly Marie and Danica Drew born to Julie and Greg Barnicle.Jeanne often said no one would remember her as a good cook, but if they were to remember her, hopefully, they would remember how much she loved them.We promise you, Mom/Nana, we will.

To the best mother a child, now a 63 year old adult, could ever want.
You guided us through life with your optimistic attitude, understanding and love. First mothers day without you. We miss you.
Love, George

Jeannie was my mom Paula's best friend & I enjoyed her stories a lot. She was always talking about her family, Jeannie loved them so much. Now she's at piece because I know she was in a great deal of pain!

I’m not sure where to begin since there are so many memories growing up at your house with my sisters, Grandaddy, and Nicolette. However, what I remember most is your love and patience for Grandaddy. I know you being there meant the world to my mom and her brothers and we can’t thank you enough the sacrifices you made in order to put him first.

In addition to your love/support of Grandaddy, I remember your love of elephants and your particular fondness for your jade elephants. You had them all set up along the fireplace (smallest to largest) and one day I was playing with them (which I’m sure I wasn’t supposed to) and I broke the baby elephant. I remember going/running to Grandaddy, worried and scared (may have been crying too), and he helped me hid the evidence (lol), but if I recall you weren’t that mad. I believe you even shared a chocolate kiss or two with me (which was a BIG deal; anyone who knows Nana knows how much chocolate means to her and rarely did she share lol).

Another memory I cherish, is when Nicolette and Carly would play “hide and seek” when we were little. Those brats would actually leave me to hide in your house (for hours) and you would find me and explain that they left me...again...and then we’d play pick up sticks and go find them at the park with the Rocket and of course would lecture them, but this was a common occurrence lol.
I will miss you, Nana. I know you are with Grandaddy and have an endless supply of chocolate. I hope you know how much I did love you.

We will always remember the great sense of humor she brought to family gathering. We will never forget the love and wonderful care she gave our father for so many years when he was sick and fail.

So many memories. It’s hard to know where to begin. You loved birthdays and celebrations but you especially loved Christmas. You even had a musical Christmas tree! Shopping was one of your favorite hobbies so all the gifts you chose were so thoughtful and beautiful. Your love of cats and hummingbirds created some chaotic moments in the backyard for sure. You will be missed by all of us. You were a force to be reckoned with Jeanne. I hope there is bourbon and Diet Coke in Heaven. It could use little shaking up!

Our stepmother, Jeanne, brought many years of humor and laughter to our family gatherings over the years, and gave so much wonderful and loving care to our father for the years he was sick and frail. We will be forever grateful.

You are at peace and out of pain now Jeanne. We will miss you, and will fondly remember our time together.
Whether it was one of so many Sunday afternoons sitting together on the edges of our seats watching our beloved Chargers play (and usually lose), or cruising the high seas to Mexico which we all enjoyed so much.
You would often say that you couldn't cook, but your hamburger bean casserole has always been one of our all-time favorites.
Fair winds and following seas Jeanne. Now you and dad are together once again!
