Janine Marie Cheatham Bounds
1964 - 2021
Janine Marie Cheatham, 57, passed away on Thursday, October 7, 2021 in Humble, Texas after a many year struggle with mental, physical, and emotional health following the death of her son.

Janine was born on September 30, 1964. She was raised in The Woodlands, Texas and spent summers on her family's farm in Enid, Oklahoma. Anyone who knew Janine would attest to her stubborn, spitfire personality. One of her favorite stories to tell was from her amateur bull riding days when she was put on a blind bull - the meanest bull they had - and won a set of spurs that she was always ready to show off.

She loved fishing and spent many days at Rollover Pass fishing for redfish and speckled trout, and crabbing. She was also an excellent cook - when she remembered that she was cooking. Janine had a big heart for animals and was always known to have a house full of them, from cats, dogs, sugar gliders, and birds, to rescued baby deer and raccoons that were waiting to go to a wildlife rehabber.

Janine had many jobs in her life, but her most beloved job was working for Cindy and Dave Plummer at Woodland Art and Frame, where she did in fact use fractions every day despite always complaining to her teachers, "Fractions? When am I ever going to use THOSE?!". The Frame Shop was her second family and her twins grew up napping behind the front counter and "hole filling" picture frames.

Janine is preceded in death by her loving parents, Jack and Enid Cheatham, and son, Bobby Jackson. She is survived by her children, Sarah and JT Bounds; brothers, Jim and wife Bonita, and Joe and wife Crissy; nephew Chance Cheatham; nieces Makenzie Cheatham and Johanna Cheatham; grandson Hunter Jackson and his mom Allison Wells; and friend Larry Zientek.

Arrangements for a memorial service will be announced at a later date.

Janine was unlike anyone I have ever met, and she will remain such because there will never be another like her. She could offer up a one-liner or a phrase that would take you aback while at the same time offering a hug letting you know she loved you but was also happy to tease you. She was a hard worker and proud mother. She was my friend and I will miss her. May her family and friends find comfort in the times and memories we were able to share together.
