Dear Roger and Family,
Your loss is so great. Let me share just a little. Jeanette was a joyful and welcoming figure as she stood at Epiphany's door on Sundaysl She knew each person and called each by name, sending them into Mass with smiles on their faces. God has called Jeanette by name and welcomes her into heaven with a smile on his face.

Years ago Jeanette was one of the first neighbors I met when I moved to the neighborhood, she literally welcomed me with open arms, it was then I knew I had made the right move. Never without a smile, a compliment, or a gracious wave. She was a positive force of nature - and one very classy lady. Jeanette you will be missed - but never forgotten. I suppose you've been called to tend to the heavenly gardens. Take care.

Roger and family, we were so sorry to hear about Jeanette. She was always a joy to be around. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. I (Vera) attended mass last Sunday in St. Louis with my daughter, Paula, at St. Joseph's Church on Manchester and saw on the bulletin that Fr. Santen was the Pastor there.
