Paul, Terry, Sue & family, So saddened to read about your Mom's passing but I just feel that she has gone to a better place, no doubt by now running the show! Because in her day she was a force to be reconed with. She was outspoken, determined, opinionated, confident & always promoted her profession of Nursing. She was my mentor, my guardian, she's the reason I persued a career in Public Health. When I filled in for the Gorham town Nurse & had questions, concerns, I called Jeannette. She was always so patient, informative, knowledgeable, encourageing. Over the years we attended many professional seminars & countless social events. I always knew that if I was licky enough to sit at her table there would be lots of laughter! She was so generous with her time always volunteering to help me support Daffodil Day, an ACS special fund raiser. I shall always remember her for her genuine concern for people, for her determined nature & zest for life, her love of the profession of Nursing & the love she had for her family & friends.
My Sincere Sympathy for your loss.
