Jeannie was an incredible woman who had the heart of an angel. She has made an everlasting impact on all who she has come in contact with. She was generous, kind, compassionate and a loving soul, but she also knew how to give you the best comebacks and couldn’t resist a hilarious dirty joke. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
