Jeannine was a graduate of Palmyra High School in Palmyra, Mo. She was a stay-at-home mom, who took great joy in raising her family. She later worked in the stockroom at J.C. Penney at the Quincy Mall.  

Jeannine was a church youth group and Awana leader at Calvary Baptist Church in Quincy.  

She had a goofy sense of humor, loved Christmas and enjoyed taking care of people. If you ever had the opportunity to try her homemade rolls and cookies, you know they were delicious and filled with love.

Jeannine was devoted to her family, and she loved her children and was very proud of them all. Jeannine took great joy in spoiling her seven grandchildren and showering them with her love. She liked to say, “What happens at Grandma’s, stays at Grandma’s!”
