My Aunt Jeanette will always hold a very special place in my heart.  She and Uncle Gerald were my families guardian angels when we were growing up, the groceries, presents under the tree, taking care of us when we had the measles.   So many fun times too, family dinners, going on vacations with them and Diana (fun memories Diana), all of the fun times when Aunt Jeanette came to Florida.  
I always felt at home in my Aunt Jeanette's house, she had the best snacks, and we never left her house without taking something good to eat home with us.  
I am grateful and so very blessed to have the firstborn daughter of Don and Rebecca Malott to call my aunt. I love you Aunt Jeanette and will miss you and our conversations very much.  

Forever and always in my heart, love, your niece Billie.

Jeanette was a very special lady to Larry and me.  She and Larry had a good natured banter ongoing most of the time and she always had the upper hand.  I loved working hospitality with Jeanette at our church.  She always had food plans under control.  What dear memories of a lovely lady.  We will keep them in our hearts forever.  The best memory is her great love for Jesus.  He was first in her life and she served him well.
Our deepest sympathy to Jeanette’s lovely family.  You were her pride and joy.  
Rest In Peace in the arms of Jesus, dear Jeanette.  Your rewards will be many.
