In 1980 they welcomed their first child, Nicholas and their second, Jaymie, in 1983. Her children remember her as a very kind, gentle, and nurturing mother who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Jeanette was an avid basketball fan and enjoyed attending TU basketball games, she also loved to read, and liked taking cruise ship vacations. She absolutely adored anything to do with her kids and grandchildren and loved helping take care of her granddaughters. She appreciated crafting and cross-stitch and she often took Jaymie to the various craft fairs around town to find secret treasures. Although she was not a loud person, she was very compassionate and when she spoke everyone listened because it was very intentional and thoughtful.
