Jeannie you were a delight to know. I always enjoyed seeing you ride your golf cart around the campground. You always had a smile on your face no matter how you felt. You are at peace now and with your beloved CJ. You will be missed.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie but I've been blessed in this life by the friendship of her son, Mike. I wish I could have thanked her for raising such an amazing man. I'm sure she was a lovely woman and she has touched many hearts and will live on in her loved ones memories. I'm sending prayers for her family and friends in their time of healing.

Jeannie was one of my special neighbors at Holiday Island. It was my pleasure to have known such a beautiful woman with such a beautiful smile. I always loved being around her & I was glad when she moved in with her son, Mike. Her whole appearance changed, for the better, when she made the move & I was so happy for her. She will truly be missed & will never be forgotten. Loved you Jeannie!

Mike, there are no great words...I lost my mother in 2012. Take comfort in knowing she is free and happy and her and your father created and raised a wonderful man in you. Take time to feel and grieve. If you need me, I am but a phone call away. God bless you. Hugs, Tina

Jeannie / Mom You were such a sweet, caring and loving person. You touched many hearts throughout your life and will truly be missed by each and every one. Thank you for being an amazing grandmother to Nic & Kaya. I'm truly sure that Nic will cherish the memories that he will always have of the many conversations and stories you shared with him throughout the past few months. I will miss you very much but I know you are with CJ in a place where the two of you can now spend eternity together.

Oh .... Mike ....... I'm at a loss as to what to say. Nothing I say will help. It's heart wrenching to lose a loved one. If it's any solace please know I'm here for you and your family. Ms. Jeannie was a wonderful woman to have had the opportunity to know and love. Rest in peace sweet lady.
