Such a sweet, kind, respect person. I was a classmate of hers. In later years we would run into each other at reunions or in Canandaigua. Too young for her to pass. Condolences to her family.

Annette Hoban from Penn Yan NY on Apr. 15, 2024

Loved by her classmates. Kindness and grace. Gone too soon my friend. Condolences to Steve and Rita. May you rest in peace.

We were so fortunate to have had her as a friend. She will be sorely missed. But, her sense of humor and warmth of personality will be with us forever.

So sorry for the loss of Jeanette. I remember her with lots of funny wit and smarts back in the Marcus Whitman days. I have to say she helped me through some of those science classes back then.
God Bless Jeanette and thoughts & prayers to all the family.

I wish that I had more time to get to know Jeannette. We became neighbors just 3 years ago. We shared a deep love of animals, particularly cats. Jeannette and Steve were so generous with their help and knowledge. I will miss her very much going forward and learning from so many things that she could teach me, especially about flowers gardening. RIP Jeannette, my friend.
