I can not express how much your family means to me. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Jeanie is her gentle smile and wonderful hugs. She welcomed me into your family and always made me feel welcome during those Otterbein College years away from home. You all hold a special place in my heart and in the heart of our family. Continued prayers. With love.

Dear Don and Lori, My deepest condolences for your loss. Working with her for 19 years gave me life lessons in kindness, generosity and humanity. She was an exceptional human being, a true friend as well as a Teacher to her students and to me.

What a wonderful, fun-loving and beautiful gal. Loved her with all my heart. Best roomie @ Otterbein ever. Put away the books & turned out the lights regularly as I was (STUDYING). Have missed her charm & laughs.
