    I was so sorry to hear of Jeannie's passing. I had missed seeing her around town the last years. She was such a lovely and caring lady. She was so good to our son when she worked with Dr. Sorensen in Fremont. My thoughts and prayers are with you all and especially Bev as she was in LeRoy's class.
    With sympathy, Janis

    I am so sorry. I had the privilege to work in OB with Jeannie for several years. She became a dear friend as well as co- worker. She was kind, compassionate, and fun all rolled into one. She had a very deep love for her family and was so proud of each one. She will be missed by many.

    My deepest sympathy to you all at this difficult time. What a sweetheart Jeannie was! My mom and her were the best of friends and I truly admired their long and lasting friendship. They had so much fun together and made the best of memories!

    I’m sure they are reunited again and enjoying every minute of their heavenly reunion. That makes me smile!

    Sending love…. Pam

    I’m so sorry to hear of Jeanine’s passing. She was a wonderful friend to my parents (Margie and Art McCarty). Jeanine was such a joy and I loved getting to know her while visiting my parents at Sterling Ridge. My mom will miss her dearly. May you find comfort in your beautiful memories and knowledge she is now resting in the loving arms of God.
