So sorry to hear about Jeanette. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time

Thomas Hazlett; 59th Chief Devil Dog, Military Ord on Jul 20, 2020

Jeanette blessed us with her presence at every Supreme Growl where she worked hours and hours sewing patches on vests and covers, she would have stacks of items on her table and yet somehow she managed to complete each task. The money she collected would be donated to the Children's Hospital Fund. She was an Angel on Earth and now she is one in Heaven. Jeanette, you will forever have a place in the heart of every Dog you met. To Tom, my Deepest Condolences on the loss of Jeanette; I know she will be missed.
Tom Hazlett, 59th Chief Devil Dog

I am sorry to hear about Jeanette's passing. I remember when she would bring all the kids to Elmwood Dr. to the bookmobile every summer. I loved to talk to her about what the kids were reading and all their activities. I was always thrilled to see the family. Now the boys take care of my plumbing problems, and I'm so thankful for them. Prayers to your family.

Rosalie Huebener on Jul 17, 2020

Jeanette was such a good person. I have enjoyed talking with her over the years at the Marine Corps Staff and Conventions. I have really enjoyed listening to her talk about her quilting projects, looking at the photos, and almost yearly, bumping into her at the Paducah Quilt Show. She always was excited about finding a new tool and some really neat fabric. She will be in heaven helping the angels sew on those wings. Be at Peace Jeanette. Tom, you and your family have my deepest sympathies.

Barb Jensen on Jul 17, 2020

Jeanette, I cannot imagine Paducah without you! You were the smiling face that greeted us when we arrived, the best shopper, finding all the coolest quilt devices, the best storyteller, and always the kindest hostess! You were so generous in all your volunteer activities with the veterans, and I know you lived a busy and fulfilling life! Although I did not see you often, I will miss you so much! May God bless you and your family. Barb Jensen

Carlos Fernandez on Jul 16, 2020

What an amazing person Jeanette was. Her love for her family (Tom in particular) and for veterans and the Great River Honor Flight program was unquestionable. The cookies she made for the veterans on the Honor Flight to eat on the trip home was always a bright and memorable spot of the day. I will miss her dearly and want Tom to know he is in my thoughts and prayers. Carlos Fernandez

Mindy Doellman on Jul 15, 2020
