My Mom was a teenager when Jeanette was born and she used to tell me what a beautiful baby she was. She was beautiful inside and out and remained so her entire life. How fortunate we are to have had her for so long. Rest In Peace, dear, beautiful Jeanette, and May Perpetual Light Shine Upon You. My heart is with you during this difficult time. Much love from Mildred Ivey Peck’s daughter, Anna M Herrera.
