Heaven has a new soul. Jeanette was one of the most compassionate, patient, caring souls I have had the joy of working with in the far past at Limestone. She was a dedicated person and efficient. Always willing to help and go that extra mile. I smile when I think of her. She will be truly missed.

I had the pleasure of knowing Jeanette for many years. She was such a caring and compassionate lady. I observed her as she lovingly cared for patients at Lakeshore Nursing Home, and later years at The Oaks. A beautiful lady inside and out. Rest In Peace sweet lady.
