Jeanette truly loved spending her time in Boca Raton, FL and was at her happiest looking out at the ocean and on the golf course. She was a Member of the Mill River Country Club for over 45years and the Boca Raton Resort and Club; where she formed many lifelong friendships. Jeanette published her own book entitled, Behind the Tears -: I Can See The Light, which was a collection of poems and thoughts.
Jeanette was an extremely courageous, brave, kind and loving person; she always gave of herself to help others. She volunteered in her earlier years for the Rape Crisis Hotline, Hospice and was a volunteer EMT for both Trumbull and Stratford.
But above all her roles and accomplishments in life none was greater than that of wife, mother and grandmother. She was the pillar of strength that everyone looked up to especially her children and grandchildren. Her smile lit up a room when they were all together. The unconditional love she gave and the values she taught will forever live in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. She will be deeply missed.
