  1. Jeanie was one of the kindest and most generous people I have known in my life. I was blessed to have her as a sister-in-law. She will be profoundly missed.

  2. I would not have known Jeannie had I not joined Tharsday Buble Study. I am so glad I did. It has influenced my life in so many ways. Jeannie led us with grace and provided for her own departure. She will be greatly missed.

  3. I met Jeannie through Thursday Bible Study at First Christian Church. She always made me feel welcome and was such a sweet Christian lady. Prayers for her family.

  4. “Jeans” was a life long friend who enriched my life in so many many ways. She had a full life with a wonderful family and friends who adored her. Be at peace my dear friend. You are holding Richard’s hand now. You will be missed.

  5. I remember when Jeanie was little. She wanted a red car without a top. Aunt Martha got one for christmas. It was really Jamie’s car. My sweet cousin. I will miss her.

  6. Jeanie was such a constant in our church family at Westminster Presbyterian Church. I am sure she had served on every committee through the years. She served our church. She was always there to worship. She sat right behind me. I have missed her during Covid. We have walked with her through celebrations and through difficult days. She continued to walk through the shadows of death knowing, she did not fear, she knew her God was with her. God has healed her broken story. Good bye comes from “May God be with you, Jeanie until we meet again”.

  7. My life long friend was beautiful in every way! Her smiles , her love of family and friends and generosity in all she did… Her laughter was contagious. The good Lord and her family came first…. but the rest of us…. her Dotte girlfriends who originated in Kansas City, Kansas or her Best Friends in Amarillo … We all knew Jeanie adored us…and we adored her.. she will be missed and in our hearts forever.❤️

  8. To me, Jeanie was always a ray of light, whether sitting in a church pew and smiling at me, or leading a group of women in a meeting, or talking about her children. She carried herself with dignity and poise and a caring attitude toward others. I’m so grateful to have known her.

  9. Jeanie’s beauty extended beyond those in direct contact with her. A visible brightness in voices and eyes when she was mentioned was always present. The support, companionship, and love she gave to those I hold dear created a place in my heart of endearment and gratitude. My heartfelt sympathies to her friends and family that are no doubt greatly missing her.

  10. I was stunned when I learned of Jean’s sudden death. She and I grew up in the same neighborhood in Kansas City, Kansas and our mothers were best friends. We were in the same graduating class at Wyandotte High School in Kansas City, Kansas. She and I had continued to keep in touch down through the years — including my HBD wish to her just a couple of weeks ago. Blessing and R-I-P, Jean.

  11. The most inspiring, positive woman I have known. I’ll miss you now and will look forward to the reunion to come.

  12. I will always remember so many fun parties at her house — progressive dinners, Super Bowl parties, Chili making — as part of the WPC youth group. Hurting for Robert and Kerry and your families. She was an embodiment of grace and it will be special to see her spirit live on in her beloved grandkids.

  13. Aunt Jeannie was a sweet soul with an amazing spirit. Being the Matriarch of our family, she was always planning times for us all to get together because she loved her family and fellowship. She will truly be an abscence in our hearts and lives.

  14. I was in shock when I found out she had passed. She was always such a sweet woman to me and our kids.
    Prayers for all of you and may God be with you at this difficult time.
    Greg and Robin Lohden
