Jeanette, it was always a joy to walk into church and to see your smiling face. Your care and concern for the church family was a joy to see. We are so glad that you are now with your Lord, with no more pain and no more sorrow. See you again someday! Have the most blessed Christmas in Heaven with our Savior King!

I taught with Jeanette at Forest Home Ave. School for many years and she was a wonderful person. We had so much fun playing sheepshead during our lunch hour. Jeanette was kind and thoughtful and never spoke an evil word. She loved her family very much. My condolences to her family and especially to her beloved Ed.

I was a troubled teen. I spent many of my days, being suspended from school, with her and Grandpa.
Grandma was always very patient with me and always kind. She helped me get through my educational struggles.
Grandma was one of the smartest persons I’ve ever known. She had a way to teach even the most difficult student, myself included. I never, ever, saw her lose her temper or get mad.
Grandma had the patience of a saint!
And even to the end Grandma was sharp as a tack!
She always went out of her way to make sure all of her family members, and there were so many of us, felt special.
She knew us all so well and made sure we knew it with her very special and personal (thoughtful) gifts.
I could write a book about what a wonderful person she was!
She will be dearly missed!
I love you Grandma Knuth, Jenny!!!!
Please watch over us, I will see you again someday, and on that day my heart will rejoice!
