Jeanette was raised on a farm and was in 4H where she learned many things which she used throughout her life. She often sewed her own dresses and clothing to wear to dances that she attended. Jeanette graduated from Montezuma Cortez High School in 1962. After graduating she married Gerald Jack Johns also from Cortez. Jeanette worked in the school cafeteria, Wheeler's Market, and as a clerk in the veteran's office in town, among others. A few years after marriage Gerald and Jeanette moved to Denver, CO where Gerald was employed by United Airlines. For 30 years she enjoyed the benefits of travel with her husband. Once in Denver, she started her family by giving birth to Glenda Sue in 1965 and Robert Jack in 1967. Gerald's job with the airlines brought them out west to California and the San Fransico International Airport. They bought a house, their son Bruce Rodney(1971) was born, and resided in San Jose almost 3 decades. Jeanette became involved in Church and was an active member of Park Victoria Baptist Church where she was a Sunday School Teacher, and a Church Hostess for several years hosting banquets for hundreds. Her homemade rolls and cinnamon rolls were a congregation favorite. She enjoyed choir and Lady's Bible study as Jeanette had accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior in a faith led life. Jeanette also provided day care services where she cared for children with love and compassion. When she was no longer able to maintain the daycare center, she became a crossing guard for the San Jose Police Department to help children get across the street safely. Jeanette sold Avon and Mary Kay products. She enjoyed being around people. In 1999, Jeanette and Gerald retired and bought a motor home and traveled the United States several times for decades visiting family and friends all over the country. In retirement, they settled in Pahrump, NV as a home base. Jeanette was incredibly talented in her crocheting, cross stich and beading and found joy in teaching others and attending Bead World.
Jeanette was a mother of three, grandmother of 11 and a great grandmother to two granddaughters. She liked to play many games with her family: Cribbage, Pinochle, Hearts, and Mexican Trains. Miniature golf with her grandchildren was a favorite. She crocheted dozens of Afghans as gifts she gave away for newborn and quilts. When not traveling in the lower 48, Jeanette often enjoyed the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands during the month of January and even spent a summer in Alaska RVing. She had several pets she enjoyed through the years. Jeanette survived two different types of cancers as she was a strong and caring person. She laughed and showed she cared to all she met.
A graveside service was held in her honor on February 6, 2024.
