During her working life she shared a love for music, recreational boating and touring many places around the world with her husband until his passing in the late 1970’s. She made many life long friends during this time. Jeanette in her retirement enjoyed life. She was very caring and compassionate to her family and did her best to keep in touch with her friends. Jeanette Mary Hilliard touched many hearts during her life. Her passing has left a void in the hearts of many. This void will now be filled with the fond loving memories of those whom were blessed with being a part of her life while she was with us all. For now, she is in Heaven surrounded by the loved ones that had passed before her. Those that have survived her now have a new angel watching over us all. As per Jeanette’s request she will be buried along side her husband in a private service. She further requested that no formal service be arranged. She would prefer for family and friends to gather amongst themselves and enjoy a lunch or dinner in honor of her life. She has further requested that if desired donations to the Heart and Stroke foundation can be made.
