Jeanie will be missed by her nephews and nieces, extended family members, and a multitude of dear friends. Jeanie was a lover of life and of people. She was a helper, a doer, a caretaker, and zealous Florida State fan. She loved spending time in the outdoors, especially on Florida’s beaches and reveled in God’s creation. Her firm faith in Christ led to a life of service in her church and community, which impacted many. Above all, Jeanie wanted others to know the fullness of life that only comes through Christ.
