  5. Jeanie, it’s so sad that you are gone . But I guess God needed a special angel and you was the one he had pick, the grandbabies we share together are really going to miss you so much as you was a huge part of there life’s, it’s sad that a wonderful loving grandma and mother to my daughter has gone now but rest assured you will be missed deeply rest easy my friend 😥

  6. Going to miss u so much I wish I called u more and talked . But your still best ex sister inlaw . But I will always love you . Praying for your family and friends . 💜💐

  7. I’m so going to miss our talks. I have known Jenny since we where kids. So, so many stories and happy memories. I always called you my big-little sister and you will forever be that. I so remember through out our lives the different things we done. Some I promise will stay a secret between you, me and Sandy. I am so glad I had you in my life and us sharing all the things we have done from playing tag outside as kids to crazy ass teenagers who experienced some crazy stuff, too having our babies, to getting married, thru so many lows to only come out stronger and wiser. I’m sitting here with tears flowing because I have truly lost my sister. I love you Jenny so much. You will forever be in my heart. RIP no more pain.

  8. Mark I am so sorry for your loss! Jeannie was so sweet and I enjoyed the times visiting and talking with her.

  9. Met Jeannie when I was 14 and loved her always. Gosh she was a spit fire an had the most beautiful soul. She always made me feel welcomed an loved. I’m grateful to have been a part of her life’s journey. She will be so missed an forever loved.

  10. I’ve known Aunt Jeannie for most of my life. She would help anyone is could and some she couldn’t. She would watch all of us running around outside the house or climbing the factory wall lol.
    She was the only family that came to the hospital when my oldest son Joshua was born and helped us at home. She was the greatest Aunt anyone could ever ask for or ever have and we are going to miss her so much.
    Im so sorry and angry that we can’t be there for everyone and say goodbye. I’m grateful she isn’t in any pain anymore. Although we couldn’t keep her with us, I’m sure she is watching all of us and breathing easily knowing we all love her and miss her very much!

  11. will be missed such a wonderful friend love you jeannie your friend william hamilton forever friends

  12. My beloved mother-in-law. Boy did we have a hell of a run. I’ve never met a more genuine caring person. It was her biggest blessing and her biggest fault. She loved hard and without expectation. In my opinion, Jeanie was the definition of true love. She was truly one of my best friends. We had many heart to hearts. We had arguments. We had crying sessions. We both understood you can be mad at someone and keep your distance, but at some point you had to get over yourself and apologize and forgive to be happy. She was always soo happy. Nothing mattered more than her grand babies! Nana was Colton’s babysitter for a long time and I treasure the things she taught my son. He loves his nana more than anything and cried soo hard for her. So to Nana, your eye-see-er, nose-smeller, mouth-eater, chin chomper and his parents will “get em get em get em” on the other side! I am thankful to have you as our guardian angel now! We love you soo much and miss you something terrible!

  13. Keeping all the family and friends in our thoughts and prayers. We love all of you and gonna miss her greatly.
