Jeanette was an especially devoted and loving mother to her beautiful children, Meagan and Jerad, and took abundant pride and joy in their love of God and life, consideration of others and great work ethic. A devout Christian and stalwart soldier of the Lord’s love and acceptance were exemplified in her glorious love of family, husband and most especially her beautiful children. She carried her family devotion to her teaching and love of her precious students. A soldier for all those challenged by others and one beginning a movement against bullying in the world. A tremendous fighting spirit for those embattled by others; she would stand strong in a battle while carrying her heart on her sleeve where damage was inevitable. She greatly loved her parents, Memaw and Papa, siblings and all those in need. She loved her students and special friends, Andrea Monsivais, Lorena Hernandez, Christie Brown and dear neighbors. Jeanette remained a lover of dogs (any dog), children, music, reading, walking, shopping and travel. She will be missed tremendously here amongst those bound in body but forever present in the lives and hearts of us all. El Paso
