  1. I remember those camping trips well & all the shows we participated in. She was a great person & a wonderful mother & grandmother.

  2. I worked with Jeanette back in the 1970s at Public Health. I was the front desk secretary … so I saw her coming and going from the office on Bunner Street. She was a nice lady, and I was saddened to see her name here. But, she looked to have had a good quality private life as well as public health life, so that was the best revenge, eh? I hope your memories can carry you through this sad time. Hope your wife/mother/etc., rests in peace …not too much ‘organizing’ and partying up in the heavens (!)…

  3. Roy and family, we remember all the camping trips we went on together and all the entertainment Jeanette came up with and all of us participating in. They were wonderful and happy times, we always remember. Jeanette was a wonderful person, she will be missed by many. May she rest in peace.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I remember Jeanette from my parents membership with the NCHA.

  5. Uncle Roy, Lisa, and deepest condolences and sadness in losing Aunt Jan. Although its been many years since I saw her i fondly remember coming to your house to visit when i was a small child and the Loomis family reunions. Hugs from our family to yours.
