Being a grandma to her only grandson Patrick and later his family, was her greatest passion
Jeanette will be deeply missed by her daughter Jennifer Egan, Wilton, ND; grandson Patrick and his wife Sandra and their children, Ozzie and Sith; her sisters: Eleanore (Kermit) Vigen and Merle (Raymo) Mehus and her beloved nieces, nephews, and their families.
