Mrs. Jeanetta always gave her students the best hugs. If you like you were on the verge of tears, all it took to cheer you up was a hug from her. I felt like it was an honor to take care of her. I told her one time that she taught me to read. She said oh that's why you are so smart. and I said yeah you are right. RIP Mrs. Jeanetta. Lori Brandon, your student.

Jeanetta taught my child, Patrick Sullivan, kindergarten. He died the following summer in an accident while visiting his father in Portland, Oregon. I asked Jeanetta to deliver the eulogy at his funeral. She did so, and although I know it was hard for her, did so beautifully. I always remember that. Betsy (Riggins) Taylor
