  1. Jeannette was my mother’s neighbor in Chadron on Maple Street. She and Ron were neighbors in the truest sense of the word and provided much support and assistance to my mom, especially when my Dad passed away.
    When I visited my folks, Jeannette always invited my kids to use her swing set and other toys. My kids thought she had the best toys.
