Jeannie was a long time resident of Santa Fe, Texas. She was a devoted bingo player and never traveled without a roll of quarters and a deck of cards to rally a poker game. You never saw her without her makeup on, hair curled, and a purse full of gum for the grandkids, and you better not have tracked dirt on her spotless floors!
Jeannie was an amazing daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She had a heart of gold the size of Texas and would not rest until everyone had what they needed.
Honorary Pallbearers are William Locke, Matt Folse, Paul Cantrell, Bobby Watson, Glenn Sumney III, and Jacob Sumney.

God Saw She was getting Tired
God Saw she was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around her and
Whispered “Come with me.”
With teary eyes we watched her fade away,
And though we loved her dearly
We could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands are at rest
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.
