I have such clear and warm memories of Jeanie here, especially at St. Thomas. We had heard of her death last Saturday, and I announced it at the end of our church service. So many reacted with memories and love. She was one of the most faithful and active members of our little log church. I still think of her (and her dog!) when I often drive by her, and her mother's homes on 1st Street - so she has continued to "live here" in our hearts. One of my favorite historical pictures in Dubois is she and Claude on the back of his pet steer! Love and God's comfort to all her family.
