A native of Chalmette, she loved New Orleans and was involved in many charitable and historic causes. She was active at the Beauregard-Keyes House and Gardens for over 40 years and was a long-time employee of the Times-Picayune, and more recently, worked for the Louisiana Motor Vehicle Commission. She had a huge heart and was completely unselfish with her time and energy, giving to many animal rescue and spay and neuter programs. She loved flowers and gardening, fishing, estate sales, and caring for the neighborhood cats and wildlife. Jeannette’s favorite charity was the Louisiana SPCA.
