Beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend passed away on Wednesday, July 6, 2022 at Bickford Assisted Living, with her family at her side; at the age of 86 years.

Jeanette “Jan” proudly worked at her mother’s restaurant, the Fairview Lunch. She also served at the Saginaw Country Club prior to serving at Grey Iron Foundry until she retired after 25 years of loyal and dedicate service. She was a proud member of the UAW. She enjoyed socializing with the Red Hat’s Society. Jeanette enjoyed reading books, making floral arrangements, attending musicals, Polka dancing, snowmobiling, concerts, going to casinos and traveling, especially out west to Palm Springs. Her family will forever remember Jeanette for her love and care for dogs, “I never met a dog I didn’t like”.
