  1. Remembering with respect and adoration working with Jeanette in Judge Rich’s office. Our precious tell it like it is and you never have to wonder what I’m thinking Jeanette. I can’t help but smile when I think of the joyful reunions she has already had. Especially in my mind sweet Beverly Harris greeting her with a big smile and “I knew you’d take your time getting here”. Keeping all of the family in thoughts and prayers for your loss is a great one. Gone but never forgotten ~ Love is Forever. Sharon Schultz

  2. It was an honor to know and work with Jeanette. She always had a smile on her face and loved working for the Gwinnett County Courts. My God bless and comfort the family. Jeanette will be missed ny many.

  3. There has been a big void since Jeanette left her position as bailiff to be able to spend more time with her loving family. We know that there will be a greater void now as she leaves her family to join her eternal family. Mandy and I will be forever greatful for the leadership and friendship shown to us the entire time we knew and worked with both Jeanette and Kathleen. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with your family.

  4. Jeanette was a wonderful lady. I enjoyed the times I got to spend with her, especially our lunches together at the courthouse. She was one of a kind. She will be missed.
