Jeannie's dad was my history teacher at Ridgeview, but I didn't get to know Jeannie until high school. We had a few classes together, but we never really became friends until we worked together in the business office at Queen of the Valley Hospital. She had a great sense of humor and was a lot of fun to be around. I will always have fond memories of Jeannie & laughing in the business office. I'm sure she is missed by so many people. God bless you Jeannie.
