Jeanette graduated St. Rose School and then Aviston High School in 1958. Following high school, she worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Carlyle, IL. Her position involved the creation of Carlyle Lake. She married her husband Ollie in 1961 and lived on the Timmermann dairy farm west of Breese. She was a farm wife and worked for the US Army Corp of Engineers until 1963. After the birth of their second daughter, Jeanette became a full-time farm wife. The family moved to St. Rose in March 1967. In St. Rose they built a house and dairy establishment. The family continued to run the dairy farm until 1988 when they sold their cows. When Jeanette’s youngest daughter entered school, she went back to work as a legal secretary for Bruegge and Becker Attorney at Law. She also worked at Ziegler Coal in Fairview Heights, State Farm Insurance and St. Joseph Hospital Highland.


Jeanette had many past times including playing softball in her younger years. She played in two ladies’ card clubs for over 50 years and a past member of the Clinton County Home Extension, St. Rose Ladies Choir, St. Rose Ladies Sodality, Albers Post 1026 Legion Auxiliary, St Joseph’s Hospital Breese Auxiliary Volunteer, Meals on Wheels Delivery Driver, and Mater Dei’s Mothers and Friends. She was able to juggle these activities and still made time for her family and farm life. She enjoyed life and was always smiling. Jeanette was proud of her large family. Her husband, daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were close to her heart. Jeanette found pleasure in playing bingo and cards and played a tough game of Six Handed Bid Euchre and Seven Up. Her family would like to thank Cedarhurst and Breese Nursing Home for all their care in her time of need. She was incredibly grateful for the time she had with family and friends.
