I could not have asked for a better mother-in-law! I will always be grateful to Jeanette for the kindness she showed me (and my family and all of my friends) throughout the years.

Judy & Russ I can remember a lot of pleasant times with your mom. It is a challenge to find those who carry the candle of Hope and Joy and more so those who do so seemingly without any effort. That's the inspiration your mom leaves me.

I have an admittedly very cursory understanding of Catholicism, so forgive me, but it seems almost as if my grandmother Jeanette's life contained a series of miracles. My chance to really know her depended on her fighting a tumor in her hip for the vast majority of my life. Since I've started cooking for other people, I am mystified by how she was able to scale any meal to accommodate an endless stream of people dropping in to Union street - essentially a continual, smaller-scale version of loaves and fishes. And it was often at family gatherings on Union street where I felt closest to God. My memories of my grandmother are an almost unfair comparison for everyone else in my life. The grandchild/grandparent relationship is often much less complicated - nearly unconditional love, dosed heavily with nostalgia. And that was certainly true for me. Now, with her family spanning generations and spread across the country, there is always some part of Rueben and Jeanette that I can feel present whenever any of us get together. There are so many different personalities and experiences, but threaded through everyone are Grandma's kindness, sense of humor, and love. I know towards the end of her days that Grandma was afraid of what death might bring. I hope that she left without fear, because if there is a heaven, I know she is there now.

My prayers go out to the Schey family. My heart will always be a little emptier now. Jeanette was a wonderful person. She was so much like a mother to me. I only knew her to be smiling and laughing. And she made great pies! I will miss visiting her but know that she is back in the arms of her husband, Reuben and smiling in heaven. I am so fortunate to have been able to know her for so many years. Rest in peace Jeanette.

Great Aunt Jeanette was a beautiful person inside and out. I aspire to be like her: loving, smart, determined, compassionate, funny, best storyteller, kind, positive, strong, and a beacon of beauty. May her spirit live in all that she met. I treasure the time I had with her and hearing about all the family stories, absolutely priceless for her to share them even at 99! God bless her as she is at peace in heaven. What a beautiful soul! xoxo

Cori, Matt, Alex and Hailey have told us so many lovely stories about their beloved grand/great grand mother that we feel like we've known her too though sadly we never met. What a wonderful example of how to truly live one's best Christian life and be a guiding light for family and friends to follow. She lives on in each of your hearts and in the hearts of the many she touched in ways that changed their lives for the better. Our hearts are breaking for you. We hold each of you in our prayers. May God send His angels to bring you His peace and strength. Know that as your loved one sits in glory now with Him in heaven, He is holding all of you in the palm of His hand.
