She married Jose D. Martinez of Twin Falls, January 3, 1972. Their marriage blissfully endured for 38 years until Jose’s death on April 20, 2010.

She was a gifted and award-winning artist, a novelist, loved music, loved playing piano, dancing, singing, fishing, camping, cross-county skiing, traveling and especially laughing. Jeanette was active in her community as a neighborhood watch leader, assistant Den Mother in Cub Scouts, and initiating the Smokey Bear Club, one of three established organizations in the United States.

My name is Kevin Williamson. I grew up with Preston and Vincent. Jeanette was my second Mom. I will always have the memories of her hollarin at as to be quiet while playing pool because she was trying to write a book or teaching me how to make taffy in the dishwasher and when she would load us all in the back of the truck every weekend to go to the drive in movies. I haven't seen much of the family because we have all grown up and moved on, but Jeanette will always be in my heart. Rest in Bliss in Heaven! I will miss you greatly..but my memories of you will live in my heart forever.
