Her family knew her as “Jeanne”, she attended Morton Elementary School, Lexington Jr. High and graduated in 1972 from Lexington High School. While growing up on the family farm outside of Lexington, she learned how to work alongside her two brothers, especially during the summer irrigating corn, showing sheep, and she participated in sewing competitions at the local Dawson County 4H shows. She had to learn at a young age to fend for herself being the only female among two brothers and four male cousins. She was also involved in Girl Scouts and actively involved in her church youth group and summer church camps. She was baptized at the Lexington Christian Church at a young age, from that time forward she was a true Christian serving the Lord. She went on and attended Platte Valley Bible College in Scottsbluff, NE and graduated in 1978 with a BS in Christian Education. During the summers during her college years, she was the camp cook at Colorado Christian Service Camp in Fairplay, CO. She continued her education at Ft. Hayes State in Hays, KS and received her master’s degree in elementary education in 1979.
She started her teaching career teaching children at a day care at Gering Christian Church, Gering NE, then moving to Casper WY to Paradise Valley Christian Church and School from 1979 to 2022 when she finally retired. She was very instrumental in starting the Paradise Valley Christian School being the school administrator, teacher, counselor and whatever needed to be done. Her passion was teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to anyone around her. She touched so many lives just like her parents did during there life on earth. The last several years she was really involved in the “TOPS” program in the Casper area where she had many friends.
Jeanne was a fighter, she had been fighting many health issue in her later years, but COVID was the final factor that took her to see the Lord.
