During those years Jeanette worked at the Village Hall as administrative assistant in the Building Department. Jeanette was devoted to Faith and Family. Over the years she was active in American Legion Post 319 which was named for her brother Lt. George Pietrucha. She is survived by her son Richard and his wife Jean along with their daughters Lauren Cutting and Erica Bixel. She was beloved great-Grandmother to Georgia, Madeline, Leo, Amber and David.
