She married Robert J. Hann on February 8. 1941 in Somonauk. Jeanette kept busy raising seven children and was an active volunteer in her community.
While she was active in many of her children's activities, her volunteer involvement went well beyond her children's involvement. She was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Somonauk where she was active with the Altar and Rosary Society and served as president.
She was active with the Aurora Deanery Council of Catholic Women and DeKalb Deanery Council of Catholic Women and served as president of both. In 1947 she organized and was the first president of the Somonauk Junior Women's Club. She was a Girl Scout volunteer with the Girl Scouts-Sybaquay Council for over 50 years. During that time she volunteered in many capacities including troop leader of Brownie, Junior and Cadette Girl Scout troops and served on various council committees. In 1965 Jeanette received the Girl Scout Thanks Badge, which is the highest award given to adult volunteers.
She volunteered her time with the Somonauk Summer Baseball and Softball teams, organized youth swim lessons, and served on the Somonauk Community Chest for many years, chaired the Somonauk Bicentennial event, and served on the Somonauk Community Improvement Development Committee. She was also active with the DeKalb County Republican Women. After all this she still had time to enjoy sewing and fishing.
