Mrs. Jeanette Lorraine Brewer Blackwell transitioned from earthly life to eternal life on Wednesday, September 17, 2008.

Funeral services will be held 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 20, at the United Church of Chapel Hill, 1321 Martin Luther King Blvd., Chapel Hill, NC 27514. Burial will be in Chapel Hill Memorial Cemetery.

On a brisk, fall morning, October 6, 1948, the Brewer family was increased by one. Major and Martha were blessed by God with a baby girl whom they named Jeanette Lorraine. What joy she brought to the family- shared by her older sister, Deadre Delphine, who preceded her in death in 1996.

Her teaching career spanned more than three decades. She taught in the Chaham County Public School System (Bennett Elementary School and Horton Middle School) and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School System (Glenwood Elementary School and McDougle Elementary School). Because of her love for teaching, many of her summers were spent teaching summer school, hoping to better prepare her students for the next school year and grade. She also spent many summer sessions in conferences to better prepare herself, her colleagues and her students for new-era technology operations. She was a long-standing member of the North Carolina Teacher Academy.

Jeanette leaves to fondly remember her, her husband of 33 years, Russell; her sons, Lemont (Siler City, N.C.) and Jonathan (Greensboro, N.C.); her mother, Mrs. Martha Marsh Brewer (Siler City, N.C.); her sister, Paulette Brewer Hadley and her husband, Edward (Pittsboro, N.C.); two nieces, Roberta Paulette Hadley (Durham, N.C.) and Christina Delphine Dorsette (Detroit, Mich.); many other relatives and friends, including her devoted best friend, Mrs. Wanda Cates (Lincolnton, North Carolina) and the entire Cates/Ramseur family and cousin, Philberte Marsh (Siler City, North Carolina).
