Jeanie loved Joplin above all places. She loved giving of her time and talents to others as evidenced by her membership in P.E.O., Travel Club, The Friends of St. Avips, Twin Hills Country Club and the First Presbyterian Church, where she served as both a trustee and as an elder. Most of Jeanie's ("Gamama," as she was affectionately known) life centered on her friends and family. She loved entertaining guests. Her door was always open and a welcoming cup was always ready.
