Jeanette Grada SCHOLTEN was born on 12 Jan 1921 to Jan and Ella Scholten. She went to Hull Christian School and later went to Western Christian High. As a young teenager, Jeanette enjoyed target practice, and shooting tin cans off the top of fence posts. Her favorite season was Spring, and she could name every flower and tree on their property. She spent a lot of time outdoors, hanging up clothes to dry, gardening, and washing her windows, (usually with a child underfoot). She loved having family over on Sunday, and would always have a variety of quick breads and cookies for them to enjoy. Jeanette, a homemaker, loved her family. When a child had an ear infection, she would spend the night sitting with him in a chair. She loved babies, and would drop everything she was doing to care for her grandchildren. Once she had cut up watermelon in a 9x13 pan setting on the ground outside for family to enjoy. Everyone ate out of that pan all night, and when the pan was brought inside they noticed bike tire tracks through it. (They think it was grandson Travis or Chad or Shane). With eight children, Jeanette didn't have a lot of time for herself, but when she did have time, she would read a book, quilt, or bake. She had a wonderful attitude about mending for her large family. Although there was always a huge pile of clothing that needed mending, she would say, "If you wait long enough, they will outgrow it." She also enjoyed making pictures from stitchery. She never had enough storage, as she loved to save things. Church life was very important to her. She died on 2 Nov 1988.
