Jeanette was a very simple person. She enjoyed walks with friends, and a good book. Later in life, she had fun rooting for her favorite sports team or a quick run to the casino. She loved music. She sang for many weddings, the Bethel Choir, and tried her hand at piano. Her favorite was Frank Sinatra, music of the era.
Jeanette is survived by her sons, Joe Peulen of California, and Will Peulen of North Hudson; and her nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, William; siblings: Mary Jane, Virgil, Virginia, and Les.
