During that time she met the love of her life Samuel Hollenhead. They were blessed with a large and loving family. Jeanette and Samuel went on to have three children, Jeffery Allen Hollenhead, Steven Allen Hollenhead, and Scott Glasgow Hollenhead. Jeanette surrendered her life to the Lord April of 1962 and was baptized at the Presbyterian Church in Williston, FL. Jeanette enjoyed traveling, playing board/card games, decorating her snow village at Christmas and spending time with her family. She always either had a camera or video recorder in hand. She loved playing her favorite games Yahtzee, Skip-Bo, Uno and Candyland with her grandchildren. Christmas time at her house was magical with all her snow village. She had tables lined around her house filled with beautiful snow villages. She even hosted field trips from a local school.
