Jeannette Adele Brown, 81, passed away peacefully at Tabitha at Williamsburg Seagren House on April 21, 2020. Loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Jeannette was born April 7, 1939, in Lincoln, Nebraska to John and Olive (Gillespie) Kirby. She loved caring for plants, baking, sewing, cross-stitch, reading, crosswords, antiquing, friends, but most especially, her loving family. She entertained a career as a business manager of several family businesses. She also volunteered for Tabitha Meals on Wheels. But the job she enjoyed most was raising her 5 children and loving her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Everyone who was fortunate enough to encounter Jeannette would tell you she was the kindest soul they had ever met. She had a kind word for everyone and a smile that would light up a room. She was a long-time member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in College View.
