My deepest sympathy and continued thoughts to the family. I've known Jeannine for several years. Just out of the blue a couple months ago my cell phone rings while i was visiting my parents in eastern Iowa. I had just arrived at HyVee to get some groceries for them. To my surprise with a big "Hi Phill, its Jeannine Poldberg". I sat in the HyVee parking lot for 15 or 20 minutes talking with her . She had saw my son Nathan in the paper for baseball and just couldn't believe he was a senior already and how her and my wife would be at the Curves workout center while she was pregnant with Nate. " There's no way he's that old yet." We talked and talked and laughed about everything from TJ baseball to family and of course Carter Lake stuff. Her wonderful voice and laugh is and will always be amazing and I'm so glad I took that call. Thank you Janine for that conversation, i will treasure it forever. Rest easy beautiful Lady.

My heartfelt sympathy and prayers to the family, Continue to rely on God during this difficult time and know that he hears our prayers. Isaiah 59:1
I remember Aunt Jeanine having a good sense of humor, very bright, and not afraid to let you know her opinion. I always looked forward to going to Aunt Jeanine’s for Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve. What a fun lovely host she was. May the peace of Jesus be with you Aunt Jeanine.
