    Jeanine was a good friend. I have known her and Paul for a good many years. I went with them to their first Nebraska football game. It was a cold day, but we were well prepared and everyone had a good time! 👍 She was a good person! She will be missed! God Bless.

    Very sorry to hear of Jeanie’s passing. She was fun to be around and always made me laugh. I am betting that the majority of Ashland residents knew Jeanie and called her Friend. Best wishes to Paul.
