  1. Jeanette was a dear and beloved associate and friend of our agency, Daniel and Henry. She gave us her best every day. She truly cared about her coworkers and her clients. Everyone loved her. She was full of energy and enthusiastically approached every day.
    She was beautiful, inside and out. One of a kind. She will be greatly missed.

  2. Jeanette was such a sweet & classy little lady and always looked like a million dollars. It was such a pleasure getting to know her and work with her but mostly becoming a friend. She will truly be missed by all. Prayers for her family and my sincere condolences.

  3. My heart feels empty knowing there will be no more lunches, phone calls or texts (even though they were a challenge for her ) with Jeanette! She is a kind soul who loved to laugh, loved her Cardinals and Blues, the Muny and her friends! Her family was her everything and at Daniel and Henry, we heard all about so many of them. Godspeed Jeanette! I love you and will miss you greatly!

  4. Lovely Lady, Dedicated to her Clients, and always had a happy shiny face for everyone everyday while at Daniel and Henry. I know she will be missed by her family and Friends.

  5. I was fortunate to be able to work with Jeanette for many years at Huntleigh/McGehee Insurance Agency. She made every aspect of my job a pleasure, but I’m not so sure I was able to do the same for her. However, one would never know because she was so kind and considerate. I admired her work ethic and her professionalism. I was not alone in that sentiment. She is someone never to be forgotten.

  6. I love to share the story of how Jeanette and I became friends!

    I met Jeanette on Mother’s Day 2013 at the Denver airport. We had both attended college graduations, and we were waiting at our gate at DIA to board our flight back to St. Louis. We enjoyed talking to each other and then went our separate ways after the flight. Six months later, I ran into Jeanette again. We learned that we were in the same industry and she changed my life, by referring me for my position at Daniel and Henry. Jeanette changed the course of my life and helped me to get my favorite job!

    At work, we would get a kick out of how much care Jeanette took when decorating someone’s work station for their birthday. The decorations were always carefully planned out by Jeanette and she wasn’t going to let us get away with any shortcuts. It didn’t matter how busy she was, she was going to take the appropriate time to make the birthday friend feel special!

    Jeanette was very proud of her kids and grandkids and enjoyed telling us all about them. We all loved to hear her stories and what was going on in her life.

    Jeanette was 82 going on 62! She was independent and spunky. Her Daniel and Henry family loved and respected her. There is so much more that I could say! But, I will close with, Jeanette will be greatly missed by all who knew her!

    I love you, my friend! And as your Christmas cards always said, “Love and friends always”

  7. To the Heuvelman family, I am so sad to hear about my friend, Jeanette. How lucky we were to move in next door all those years ago on Bilron. I just received her yearly Christmas card and she had told me to call her after New Years so we could do lunch. I am so blessed to have known this wonderful lady and to keep in touch all these years. As she always signed her cards, friends forever………..I am in Florida and won’t be able to attend the service, which also makes me sad. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers

    Your gentle laugh and ready smile

  10. It was an honor to know a woman as stellar as my neighbor, Jeanette. Her presence is missed here. I’m glad her children left the kitchen window blinds up a bit, for now.
