When Jennette moved to Dayton in the fall of 1968, she went back to school to get her high school diploma, so when two of her kids and five of the granddaughters went to high school the teachers would say I taught your mom and grandmother. They were kind of embarrassed. She then went to cosmetology school and graduated in 1971 and became employed at Eventide nursing home in Sheridan. She really liked working there and loved to hear the old timer’s stories. She was a hard worker all her life. When she remarried and lived in Kaycee, she loved when some of the grand kids would come to stay with her. They would say she had the best dirt for making mud pies. She liked to crochet and square dance when Keith called them. They did this up until their health declined. In her younger years she was involved in 4-H, PTA in Lance creek, taught Sunday school in Lance creek community church and doing things on the ranch.
