    I worked with Jeanne for years until she retired at Minnesota Correctional Facility- Stillwater. She was a very nice lady and excellent Sergeant at work. She was one of the first women to work the cell blocks. Most of my Memories were her working in B-East in charge of 250 men with 2-3 additional staff. She always made the new staff comfortable and was willing to show the ropes to the staff who worked in her charge. May God Bless You Jeanne.

    Your mom lived a hell of a life! I’m so glad I had her as my friend for so many years! I just love her like a second mom. I’m so sorry for your loss. When you feel sad just remember her laugh.
