Jeannette Yovan Sullivan

Jeannette Yovan Sullivan was born in Galveston, Texas on December 20, 1946 to Alexander Yovan and Elva “Elvie” Nebout. Jeannette grew up in Galveston County, where she met the love of her life, Emmett Sullivan. The two were later married and had one beautiful daughter, Elvie Ann Sullivan.

Throughout Jeannette’s life, she treasured the little things such as playing cards, rides to the beach, and telling all her funny stories. She loved to laugh and tell any story that would get the room smiling.

Jeannette let her heart lead her life. She loved anyone that she came in contact with, but was also never afraid to speak her truth. More than anything though, Jeannette’s favorite thing to do was drive around Texas, spreading God’s love with her best friend, Emmett.

She will be greatly missed by her granddaughters, Adriauna and Angelica Alaniz, her friends, Pat O’Kelley, Virginia Driver, Brenda Mouton, and Chester Alaniz, niece and nephew-in-love, Connie and Kevin Ervin, and many more friends and family. Not only will she be reunited with her husband and daughter, but she will also be greeted at the Golden Gates by her sister-in-love and lifelong friend, Judy Watts.

A service will be held at 2:00pm Monday, December 12, 2022, at James Crowder Funeral Home, La Marque, with Pastor Thomas Custer Officiating.

  4. Angelica and Anna, My heartfelt sympathy. Your grandma loved you with all her heart and always talked of you when we talked. She check on me almost every week after my mom, Judy Watts, went home to be with Jesus. I will miss that. She had such a passion for Christ and sharing him. I will always cherish our time toghether. It was fun when y’all would come up to our area. Mom and Aunt Jeannette would place cards almost the whole time with your Grandma winning most often. Lol I know your heart is breaking. Please take comfort that she is with your mom, your grandpa and my mom as well as many others who she loved and cherished. I love you both.
