  4. Trish and Family, I did not realize your mother and my mother shared the same birthday. Your mother was a “Firecracker ” also! God needed another Firecracker so she was called upon to help God. I am so sorry for your loss of such a special person!!!!

  5. My name is Ray McInnis and I was the PSI manufactures representative in New England for 20 years.

    Jeannie was my inside sales person for many of those years. She was such a professional and someone that I always enjoyed speaking with about work and whatever else popped up! I had so much respect for her that, like many others in the PSI family, I made the trip to Houston for her retirement dinner.

    May she Rest In Peace. My condolences to you all.

    • Hi Ray! I’m Tammy Jeannie’s daughter I use to go to PSI with my mom growing up because I could never leave her side. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to post these kind words about my mom. I always remember watching her work and talk on the phone to all the customers and so many of them only wanted to talk to momma, I was always impressed by her! Thanks again!

  12. Sweet Jeannie will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have met her. She was truly a good person who loved the Lord and you would know that by watching her live her life. Full of fun she was and so easy to fall under her spell as she drew you into her family of friends. Wonderful friend who now is with her Savior.

  14. Jeannie was like a second mother to me. She and Floyd always treated me like I was one of their own and I will never forget that….I love them and their family very much and it is devastating to hear of Jeannie’s passing…..I praise God that I had the honor and privilege to be apart of NOLA JEAN’S life. May the Lord Jesus Christ grant her peace and ever lasting life in the Kingdom of the Lord.
