Warren (Walker), Jeanette

Jeanette Warren (Walker)

Plainwell - Born in 1926 in southern Illinois, Irene Jeanette Walker (yes-first name Irene, a name of which she was not fond) was destined to cross paths in fifth grade with a dashing fellow classmate named Zach Warren – who became the love of her life. Marriage plans, interrupted by WWII, took place in 1946 upon Zach’s return to civilian life. They eventually settled in Otsego, where together their lives were filled with a growing family, busy careers and many good friends. Following Zach’s death in 2009, their inseparable bond remained, and he was there to welcome her to Heaven on November 2, 2021. She was greeted by sister Sandy, brother Jack, son Roger, “Momo and PapaDoc” (otherwise known as Cecil and Clara Walker, mom and dad), and her beloved Scamper. Jeanette was blessed to have the loving and exceedingly caring staff at Stanford Lodge, the amazing staff of Centrica Care Navigators (formerly known as Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan), and of course Pastor Joe, to guide her peacefully and comfortably through this journey. She has left Craig and Leslie to continue the Go Blue! spirit, and to thank everyone for their friendship, support, and caring ways. A private family service has taken place. If you wish, memorial donations may be made to Christian Neighbors, Centrica Care Navigators (Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan) or any animal rescue organization. Be joyful knowing somewhere in Heaven there is a very fine, silver-haired trumpet player again performing a mesmerizing rendition of “Stardust” to his beloved “Jeannie”, and all is well.
