She attended St. Joseph’s grade school in Pierz and St. Francis High School in Little Falls. On September 5, 1960, Jeanette married Ronald Menden at St. Joseph’s Church in Pierz, and they had two children, Mike and Mary Lou. As a lifelong resident of Pierz, Jeanette lived a full life. Jeanette’s face is well known from working 47 years in the grocery department at Hartmann’s General Store. Residing near many of her relatives gave Jeanette the opportunity to play softball, go to dances, and play cards with many friends and relatives. Once married, Jeanette and Ronnie’s neighbors became close friends who continued to play cards, boast about gardening skills, and have neighborhood cookouts. Jeanette and her family camped with neighbors and friends around the Brainerd area. Any day of the week, Jeanette had home-baked goodies on hand. These cakes, bars, and especially cookies fed her children and their friends as well as nieces, nephews, and anyone who entered her house; they were the welcome sign for anyone who visited. Even when baking was no longer possible, she kept a well-stocked goodies cabinet for any friend or visitor. Personally, Jeanette liked to go out to eat, work on her Word Search books, watch the Twins, and attend Mass when able. Throughout her life, Jeanette cherished time spent with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jeanette is survived by her son, Mike (Sheri) Menden and daughter, Mary Lou (Jim) Miller; four grandchildren, Amanda, Kristi (Matt), Bradley, and Jennifer (Reuben); eleven great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Diane Allord and Darlene Sanoski, and many nieces and nephews. Jeanette was preceded in death by her husband, Ron in 1990; her parents; sisters, Elaine Block, Arlene Flicker, Wilma Kippley, Sr. Sylvia Flicker O.S.B., and infant sister, Patricia; and two infant brothers.
