Jeannette was preceded in death by her husband, Louis Steve in 2007, and by her son-in-law, Bill Scott in July 2013.

In keeping with Jeannette’s wishes, private services will be held at Calvary Cemetery in Ithaca at a later date. The family wishes to express a heartfelt thank you to the staff of the Groton Nursing Facility for their wonderful care. In lieu of flowers, kindly consider a contribution in Jeannette’s memory to the Groton Nursing Facility Activities Fund, 120 Sykes St., Groton, NY 13073.
