American astrologer from an interest that began when she read a book on the subject at age nine. She began her self-study in her youth and it continued through a marriage and family, one son and one daughter. Text books were limited at that time but Jeannette had Llewelyn George as a dinner guest and had Marc Edmund Jones read her chart: he said she could be a professional astrologer but would never make much money from it.

She worked as a hospital administrator, and began lecturing and counseling on the side in approximately 1935, with a particularly fondness for counseling. Her one book was for kids, "Look Up At The Stars," published 1990.

Jeanette founded the Michigan Foundation of Astrology, was a member and speaker for AFA and a founding member of AFAN. A feminist and a humanist, she was known in her day as the Dean of Michigan astrologers. She died on 27 March 1992, age 91, in Lansing, MI.
