  • Notes 

    • [From personal acquaintance with Jeanette].

      Jeanette was born on 4 June, 1920 in Melville, Saskatchewan, Canada. Jeanette's parents moved from Melville to Colton, California when she was very young. Her father got a job on a dairy near Co>
      lton, and the job included living quarters on the dairy. At a very young age (aroud 1 year old, +/- 6 months) she was struck by polio. She spent most of the first 12 years of her life in the Shrine>
      rs Hospital in San Francisco. She has been physically disabled ever since, and is confined to a wheel chair. In spite of her Handicap, Jeanette always seems to have a cheerful, uplifting disposition>
      whenever I see her.
      She lived with her parents until both of them had passed away.
      She learned to drive her own, especially equipped car, and after her mother died of cancer, she was determined to get off welfare, and went to work as a clerk for a Church in the San Bernardino area>
      .
      While she was working at the church a high school class mate, Paul Jillson, looked her up, and they were eventually married on 26 September, 1993.
      In the fall of 2001 Jeanette & Paul were living in Goleta near Santa Barbara, California.
      Jeanette passed away on 12 March, 2010 in a hospice (?) near Goleta.
