Jeannine was a member of First Baptist Church in Freeburg, IL. A majorette and graduate of East St. Louis High School in 1947, Jeannine met Edward Domescik at First Baptist Church in East St. Louis youth group and married on June 25, 1948. Jeannine was a line cook in District 175, and a receptionist at Rosewood Nursing Home. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. If you knew Jeannine, you knew LOVE. Family and friends were her life. She had an abundance of hugs and kisses for all she spent time with. She instilled moral values in her children, gave unconditional love in her word and deed with her joyful spirit and smiling eyes. She was the biggest fan of all her family’s athletic events, concerts, plays, and awards ceremonies. She was blessed and gifted by God with a beautiful soprano voice and had the opportunity to sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Billy Graham Crusade. Her ultimate fulfillment in life was to uplift and support her family. Even in her last days, her radiant smile and laughter brought joy to all those surrounding her. We will miss our magnet of love that drew us all from far and near.
