Jeanette was born in Lidgerwood, ND, on April 18, 1935, to Stephen and Agnes (Prazek) Blazek.

Jeanette grew up in Lidgerwood, ND, and was baptized at St. John’s Catholic Church. She attended grade school at St. Boniface Catholic School and graduated from Lidgerwood Public High School in 1953. She married Alloy Weinkauf in May of 1954, to this union five children were born. She worked part-time as a waitress at Dick’s Café, which later became Groumbo’s Café. Alloy died in February of 1977. Jeanette then moved to Wahpeton and worked at Pamida. She met her second husband, Harvey, and they were married July 5, 1980, at Mooreton, ND.

She then moved into River Bend Apartments, Pioneer Cottages and most recently, Jeanette was living at Park Garden Memory Unit.

Jeanette was a compassionate, loving person always thinking of others before herself. Her children often commented that they thought she was a living saint on earth.
