Jeannie was a proud graduate of North High School, class of '68.

She was a hard worker in life. She had worked at several things, from working at Parr manufacturer, to being in the daycare profession both in-home and at daycare centers.

However, she loved her very first job at the Iowa Jewish Senior Life Center where she had worked for several years until she got married and started her own family with John "Larry" Snider on Sept. 20th, 1975. Where they started to grow their family of two girls, Angela (Shad) Kirton, of Grimes, and Sheila Snider, of Granger, along with becoming a stepmother of four children, John "Clint" Snider, Christian "Chris" Snider, Tonya Snider, and Traci (Charles) Schreckenbach all of Des Moines.

Jeannie had a big heart; she loved cooking, fishing, camping, and loved to travel. However, Holidays and Grandkids seemed to be her big joy and passion in life. She loved to dress-up and decorate for Halloween and could never get enough candy with the grandkids when taking them Trick or Treating and when it came to Christmas though the real kid came out in her. She decorated so much you would of thought she was hosting Santa himself.
