Jeanette was born on August 21, 1927 in Lake Henry, Minnesota to Michael and Elizabeth “Lily” (Lieser) Waldorf.  She graduated from eighth grade at Lake Henry School.  Her family moved to Paynesville in 1941 and Jeanette graduated from the Paynesville High School in 1945.  They lived on Lake Street until moving to Minnesota Street in 1964.  Jeanette never married and was caretaker of her mother.  She also worked at the Ben Franklin Store and then became bookkeeper for Paynesville School for 27 years. Jeanette was an active member of St. Louis Parish and Christian Women. She served as the church organist for 50 years. She also was a member of the Paynesville American Legion Auxiliary and volunteered at the Koronis Manor and the Good Samaritan Care Center.
Jeanette enjoyed traveling with her sisters and spending time at the lake.  Whenever the sisters got together, they enjoyed lots of music, singing, laughter and maybe a beer or two!
She is survived by her sister, Joanna Pendergast; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Lucille (Norbert) DeMorrett, Irene (Jerome) Mady, Bernadette (Bernard) Steidl and Margaret (Donald) Wendlandt; brother-in-law, Donald Pendergast; niece, Christine Steidl; and nephew, Robert Wendlandt.
A special thank you to the staff of Koronis Place for their exceptional care.
Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers.

I was so sorry to hear about Jeanette. She lived close to my parents Marylou and Marcellus Garding for years. I remember her as just a beautiful person inside and out. When ever she saw you she would give you the biggest smile and a very warm greeting. Marylou (m mom) and I (Linda) want to say our deepest sympathy to her family and friends. God Bless!

We knew Jeanette and in later years enjoyed bring Communion to her. We had many wonderful visits and will ALWAYS remember her! God bless her memory!
