After graduating from Dumas High School, she moved to Amarillo, Tx where she met Bill Head. They were married on March 1, 1963 in Hereford, Tx. They moved to Canyon, Tx shortly after marriage and began their family.
While raising three children, she chose to further her education at West Texas State University. She completed a Bachelor of Science in Education with a 4.0 GPA. It was one of her proudest accomplishments. After completing her degree, she accepted a position with the financial aid office at her alma matter. She worked her way up to the position of Associate Director before retiring in 1999.
Jeanette built a home that was open to friends, family, and those in need. She cherished nothing more than sitting around the dining table drinking coffee and visiting with the people she loved. She enjoyed traveling and had the opportunity to visit places such as Hawaii, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Russia. She lived a life full of adventures. She will be missed by her family and many friends.
