She is greeted in Heaven by husband Jody, her maternal and paternal grandparents, father Edward, brother Joshua and numerous family members and friends. Jeanette was raised in Ivanhoe, California and graduated from Golden West High School. After spending time in Southern California, she returned to the north and married Jody Wayne Burks of Ivanhoe. The two built a home where they would raise their two beautiful children together in Lindsay. Jeanette is survived by her son and daughter, Joshua W. Burks and Julia M. Burks both of Lindsay, mother Bonnie Cook, sister April Stowell (Darin), nieces and nephew Brandy Oliveira (Mitchell, Cooper) & Holly and Wyatt DeCraemer, and an immense number of family and friends whom she loved greatly. Jeanette was employed by Tulare County for several years as a Retirement Specialist, where she will be sorely missed by her work family. In her spare-time she enjoyed going to concerts and sharing laughs and making memories with family and friends, but especially found pleasure hiking with her Summit Sisters. Jeanette made an effort to run in as many marathons as she could, and even completed 5 marathons in her 50th year with 1 immediately following her second chemo treatment. Jeanette was a tender loving soul with a zest for life and will be infinitely missed by all who loved her.
