Jeannette married the love of her life Charles (Chuck) Pancost in June 1956, at Sacred Heart of Mary. The wedding was one for the books according to guests. This was exactly what Jeannette had dreamed of. They had four children together; three boys and one precious daughter. Jeannette was thrilled to finally have a daughter to share her love of beauty and style with. In 1968, Jeannette finally got her dream home, which was built by her husband. Every summer you could find Jeannette tending to her garden that surrounded her house on Yale Road. They raised all four children in Boulder where Jeannette resided most of her life. Jeannette always and forever considered Boulder home.
Anyone who knew Jeannette knew about her grandchildren. She thought the world of all 10 of her grandchildren. Her house was always open and she welcomed any of them whether they spent hours or days visiting her. In later years, visits from her five great-grandchildren brought her immense joy. She had the privilege of living with two of her grandchildren. This kept her going strong until the end. She was a beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend.
