 Jeannine Winters was an extremely active member of RTHS . She, along with her husband, Jack, attended every function. She always brought homemade baked goods that we all looked forward to. 

She was passionate about RTHS and dedicated to helping every event become a success. 

Jeannine was a wonderful example to all of our members, and she was also one of my favorite aunts. She introduced my parents to each other in 1948, and it is entirely her fault that I am here today and part of this  Society.

I miss you Aunt Nene!
