Jeanette Hardin graduated from East Texas State University with a dual degree in French and English. She furthered her French education at the University of Dijon in Dijon, France.
Jeanette worked in the public schools in Texas for thirty years where she primarily taught French and English. She and Wylie also chaperoned groups of students on numerous summer European tours. After retiring they moved to Arkansas in 1994.
In addition to being an avid traveler, Jeanette was an incredibly talented seamstress and she particularly loved quilting. Her fabric stash was legendary! She loved to collect vintage Pyrex and nutcrackers of every shape and size. Every day in her house was like Christmas. She will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure to know and love her.
