Jeanette was born on April 5, 1930 in Social Springs, Louisiana to Eugene and Alice Braswell and passed on peacefully to Heaven on Friday, March 25, 2022.
She was raised in a good Christian home and was taught to be honest, kind, and to live by the golden rule. She dearly loved her family, her friends, and her church. She loved reading and studying her Bible and enjoyed cooking great meals, working crossword puzzles, talking on the phone and keeping abreast of current events and the political climate of the day. She dressed sharp and always had her lipstick on!
She was preceded in death by her parents; husbands, Bill Cole and Ralph Laenger; sister, Shirley Braswell Walker; brother-in-law, Bill Walker and grandson, Jason Crawford. Left to cherish her memory are her son, Gary Crawford and wife, Becky; daughter, Roxanne Crawford Hayes; special friend, Breck Bickham; brother, Shelby Braswell and wife, Lois; former husband and father of her children, Leon Crawford; step-children, Al Laenger and wife, Mary, Matt Laenger and wife, Denise, Pam Laenger, and Debbie Hudson; 11 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; nephew, Ron Braswell and wife, Kelly; niece, Brenda Cavner and husband, Johnny and numerous great-nephews and great-nieces.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials may be made to Woodridge Baptist Church, 850 E. Bert Kouns Industrial Loop, Shreveport, Louisiana 71106 or to the charity of the donor's choice.
Jeanette leaves a legacy of love, compassion and selflessness always putting the needs of others before her own.
