Jeannette had a love for music. She played the piano for programs at the school and for services at the First Congregational Church. In 1947 her friend, Frances Brigham, requested that she play the piano at her wedding. Following that, Jeannette played for her own entertainment until she was asked to play for the Traditional Congregational Church where she became a member and continued playing for them for the next 20 years. Jeannette loved the large garden she and her husband planted and weeded together. Together they grew beans, tomatoes, corn, potatoes and other produce and she would always be busy in the fall canning and freezing their harvest.
