In her early years, she lived at several different army posts and cities where her father was active-duty army and later served as advisor to the National Guard Units. Poplar Bluff was always home base for Jeanne.

On July 3, 1966, she was united in marriage to Gerald E. Garrett, who preceded her in death on June 20, 2000. To this union was born one son, Rev. William (Bill) Garrett of Lebanon. Bill blessed them with a wife, Lisa, and two grandchildren, Robert Myrant Garrett of Lebanon and Faith Garrett of Poplar Bluff.
