Jenette worked as a cook with the Willard City Schools for a short time. She was a member of the New Haven United Methodist Church. Jenette was talented knitting and crocheting and enjoyed spending time in her flower garden. Most of all she cherished time spent with her family.

(Deborah) Laferty, of Akron, and Randolph Scott (Penny) Laferty, of Willard; 12 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and a sister Joyce Howard, of Hebron. Jenette was preceded in death by her loving husband Ottis Laferty, son Gregory Laferty, and 10 siblings.
