She married the love of her life, the late Herbert Dana Kidder Sr. on April 14 1962. She was very active in her community wherever she lived. She volunteered at the Bellingham Senior Center in Bellingham, MA. and the food pantry in Mariaville, ME and was always willing to help anyone who needed it. Jeanette was a hard worker and took pride in everything she did and cared more for her family than she did for herself. She was known for being the wacky grandma and always laughing and joking. She was an extremely loving mother to her four children; the late Annette E. Cooper and Larry, Patricia E. Soule and Victor Sr., Herbert D. Kidder Jr., and Kenneth M. Kidder Sr. She was a very special grandmother to Craig P. Domko, and Carla, Victor K. Soule Jr. and Amber, Torey D. Soule and Julie, Eric M. Cooper and Alicia, Shona M. Wright and Joshua, Kayla L. Padgett and Tyrel, Aleesha D. Cooper, Kenneth M. Kidder Jr., Christina Stratton, Desiree F. Leighton, and Emma E. Kidder and great-grandmother to Madisyn, Keslar, Quinn, and Lochlan. Jeanette was also a wonderful sister to Cheryl Peavey and Thomas, Mary Nelson and Gary, Linda DiFiore, Shelia Robak and Joseph, Ted Walker and Claire, Karen Berube and Kenneth, James Prosser, and Kathy Costa and the late Luis, as well as many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her special friend of many years, Dennis Lamotte. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, especially her children and grandchildren.
Friends and family are welcome during visiting hours from 2-4pm on June 9, 2019 at Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home, 215 Main Street, Ellsworth.

I will always remember the times as a kid we would go to see Uncle Dana and Aunt Jeanette in MA or when they would bring the kids to Maine. Lots of laughter, lots of fun and memories. We all grow older and have families and not see was much of each other but the love of cousins, aunts and uncles will always hold such wonderful space in our hearts. I am sure Uncle Dana is thrilled to have Aunt Jeanette with him - heaven just go a little sweeter still!

I want to express my condolences to your family and friends over the loss of your love one. In times like this a comforting word is welcomed. May you receive strength and comfort from the God who promise to “swallow up death forever” and give us a hope of a “resurrection”. - Isaiah 25:8; Acts 24:15.
