Read more about the life story of Jeanetta “Sally” and share your memory.
Jeanetta Maria Faith, known affectionately as Jean or Sally, passed away on June 27, 2023, at Metropolis Rehab and Health Care Center, IL. Born on March 21, 1938, in Illinois, she lived a life filled with love, laughter, and an enduring passion for cooking.
Jeanetta was predeceased by her beloved husband, Charles Jr. Faith, who passed away August 13, 2000. She was also predeceased by her mother, Lovina S. Lynch Carnes Skaggs; father, William F. Skaggs; brothers Walter Carnes, Jr., James Earl Carnes, and Clarence N. Carnes; sister Hazel E. "Penny" Skaggs Marx; and brothers John W. Skaggs and Edgar G. Skaggs. She is survived by her sister-in-law Connie Skaggs (MO), nephew Corey J. Skaggs (MO), niece Julie Skaggs Dennhardt (IL), cousins Kim and Randy Ro (KY), and Jo Ann (Robert) McNichols of Metropolis, IL.
Jeanetta also leaves behind an extended family that includes her stepchildren Cathy Buse, David Faith, Daniel Faith, and Larry Faith, her adopted daughter, Rose M. Johnson Dzindolet-Faith; cousins; and several nieces, nephews, and adopted grandchildren.
Jean left school at a young age but found her calling in the culinary world. She was a dedicated and talented chef at an Amish Restaurant in Washington, IN, where she delighted in preparing delicious meals that warmed the heart as much as they satisfied the palate. Jean often reminisced about her time at the restaurant and enjoyed visiting the owners whenever she could. Her hard work and dedication to her craft were sources of great pride for her. Beyond her professional life, Jean had a love for Western TV shows, which she watched with great enthusiasm. She also enjoyed playing games on her phone and was known for her playful sense of humor. She was a jokester, always ready to share a laugh or a smile, giving those around her a sense of joy and warmth. Jeanetta was a woman of many interests, but her greatest passion was spending time with her loved ones and sharing stories of times gone by. Jeanetta was a woman of many admirable traits, but what stood out the most were her friendliness, her love for others, and her fantastic sense of humor. She lit up any room she entered and had a knack for making people feel comfortable and loved. Her infectious laugh will be greatly missed, but her spirit will live on in the hearts of all who knew her.
In remembering Jeanetta Maria Faith, we celebrate a life well-lived, marked by a love for family, a passion for cooking, and a zest for life that brought joy to all who knew her. Her legacy will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of her family and friends. We will remember Jean for her love, her laughter, and the joy she brought into our lives.
