Last updated 4/26/2022 at Noon

Jeannette Jentzsch Harding, loving mother and grandmother, amazing sister and good friend, passed away on February 9, 2022, at the age of 79. She was born April 22, 1942 in Farmington, Utah, to a large family. She described herself as being No. 6 of her mother’s 13 children and No. 18 of her dad’s 42 children. Although Jeannette very much enjoyed her many siblings, who were both playmates and best friends to her, she sometimes felt a little lost and lonely.

Jeannette loved her family and especially loved being with her grandchildren, teaching them her many talents and hobbies. Everything from gardening, to canning, to chocolate making, to quilting; she wanted to pass on the things she had learned to future generations. She was a very caring and generous person who loved Jesus. She didn’t just talk about Jesus and her faith, but she lived it. She reached out to others and was sensitive to their needs, blessing them with whatever she had. She wanted to always share Jesus with others, or life was not worth living for her. Her prayer was that through her life others would come to know him as well.

Jeannette loved the town of Sisters and could be seen out walking around town, shopping in the local stores, and eating with friends. Her soft voice, gentle mannerisms, and warm hugs attracted people to reach out and get to know her. Jeannette quietly went to sleep in her home reading her well-loved Bible, resting in her favorite chair.

Jeannette was preceded in death by her parents, Garda and Carl Jentzsch, her brothers, Gerald Jentzsch and Eugene Jentzsch, and her sister, Ramona Kester.

She leaves behind her son, Lyle Cottrell, and his wife, Connie, as well as her granddaughters, Cayla and Cearra, and great-grandson, Jaxon.

She leaves behind her stepchildren, Yvonne (Kent) Cheek, Lloyd (Nancy) Cottrell, Lucinda (Joe) Mills, Holliann Cottrell, and Ceresse (Lane) Harris; and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is also survived by her brothers Richard (Gail) Jentzsch, James (Ann) Jentzsch, Boyd (Laura) Jentzsch, Leland Jentzsch, Larry (Roxanne) Jentzsch, Joseph (Amy) Jentzsch, and Ronald (Connie) Jentzsch, and sisters Nadine Cottrell and Marilynn Tobiasson, and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held for Jeannette on Sunday, May 15, at 1:30 p.m., at Sisters Community Church, 1300 W. McKenzie Hwy. in Sisters.
