As a board member of The Guys and Dolls Senior Club of the Granite Reef Senior Center, and manager of our bingo group, I would like to say how sorry we were to hear about Jeannie. She had many friends there, and we have missed not seeing her the last few years. I have personally known her ever since she came to the senior center. She was always my go to person about bingo rules. So from everyone who knew her from the senior center, we would like to express our deepest condolences.
