Bay City, Michigan

 If you had the privilege of knowing Jeannie, then you also know that the sweetest person in the whole wide world passed away Friday, September 17, 2010 at age 68 after a valiant fight with cancer.  She was born on May 12, 1942 in Petosky, Michigan to the late Gould and Naomi (Isaman) Pinney.  Jeannie married Calvin F. Horner on September 16, 1961, and just celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary.

 Her greatest joy in her life were spending as much time as she possibly could with her children and grandchildren, who she quietly instilled the love and respect of animals and nature.  We all loved and looked forward to her Christmas cookie bakes, Halloween pumpkin carving events, horse back riding, or just spending the afternoon playing games or putting puzzles together.  She also loved spending time with horses as they brought her much joy from watching them arrive in this world to just cleaning the barn.  She was always at peace when she could spend the afternoon with horses.

 Surviving besides her husband Calvin, she leaves three children; Laura (Peter) Vasylak, Floyd (Michelle) Horner, Robert Horner, five amazing grandchildren; Joshua, Danielle, Mitchell and Trinette Horner, Lena Vasylak, along with three step-grandchildren; Danielle, Kristina and Nicholas Vasylak, her sister; Gwendolyn Norton and brother; Bruce Pinney.

 She was taken from us far too soon and her passing will forever change the way we view the world in which we live.  Our hearts are broken.  We love you to the moon and back…
