Jeanette was born in Pike County Kentucky, September 26, 1933, to the late Con Joseph and Erie (Salyer) Ross. She married Charles “Jiggs” Skidmore January 17, 1954, and he preceded her in death in 2011. Jeanette was also preceded in death by a son, Randall Joseph Skidmore; 3 sisters: Neva Lee Ross, Emmeleen Ross, and Verna Imogene Ross and a brother, Emery E. Ross.
Jeanette is survived by her children: Beverly (Gary) Young of Zanesfield, Ohio and Chuck (Carol) Skidmore of Rushsylvania; her daughter-in-law, Jackie Skidmore of Bellefontaine, Ohio; four grandchildren: Belinda (Ingo) McLean, Ryan (Jess) Young, Abby (Amanda) Young, and Jessica (James) Schaad; five great-grandchildren: Katie and Kristen McLean, Makayla and Jared Young, and Isaiah Clarke; four sisters: Lillian Houchin of Belle Center, Ohio, Reva Johnson of Hamilton, Ohio, Linda Pifer of Kenton, Ohio and Sandra (Roger) Bullock of Belle Center; a sister-in-law, Gracie Ross of Kenton and several nieces and nephews.
