Jeannine M. Reese was born in Graceville, MN on May 14, 1932 to Edmund (Ole) and Edith Bormes. The family lived in Beardsley later moving to St. Cloud, MN.

Jeanie and Dick moved to Biloxi, MS where Dick was stationed with the US Air Force. While stationed in Biloxi, their first child John, was born.

Following the completion of Dick’s service, the family moved back to Alexandria, MN where their son Tom was born. Dick’s career moved them to Brooklyn Center, MN and their daughter Julie was born. Jeanie spent her days as a homemaker, caring for her family.

The family enjoyed many weekends at their cabin on Lake Ida.

Upon retirement Jeanie and Dick moved back to Alexandria. Sadly Dick passed away in 2005.
