Irene Jeanette Mazzie (you probably knew her as Jeanette) passed away on Sunday, August 30, 2020 at the age of 89.
Jeanette was born on May 10, 1931 in Chattanooga, Tennessee to George B. and Ionea P. Holden. She worked for Olan Mills as an airbrush artist for 22 years before she retired. After two marriages, Jeanette was blessed to have four daughters: Patricia, Jacqueline, Sherry and Angela as well as one son, John.
Jeanette's favorite hobbies included painting, going on long drives and eating her favorite food, fried chicken. She always welcomed everyone with an infectious smile, warm hug and quick wit. She celebrated life with optimism, a table full of food and with as many family and friends as she could fit into her house.
Jeanette is preceded in death by her father, George, her mother, Ionea, nine of her siblings, and two of her daughters, Patricia Wofford and Jacqueline Mazzie.
Her spirit and memory are carried on by her three surviving children: Sherry Wilson, Angela Mercer, and John K. Mazzie, her surviving sibling, Anna Stephens, her seven grandchildren, her eleven great grandchildren, her eight great great grandchildren (including two on the way), and an extended family of relatives and friends.
