Miss Grosvenor was my 6th grade teacher in 1956-57 in Chardon. She was the best and taught all of the 6th graders how to dance. I will never forget being in the gym with about 150 11-12 year olds doing the box step, the Charleston, square dancing, and even a mild version of the tango. She was the best teacher I ever had.

Teeter was an valued WRHS Gen. Committee member and extraordinary volunteer! I admired her unstoppable dedication, amazing knowledge and genuine passion for local history and genealogy. Her contributions through publications and volunteer work impacted a significant number researchers (including historian Robert Wheeler)….her legacy will live on! I also recall a very fun and lively Sunday afternoon driving through Geauga County with Teeter and her good friend Violet Warren. We drove through southern Geauga County back roads (Middlefield, Auburn, Burton, Claridon etc) as they pointed out areas of interest and described early local history …..including Amish history. A true Geauga County Genealogical Journey! Teeter leaves a wonderful legacy of dedication and work!

Ever the consummate genealogist & family historian, she left her imprint on the hearts of the Shepherd clan. Her example impelled Betsy Shepherd to write the Shepherd family history. Her groundhog birthday forged a wonderful friendship with Paula Shepherd and her unstinting scholarship and publishing allowed her works to be included in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah by Kip Sperry. Please continue your work on the other side of the veil. God be with you 'til we meet again. Much love, Tom & Paula Shepherd family

I have many memories of Jeanette, The first time I met her was at a friend's house. She was fixing the plumbing under the kitchen sink. The next time was at Hamden school as my son's teacher which proves that she could do anything. I really liked her and will have many good memories. She lived a long and productive life.

I am so grateful to have the pleasure of talking with Teeter when she was sexton of Claridon Twp. Cemetery and making sure all veterans of Geauga Co were taken care of when they passed away... she put her heart and soul in her work and did it with perfection for the veterans and anything else she worked with for Geauga Co..
