Jeanne met the second love of her life the late Norman Kay Eaton in Austin, an amazing person and gourmet chef who owned the Polonaise Restaurant. Jeanne and Norman would spend the next 30 years together traveling around the world enjoying the culture and food their travels provided.

Happiness was a choice Jeanne embraced every day.
