Jeanette passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at her foster home near Beresford, SD on May 9, 2019. She was born to Dustin Cedar Face and Lenaire Azure on February 26, 2017.
After being in the hospital for the first eight months of her life, on October 30, 2017, she was able to move to a medical foster home near Beresford, SD. While she had many challenges, she was a sweetheart who lit up the room with her smile and laugh. She loved the numerous therapies she had, because during those times it was all about her, and she loved attention and social interactions! Those who knew her are grateful for those who impacted her life, including her pediatrician, Dr. Matthew Krell, her therapists at Lifescape and the SE Area Coop, all of her doctors at Sanford Children's Specialty Clinics, and her church family at Roseni Lutheran Church. Everyone who met her adored her. She brightened the lives of so many people, and her absence is so painful already. She will be missed more and more as the days go on, but there is comfort knowing that she is in Heaven with Jesus and with all the loved ones who went before her. She will be especially missed by brother Dustin Cedar Face Jr. He never missed an opportunity to crawl over her, and it is so sad knowing how confusing this must be for him.
Jeanette is survived by parents Dustin Cedar Face Sr. and Lenaire Azure; siblings Dusti Rose, Jada, Jade, Savannah, and Isabella Cedar Face, and Mayla Medicine Crow; brothers Ian, Barrett, and Dustin Cedar Face, Jr.; paternal grandparent John and Carmen Cedar Face; maternal grandmother Tamara Azure; aunts Deborah Cedar Face, Sammi Steele, and Terri and LaFae Wind; uncles Patrick and Leonard Azure Jr.; foster parents Woody and Mindy Houser; foster siblings Samantha and Michael Donovan, Alinia, Benjamin, and Taylor Houser, and Matthew Vassar.
Jeanette was preceded in death by maternal grandfather Leonard Azure; paternal uncle Sean Cedar Face; paternal great-grandparents Samuel and Lucille Cedar Face, Carl Bettelyoun, and Julia Richards; and maternal great-grandparents Levi and Ernestine Azure, Lawrence W. Wind Sr., and Caroline Black Tongue-Wind.
Pallbearers will be Dusti Rose Cedar Face and Taylor Houser.
