Jeanette is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, Vernon "Bunny" Duncan, whom she married Jan. 27, 1962; two daughters, Vernetta Duncan Cole and her husband Stephen Cole and Angela Duncan Barker and her husband Jody Barker; and two grandchildren, Christian Cole and Molly Barker, all of Mt Sterling.

She worked at Dr. Smith's Family Practice, Morehead Clinic, owned Curtain Call Tanning and Toning, was a Mary Kay Consultant, co-owned Duncan Rentals and worked for the Carter County Board of Education as a bus monitor for special needs children. She had a great love for her family and put their wants above her own.
