She was united in marriage to John Vogt in Spencer, Iowa on September 14, 1940. The couple made their first homes in Little Rock and Rock Rapids, Iowa and later Adrian, Minnesota. In 1948, they moved to Holland, Minnesota. During WWII, Jeanette began her working career by helping families in need. She left the workforce to raise her family, but returned after they began high school serving as a waitress and cook for Ann’s Cafe in Holland, Minnesota. In 1975, the family relocated to Ruthton, Minnesota and Jeanette joined the staff at the Good Samaritan Communities of Pipestone, Minnesota where she would continue to work until her retirement in 1997.
