A memorial celebration for Jeanette Du Bois is scheduled to be held 3:00 P.M. Saturday, December 3, 2016 at Los Vaqueros Mexican Restaurant located at 305 E. Highway 152 in Mustang, Oklahoma.
Jeanette was born October 8th, 1950 in Amarillo, Texas to Ray and Norma Graham of Amarillo, Texas. Jeanette left us on November 21, 2016 after a long battle with illness. She graduated from Palo Duro High School in 1968. She worked for Henley and Johnson CPA’s in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma as Office Manager for over 20 years.
Jeanette was kind hearted and always had a big hug for everyone. She loved her family like no other mother could. She enjoyed camping in Arkansas, and working in her flower and vegetable garden. She loved to cook, collected cook books, and everyone enjoyed her cooking, and homemade salsa.
She married Joe Du Bois on a snowy December 19th, 1992, in an Oklahoma City park at the duck pond.
Jeanette was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Norma Graham as well as her brother Jeff Graham of Amarillo, Texas.
She is survived by her husband, Joe Du Bois of Mustang, Oklahoma, one daughter Jennifer Duck of Bullard, Texas, one son Jeffery Cox and wife Natalie of Ft. Worth, Texas; three brothers Jerry Graham of Amarillo,Texas, Jimmy Graham and wife Linda of Amarillo,Texas, and Jay Graham and wife Mindy of Amarillo,Texas. She also had eight grandchildren; Robbie and Casey Duck of Bullard, Texas, Jerri, Harley, Breanna, and Brady Cox of Ft. Worth, Texas, Brittany and Nicholas Du Bois of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and three great granddaughters, and a great grandson on the way.
She was our world and it will never be the same without her.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to Susan G Komen Cancer Research.

Words can not describe how I feel about Joe and Jeanette. I remember the first company picnic we had at comfort inc. I was a single dad of a 3 year old and a 6 month old and fairly new 23 year old employee of theirs. As I came into the building carrying a car seat and walking the other kid in by the hand Jeanette met me at the door and says give me those babies I’ll take care them go enjoy the picnic with the guys. I can never say thank you enough to Jeanette and Joe for all they have done for me and my kids over the years. If not for them I would not be where I am today. I will always remember Jeanette’s loving spirit and smile.

Cathy Harris says
I knew Jeanette from back in the early 90’s and we were room-mates for a little over a year. I was with Jeanette on a weekend trip to the horse races in OKC when she first met Joe. We shared many good times together and cried on each other’s shoulders a few times. She was a good friend and will be dearly missed. She was always easy to get along with, fun-loving, and had a very caring heart. Her and Joe have been gracious hosts to me and my husband Jack a few times visiting in the OKC area. She will be dearly missed. I am glad I was able to see her Monday, even if she may not have known I was there. My heart and prayers go out to Joe, Jennifer and Jeff; just know that she is no longer in pain and is watching over all of you.
Vicki & Jim Williams says
I remember the first time you brought Jeanette to our house and said this was the woman you were going to marry! Jeanette was so fun and full of life and had the sweetest smile. Her heart has always been as big and sweet as her smile. I am so glad that you both were able to take your trip of a lifetime together, to Italy. My heart breaks for you and your family. She will be truly missed. I’m sending love & prayers daily for all who loved Jeanette.
