At 93, Jeanette Dickson Bouton ended her earthly journey, transitioning into spirit.

Predeceased by her parents Jennie Rowland and D.B. Dickson, brother David Dickson, and daughter Linda Bouton. Survived by daughter Jennie Fouts (Jack) and granddaughter Jennie Lauren Sparks (Jerry).

Jeanette was a lifelong resident of Lakeland, graduated from Lakeland High School, and attended Florida Southern College. She was Miss Lakeland in the 1940’s. In her youth she was a ticket taker at The Polk Theater and retired from Social Security Administration. Jeanette enjoyed helping those throughout her neighborhood in need and was also with the voluntary auxiliary at LRMC as a “Pink Lady”. She was an avid Lake Hollingsworth walker for over 20 years and a multi-gallon blood donor.
