"Nene" was known for her love of horses and going on trail rides and all of the activities that go along with them. She was renowned for her chicken fried steaks and gravy that she cooked up for all who participated in these trail rides.  Being a true country girl at heart, she also loved baling hay. She will be remembered as being a good friend that enjoyed pulling  practical jokes on her friends, and her notorious "evil eye" that you would be sure to avoid if at all possible. Jeanene was also an amazing seamstress that made clothes for her kids and dresses for her sisters as well. Her friends described her a being a "spitfire" with a stubborn streak.

Huffman and wife Lisa; niece, Monica Benson and husband Brian, granddaughters Ciji McElyea and husband Brian, Callie Himlin and husband Will, great grandchildren Briley and Bentley McElyea and Zach and Lily Himlin.  She also is survived by many nieces and nephews and special longtime friends Les and Raelynn Arquette.
