On October 12, 1933, Jeaney was born to John and Jewell Anderson in Stonewall County, TX, at the foot of the Double Mountains. She married Roy Edwards on August 18, 1962, in Plains, TX. They welcomed their first daughter, Latrica, in September of 1963, their second daughter, Randa, in April of 1967, and their third daughter, Holly, in December of 1968. They moved to Brownfield in 1970, and there they raised their three girls in the First Christian Church of Brownfield.  Jeaney was a homemaker until her youngest daughter was in high school. Then she worked at Hester Implement as a bookkeeper and payroll clerk.  Jeaney was active along with her husband in the Brownfield Evening Lions Club. Still, her children kept her busy with Volleyball, Basketball, Band, and Choir concerts and many other activities along the way. Jeaney was also a member of the Pink Ladies Auxiliary and loved serving others. Every Wednesday afternoon, she took her three daughters to the Nursing Home to visit all the people there. They made the rounds passing out gifts and hugs down each hallway. She also took her girls to help pack and deliver meals on wheels once a week. There were many touched by her ministry and love throughout her lifetime. She did not pass someone walking in Brownfield that she did not stop and offer them a ride. Jeaney was active in the Choir of First Christian Church and various other ministries. She never met a stranger, and if you knew her, you loved her, and she loved you. Jeaney’s house was the hangout spot for all of her girl’s friends, including those from Church. There were not many Sundays that she did not have guests around her table after church. Many of her girl’s boyfriends continued to hang around the house long after breaking up because they had become part of the family. Jeaney considered all the girl’s friends her kids. She loved each one of them as if they were her own. Jeaney had a special place in her heart for the widowed and single women who lived in Brownfield. There were at least five that her girls remember fondly. Jeaney loved playing games with her family. There were many times that games became tournaments and required a sugar game, especially Joker. She loved playing Phase Ten with Roy because it was one game that Roy could not beat her in, much to her delight. There was a game night at least once a week, and on Friday nights, Jeaney and Roy would play Canasta with a group of sweet friends. Jeaney had a zest for life that was as strong as her faith. Jeaney left a legacy of love for her family, one that will be carried down through the generations. Family was the most important thing next to God and her faith. Though she will be dearly missed by so many, her family knows she is in the arms of Jesus.

Survivors include her daughters, Latrica (Jasper) Jowers, Holly (Rick) Betenbough, and Randa (Kevin) Reeves; grandchildren, Joshua (Amber) Jowers, Johnathon Blythe) Jowers, Jarisa (Jon) Larson, Kenny Neal, Natalie (Neil) Green, James (Tiffany) Betenbough, Shannon (Michael) Hughes, Audrey (Dustin) Swafford, Devin Reeves, and fiancée Kyle Stevens, Jared Reeves; twenty-two great-grandchildren; and sisters, Marie (Tom) Bowers, and Wanda (Hollis) Wolfenbarger.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Edwards; parents; a sister, Lou Alice Neal; and a brother, James Anderson.
