Jete’ Ann is my first born! She was a happy, independent, and delightful child. As she grew into her teenage years she was optimistic, spunky, and confident. The last three years of high school she attended a private, boarding, Catholic school “Sacret Heart” in Grand Coteau, Louisiana. She attended The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg her freshman and sophomore years where she pledged Chi Omega sorority. She transferred to SMU in Dallas in her junior year where she majored in “boys.”
Jete’ had so many boyfriends it was hard to keep up! One was more handsome and charming than the next. Just as you started to like one she would disappear him and she’s find someone she liked better. Then about two years after college she was working as a medical technician in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and she met her “Prince Charming”, Tommy Crosby. This year they celebrated their 25 wedding anniversary! I think he’s her keeper.
Jete’ married Tommy Crosby on May 7, 1994 in Seaside, Florida. It was such a beautiful and romantic wedding. The celebration lasted for three days. The rehearsal dinner was a seated meal on the beach at sunset with dancing afterwards. The next evening again at sunset the wedding service was in the gazebo on the beach then the reception in a white tent in the village of Seaside followed by dancing until midnight. The celebration ended with a Mother’s day brunch at one of the charming Seaside cottages. We hated to say goodbye to this “Fairy Tale Wedding!”
Jete’ and Tommy never have a dull moment with their three children, Ryan, Katy and Claire! Life is full and exciting and often hectic when these three sibling are home. Jete’ and Tommy have fabulous dinners and parties and one never turns down an invitation to dine with them or attend a party at their home! It is always quite fabulous!
Florida has always been a major attraction for the Crosby’s with the sugar white beaches and turquoise water of the Gulf of Mexico. Jete is a fabulous decorator and has just finished putting her signature on their new beach home in Grayton Beach.
So join Tommy in a birthday toast to Jete’ today, June 18th!
Happy Birthday Jete’! I’m so proud of you and all that you have accomplished!
I love you to the moon and back!
