This lovely 5'6" actress was
born on February 4, 1947 in Memphis, Tennessee. Unfortunately, there is almost no information out there about her life, I've found. It probably won't shock you to know she's an expert in nutrition and has done nutritional counseling. She married Jack Lucarelli in 1980, around the same time she got the job playing Janet Fowler on Simon & Simon.
Of all of the articles I've read, she's only mentioned in passing, with no details, which I think is a great injustice to a talented lady.
Speaking of justice, the next thing I could find was 1986. She reappeared as Janet with the Simons in the episode "Lost Lady" and she appeared in the non-Simon-related movie, American Justice,
with JP and Mac. It's been well-documented that
the men were friends, and I think the fact that they included her in the movie and later in the Simons reunion (1995) shows that she was a friend, also. It's just so great to see that among coworkers in the world of 'True Hollywood Stories'.
Since I just don't have much in the way of personal data about Jeannie, I'll go ahead and list her filmography here:
Simon & Simon: In Trouble Again (1995)
American Justice, aka Jackals (1986)
