If you made a visit to the Cleveland Police Museum between 1997 through 2016, you surely noticed Jeanette Womack Kyle’s winning smile and impeccable Cleveland Police Auxiliary uniform!
After retiring from the City of Cleveland in 1990, Jeanette began her volunteer career in the police auxiliary. Activities included Fraternal Order of Police Associates/Lodge 23, Sixth District Community Relations, and guarding and guiding at the Cleveland Police Museum.
Awards given to Jeanette included the Federation for Community Planning Most Treasured Volunteer, the CPD Citizen Award, the Key to the City of Cleveland, and a Proclamation form the State of Ohio.
CPF Community Outreach Coordinator Bob Guttu reflects, “I got to know Jeannette when I worked in Community Policing and she was a Cleveland Police Auxiliary Officer. She was a hard worker, extremely friendly to everyone she came in contact with, and always brandishing that infectious smile. I am indeed privileged to have known Jeanette…you will be missed by all! RIP, My Friend.”
