Jeanine Nicarico was a bright-eyed little girl with an endearing, dimpled smile and a sensitive, caring heart.
She had grown to love school and reading almost as much as horses, puppies, gardening, baking, and make-believe games. Her joy for learning and her excitement about school blossomed only after reaching fourth and fifth grade. Unfortunately, her adventure through life was tragically cut short.
Jeanine was ten years old when, in 1983, she was abducted from her Naperville home and murdered. This loss was felt not only by her family and friends, but also by the Naperville community.
