Loved Her Family -

Jeanne S.

Jeanne graduated from Polk Township Consolidated School in Kresgeville as part of the class of 1947 and from State Teachers College in Kutztown in 1951 with a bachelor’s of science degree.  She retired from East Pennsboro School District, after 30 years of service working as a 2nd grade teacher.  Jeanne also taught in Raritan Township, NJ, Lehighton, and Littlestown.  She was a longtime member of Market Square Presbyterian Church in Harrisburg, where she sang in the choir, served as a deacon, and volunteered in the nursery.  Jeanne was a member of the Public School Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) and the National Education Association (NEA).  She was also a member of the Marysville Lioness Club, the Red Hat Society, and Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS, Inc.).  Jeanne helped out as a volunteer at the Marysville-Rye Public Library.  She loved to read and it did not matter what type, she read all different kinds of books.  Jeanne enjoyed music and could play both the piano and trumpet.  She liked to bake and was famous for her chocolate cake that she had to make for every family function.  Most of all, she cherished the time she spent with her family.
