Jeanne graduated from Seymour High School. After School, she started a family and they moved to Saipan, Mariana Islands, where she taught for five years. Jeanne moved back to Wisconsin where she courageously raised her three children on her own. Later, Jeanne worked for Wisconsin Public Service for over 25 years.
She was a wonderful mom and treated everyone with love. Jeanne’s family was definitely her pride and joy. Jeanne was grateful to enjoy almost 20 years of retirement.

She was preceded in death by her parents; three siblings, Patricia (Jon) Blochowiak, Leon Smith and Bruce Smith; and a nephew, Jimmy Smith.
