When she left the restaurant business, she decided to have fun and, to that end, she joined Indian Creek Golf club, where she spent many hours with her golfing friends. Later, she enjoyed duplicate bridge games with Chuck at the Rocklin Senior Center.
Always a sports fan Jeanne and Chuck were long time season ticket holders for the Raiders. The tailgate parties they had were legendary. She also was an A's fan and enjoyed watching games the entirety of her life.
Jeanne (mom, nanny, gramma) was loved for many things but her warmth and acceptance, as well as, her open heart stand out. One of her favorite sayings was "the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree" and she was and will remain the sheltering tree for all of us.
