Jeanne C. Van Newenhizen

Jeanne C. Van Newenhizen died March 26, 2019 at her home in Jarvisburg. She was born in Collingswood, NJ October 2, 1929 and graduated from Wilkes University in Pennsylvania. Jeanne was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Francis Claypool of New Jersey and her daughter, Jill Van Newenhizen of Illinois. Jeanne married John Van Newenhizen in December 1949 and enjoyed a life of children, homes, creating art, boats and dogs.

Jeanne lived on the east coast until moving to Deerfield, IL in 1967. She worked as a chemist at various medical companies. Jeanne took a position in research at Whirlpool and shared several patents in washing machine technology. In 1978, Jeanne and John bought a 40-acre farm in Michigan, where they spent over 30 years growing peaches, apples, grapes, pears, plums and other delicious fruits. Jeanne eventually moved to North Carolina to live with her daughter after the passing of John and the sale of the farm.

Jeanne is survived by son John Van Newenhizen (Lois) of Illinois; daughter Joan Pullen and grandsons Adam and Erik Van Newenhizen of North Carolina and Wisconsin.
