On October 15, 1996, Jeananne was united in marriage to Howard Wolfe in Rhinebeck, New York; they later divorced. Jeananne and Howard had owned JB Grocery Store in State Center until it closed. She also had worked with Western Wind acapella to help with fundraising for the group. Jeananne enjoyed all sports but was a very avid fan of football and enjoyed watching the Super Bowl every year. Jeananne also went backpacking across Europe with her mother, Elaine, and have numerous fond memories of that trip together. Jeananne suffered from multiple medical complications but was never one to complain; in fact, she would make light of the situation and would always joke by saying “I am the same age as my mom, and she is in better shape than I am!”
Jeananne is survived by her son, Ulrich, whom was born on the 5th wedding anniversary of her and Howard. She is also survived by her mother, Elaine, siblings: Jeanette (David) Helland of St Louis, Jeanine Worl of Arizona, Jeanelle (Milton) Sidwell of Green Mountain and Jeanice (Jeff) Arment of Marshalltown along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
