Jeanne is the proud mother of Marcus and Dathan, and has been happily married to Austin for fourteen years. She and Austin both grew up in Litchfield, Illinois, meeting in Jeanne’s sophomore year in high school. She attended Saint Mary of the Woods Catholic College and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resources. Jeanne became engaged to and married Austin while attending classes.
Since graduation, Jeanne has worked in a variety of jobs, including selling auto parts for her brother’s business. She currently babysits for one child, but has previously had up to five kids under her care. Jeanne also loves working with LHA Tax Service during tax season, and has formed strong bonds with many families and individuals through this work.
She has always been involved with the church in one way or another for as long as she can remember. Both her parents were quite involved in church activities, and often gathered with other church families for bible study and fun activities. Since joining St. Stephen’s, Jeanne has been involved in high school education, Ministers of the Table, the Call Committee, and currently works with Worship and Music, sings in the Choir, and works with the Church Council as the Knowing Christ Ministries representative. She is excited about the work St. Stephen’s is doing in partnering with Reconciling Works as an RIC congregation, as well as the Education Revisioning process.
