Jean B. Hennigan Saratoga SpringsOn February 16, 2013, Jean B. Hennigan en- tered the eter- nal kingdom of heaven sur- rounded by her loving family. Born in Throop, PA, on April 28, 1933, Jean was the daughter of Frank and Mary Cuppelli Barone, attended Throop elementary schools, and was a 1950 graduate of Throop High School. During summers and upon graduating high school, Jean worked in the garment industry. Jean married Gerald (Jerry) P. Hennigan in 1953. Jerry's mil- itary career took them to Washington, DC, Alaska, New Jersey, Mississippi and Sarato- ga Springs, where they settled upon Jerry's retirement. When her children were in elementary school, Jean en- tered college. She graduated with honors from both Adiron- dack Community College with an arts degree and SUNY Alba- ny with a bachelor in arts and a master in science degrees while always being there for her children. She was em- ployed by RCG BOCES as a speech and language patholo- gist for 20 years guiding chil- dren in Hoosic Valley, Wy- nantskill and Averill Park school systems. She was also in private practice for two years. Jean was a compassionate volunteer and board member in many organizations includ- ing Catholic Family and Com- munity Services, Franklin Community Center, Hospice, Dorothy Welch Chorus of Me- chanicville, Habitat for Hu- manity, Empire State College Council, SPAC, Home Theater, Saratoga Ladies Golf League, Saratoga Springs Democratic Committee, the Mayor's Senior Citizen Advisory Committee and the Heritage Area Adviso- ry Committee. Jean very much enjoyed be- ing part of her children's and grandchildren's lives and acti- vely followed their academics, school sports and adult ca- reers. Jean was also involved in politics, pursuing her desire to make the world a better place and running for public office in 1991. She was also a long-term member of St. Peter's Church, where she served as a lector and Eucharistic minister. Her parents, five brothers, and a sister predeceased Jean.
