Jeanne Culver Christensen, age 90, of North East and formerly Harborcreek Twp., passed away on Thursday, April 24, 2014. She was born April 13, 1924 in North East, where she attended school and eventually met her husband, Roy Christensen. They were married at the First Presbyterian Church of North East and remained so for over 60 years.
After working as a telephone operator for several years, Jeanne quit working to raise her children. Her world revolved around her four kids, Daryll, Ireta, Heidi and Kip. She managed, as well, to be the accountant/bookkeeper for her husband's business, the former "Chris Signs" for many years. Jeanne was an active member of the South Harborcreek United Methodist Church and always made sure her kids were there each week for Sunday School. Jeanne was a talented pianist and, years ago, accompanied the children's church choir. Her husband was a soloist and was often accompanied by Jeanne on the piano. Besides playing the piano, she was very passionate about reading. She read voraciously and collected many books. She was actively involved in her children's elementary school by serving as an officer of the PTA.
Jeanne is survived by her four children: Daryll of Bradenton, Fla., Ireta (David Zadnik) of Green Bay, Wis., Heidi and Kip, both of Erie; her four grandchildren: Chad and Chase Zadnik, USN Tommy Leslie and Kole Christensen. She is also survived by nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Roy M. Christensen; her brother, Gary; and her mother, Dorothy.
