Eugenia "Jeanne" Delle Donne

AGE: 68 • Wilmington

Jeanne Delle Donne went to be with her Lord, surrounded by her family on Wednesday, August 3, 2016.

Jeanne, also known as GiGi and Sissy, was a native Delawarean, born in Wilmington to the late Eugene A. and Helen J. (Calvarese) Delle Donne. She graduated from Brandywine HS in 1965 and graduated from Katharine Gibbs College. Jeanne enjoyed dancing with her sister Lynnie and spending time in Atlantic City. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandson, Chase. Her most fulfilling accomplishment was raising her son EJ, which was her number one priority.

She is survived by her son, EJ, his father, Jack Willard; her grandson Chase, brother Ernest F. Delle Donne (Joanie); her brother in law, Tony Barba, her aunt, Rita Delle Donne and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Jeanne is also preceded in death by her sister Lynnie Barba.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her name to 92 Read's Way, Suite 205, New Castle, DE 19720.
