AGE: 89 • Newark

Jeane Carolyn Garner passed away peacefully on Friday, November 6, 2015 at Christiana Care.

Born April 8, 1926, to Mahlon and Helen Hull in Elkhart, Indiana, Jeane was a 1944 graduate of Elkhart High School. In 1946, she met and married Hal Garner. Hal soon accepted a position with Dupont which took them to Wilmington, DE, Newark, NJ, Aiken, SC, and Park Forrest, IL before settling in Newark, DE in 1959. She retired from the University of Delaware after 25 years of dedicated service to the History and Geology Departments.

After watching Jim Bunning pitch his perfect game on Father's Day 1964, Jeane became a dedicated Phillies fan. Over the next 30 years she spent two weeks every March in Clearwater, FL attending Phillies spring training games. Upon retirement Jeane remained active by volunteering and traveling with friends. An avid cat lover, she will be missed by her current companion, Pretty Girl.

Jeane is survived by three sons, Richard (Marie) of Kirkwood, MO, Neil of Las Vegas, NV, Dennis (Cecilia) of Hockessin, DE, grandchildren Richie (Wendy), Amanda (Mathieu), Stefanie and Daniel, great-grandchildren Grady, Layna and Brody.

Services and burial will be private.
