AGE: 95 • Hockessin

October 12, 1920-October 3, 2016

Always sunny and full of life, Jeanne Ryan passed away on October 3, just 9 days shy of her 96th birthday. Her children were with her.

Jeanne was always the optimist, and yet had both feet on the ground when dealing with life's adversities. She possessed an uncanny ability to reduce overwhelming situations into easily managed practical decisions. She had the most common sense of anyone we ever knew.

Jeanne was predeceased by her father and mother, Ed and Doris Newberry, sister, Norma, and a beloved niece, Melissa. Her husband, James P. Ryan, died in 1987.

Jeanne is survived by her son, James P. Ryan, Jr. (Mary Ann), daughter, Christine Ryan (Michael Hudack), twin grandchildren, Michael and Melaina Hudack, sister, Margie Atallian (Jim), and niece, Desiree Harb (Zouhair).

Jeanne loved her family, keeping a good home, her many life-long friends, the color yellow, and lots of sunshine.

Services for Mom were private. She was laid to rest on October 6, a day that was full of sunshine. MealeyFuner (302) 652-5913
