Jeanne Marie Kerwin Obituary
June 18, 1960 - February 11, 2016 Jeanne Kerwin (nee Troy) passed away peacefully in her sleep February 11th with her husband and children at her side. She had struggled valiantly with a brain tumor for over three years. She died in her new home in Venice CA where she and her family had recently relocated after living 22 years in New York City. Jeanne was born in Los Angeles and raised in Canoga Park, went to Chaminade Preparatory High School, and attended both UCLA and Loyola Marymount. After college she became active in the LA theatre community producing plays for Catalina Productions. She then worked for years as a casting director at The Disney Channel. After moving to New York, she became active in, and was later employed by, the NYC Dept of Education. Just prior to her cancer diagnosis, she had re-entered the entertainment industry in TV development. More than anything, Jeanne enjoyed entertaining friends at her home. She also loved traveling -- but always with friends. Her family and friends were her life. Jeanne is survived by her husband, Brian, and their three children, Finn, Matilda, and Brennan. She is also survived by her mother, brother, and three sisters. A memorial will be held on March 5th at 1 o'clock at Big Door, 114 Sheldon St., in El Segundo. A separate memorial in NYC is pending.
