Jeanne and her husband founded Sommerville Sign/Sommerville Flags in 1948 and continued to run the business together for 70 years.  She will be missed for her lifetime of being a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother.  She had a contagious zest for life and loved every minute she spent with her family.  She loved to cook, entertain, and keep a house a home for everyone to enjoy.   She loved the Lord and daily reaffirmed her faith by reading God’s word and communicating it through her life.  She will be greatly missed!!

A private family service will be held.

A special thank you to Heather and the staff at St Elizabeth Hospital for the exceptional care that they have provided to our family over the past few months.
