Jeanne Eleanor Gibson Glenfield
Birth: Jan. 8, 1939
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 22, 2007
Hillsborough County
New Hampshire, USA

Jeanne E. Glenfield, 68, of Bedford, NH passed away July 22nd after 14 months spent traveling and enjoying her family and friends while bravely battling cancer. She was born January 8th, 1939 in Lancaster, PA, the daughter of the late Mercer E. and Anna (Nancy) P. Gibson.

A draftswoman at the Itek Corporation in the early 1960's, Jeanne took great pleasure in her various artistic endeavors. Although an early officer of the Chelmsford Art Society, it was her participation in the Chelmsford Garrison House that led her to a lifelong interest in quilting. She was an active member of several quilt guilds and associations. Her proudest achievement, besides her children and grandchildren, was being co-founder of A Quilters' Gathering, an event held every November since 1989 that draws quilters from all over the country as well as the globe.

She is survived by her husband John; one son Stephen and daughter-in-law Kelly; three daughters, Amy and son-in-law Joe, Sarah, Kate and son-in-law Scott. She was blessed with five grandchildren; Jacqueline, Joseph, Philip, Sam and Noah. She is also survived by her sister Nancy Lowe, brother-in-law Dennis Lowe, and niece Carolyn Shifflett and family.

A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Saturday July 28, 2007 in St. Elizabeth Seton Church, Meetinghouse Rd., Bedford, NH. Burial was in St. Mary Cemetery, Beverly, MA.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Saints Memorial Cancer Center, 1 Hospital Drive, Lowell, MA, 01852-1311.

Guess what? I am finally coming up for a visit! It's only been 34 years!! How I should've tried harder to come up while you were alive. Wish that I could see you now.

I wish I could give you these roses in person. I can't believe it's been over 4 years since you left us. Do you know that Jacquie's married now with your first great-grandchild due in February?
