Born in Stamford on December 17, 1926, Jeanne graduated from Stamford High School and the Greenwich School of Nursing. She practiced her vocation at Greenwich Hospital until 1947, the year that she married her high school sweetheart after the war was over. Andy, with Jeanne faithfully by his side, went on to achieve success in both the NFL and his business career.

As a true matriarch, Jeanne focused on her family, never missing a sporting event from NFL Championship Games to PeeWee Hockey (she may hold a world's record for attendance!) or a class activity. She kept a lovely home, which was a sanctuary for her family and to which all were welcome. Jeanne touched countless people through her lifetime and she will be long remembered for her kindness, her good counsel, and her generosity of spirit.

Jeanne's remarkable life will be celebrated during a Mass of Christian Burial on Monday, April 4, 2011 in St. Cecilia's Church, 1186 Newfield Avenue, Stamford, at 11:00 a.m. with Monsignor Peter Dora officiating.
Interment will follow in St. John's Cemetery, Darien.
Friends and Family may gather at the Lacerenza Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 8 Schuyler Avenue, Stamford, on Sunday, April 3, 2011 (TODAY) from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
