With her loving family by her side, Jeannine M. (Hoeing) Stanalonis, 84, passed away Friday, October 5, 2018 at VibraLife Senior Living Community, Mechanicsburg.
Born October 2, 1934 in Toledo, OH, she was the daughter of the late Clemens J. and Dorothy E. (Gootee) Hoeing, was raised in Pittsburgh and graduated from St. Wendelin High School.
She worked as a secretary for West Penn Electric in Pittsburgh and after moving to Palmyra, worked for Forge Street Elementary School.
She was the widow of the late Bernard "Bernie" G. Stanalonis, who passed away in 2004 after 50 years of marriage. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her son-in-law, Robert Kinch.
Jeannine enjoyed cooking and was an excellent calligrapher, even teaching classes in Naples after she and her husband retired there. Her greatest joy, however, came from caring for her beloved family. She was raised in the Catholic Church and attended St. Leo the Great Catholic Church in Bonita Springs, FL.
