How to remember Jeanne Winslow? I have never know a kinder, more gentle or more capable woman in my life. Jeanne was always there to help in whatever way was needed. My thoughts go to her family. Losing a mother leaves a hole that never closes. Trust me, however, that as time passes and you need her loving guidance you will find her there by your side reminding you the path to take. We were all blessed to have her in our lives.
Jeanne Eileen Winslow
Jeanne Eileen Winslow, 91, who was born on March 26, 1932 in St. Louis MO passed away on April 11 in Birmingham, Alabama surrounded by her family. There will be a Mass and a celebration of life at 11am May 23 St Michael Catholic Church in Amelia Island, Florida.
She leaves behind her son, Don (Liza) Winslow of Carlsbad, California, and daughter Nancy (Bill) Carroll of Birmingham, Alabama. She has four grandchildren: Tim Winslow, Amanda Winslow, Winn Carroll, and Christa Carroll Kelley (Daniel).
Her parents were Perry Francis George and Jeanne Dorothy Lennon George. Her siblings, Perry, Bill, Paul and Mary Ellen have all preceded her in death.
Jeanne lived in a variety of places while growing up including St. Louis, MO, Elmhurst, IL and Santa Barbara, CA. Jeanne was the first in her family to go to college, graduating from University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in zoology/medical technology. While living in South Pasadena, CA, she met her future husband, Don Winslow, with whom she was married for 61 years.
They initially settled in Whittier, CA, but Don’s job took them to many other locations including Puerto Rico, Connecticut, Georgia, and Tennessee. They chose to retire to Amelia Island, FL. in the early 1990s. After her husband’s death in 2017, Jeanne moved to Birmingham, AL in 2019 to be near family.
Throughout her life, Jeanne worked as a medical technologist and as a real estate agent. She volunteered at Baptist Health in Amelia Island for over twenty years. She and her husband were both active parishioners in St. Michael’s Catholic Church.
Donations in her name can be sent to St Michael Catholic Church at 202 North 4th Street, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034. The family is especially grateful to Affinity Hospice (Birmingham, AL) and Oxley Heard Funeral Directors (Fernandina Beach, FL) for all their support in the last few months.
