Jeanne Lavonne Feaster

April 12, 1931 — July 1, 2024


Jeanne Lavonne Reniff Feaster was born on April 12, 1931 in Brady Lake, Ohio to Victor Reniff and Mildered Reniff Anderson. Jeanne loved skating at Brady Lake Park and continued skating into her 80s. She passed peacefully in her sleep at the age of 93 with her family by her side on Monday, July 1st.

Jeanne leaves behind her children Jennice (Larry) Farkas of Plover, Wisconsin, Jeff Feaster of Austintown, Jackie (Chuck) Jacobs of Salem with whom she made her home, Jennifer (Chuck) Johnson of Salem, and Joel (Theresa) of North Jackson. Nine grandchildren: Michael Farkas of Amherst, Wisconsin, Brain (Tammy) Farkas of Plover Wisconsin, Heather (William) McCabe of Dublin, Ohio, Marcus (Christine Sakalosh) Feaster of Poland, James (Megan) Feaster of Sagamore Hills, Ohio, Matthew (Sarah) Feaster of Cornelius, North Carolina, Seth (Hillary) Feaster of Salem, Hope (Zach) Amatore of Cleveland, Lexi Johnson of Cleveland. Seven great grandchildren: Dalton Farkas, Katelyn Farkas, Cora McCabe, Jack McCabe, Quinn Feaster, Gabrielle Feaster, and Mason Feaster. Three bonus grandchildren Philip Jacobs, Katelynn Yochum, and Olivia Callihan, and two bonus great grandsons Owen and Noah. Sister-in-law Margie Reniff, nieces Susan Reniff and Becky Rundell, and nephew Kevin Whistler.

Jeanne was preceded in death by her parents, brother Paul Reniff, infant sister Betty, beloved son James Feaster, and great granddaughter Emma Feaster.

“Nanny” was a compassionate caring woman, who catered to all who came. A vibrant woman who would not want her passing to be mourned, but rather, a celebration of the long life she lived with her loved ones. She leaves behind the message to all, “Family is the most important thing you can have in your life, keep them close.” In small moments of celebration, she would be known to shout out a “Whoopee-Ding!” She welcomed all newcomers to the family with a warm ‘Nanny’ embrace and a question, ‘Are you hungry? Did you eat? Let me make something for you.’ She will be missed by all of those who had the pleasure of meeting her. She was a member of Reading Church of Brethren in Homesworth, Ohio.

The family would like to offer a special thanks to Vasiliki Vamvakis MD, Mariah Pogue PA-C, and all of the staff at Canfield Primary Care for their skilled, loving, and compassionate care. Additionally, a heartfelt thanks to granddaughters Hope, Lexi, Hillary, and bonus granddaughter Rebekah DeBolt for their exceptional loving compassionate care.

 The Celebration of Jeanne’s life will take place at Reading Church of the Brethren in Homestead, OH. at 9-11 am on Friday, July 5th. The family requests that all wear colorful attire to help cherish her vibrant personality.
