Text size

L. Jean Greenlee, of Sandy Lake, passed away peacefully on Feb. 15, 2018, at the age of 90. She was born on July 3, 1927, to the late Arthur "Ray" and Juanita Alfretta Deitrick Rosenberger in Pleasantville.
Jean graduated from nurse's training from the Oil City Hospital Cadet Nurses Training Program.
She married her beloved husband, Craig H. Greenlee, on Nov. 24, 1948.
Jean was known throughout Sandy Lake and Stoneboro for her gentle and compassionate skills as a nurse for Dr. J.C. File. She had also worked as a nurse at Polk State School and Hospital. Even though she was an excellent nurse, she was also an exceptional pianist. Jean began playing organ and piano for church at age 12 and continued playing organ and piano through her early 80s. Not only did she play for church, she played for numerous weddings and at many nursing homes. She always felt that this was her treasured gift from God, and she shared that gift unselfishly.
Jean was a woman with a great faith in her Lord and Savior. She had a deep love for her Lord. Over her lifetime, she taught Sunday school, helped with VBS, helped lead choir and was a long-time member of the Women's Missionary Society of North Sandy UP Church. After leaving North Sandy, Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Sandy Lake was her home church where she also played piano for several years.,
Jean is survived by her husband, Craig; three children, Sandy (Dave) Bachman, Jackson Center, Michael (Brenda) Greenlee, Cochranton, and Carol (Bruce) Hoffman, Millbrook, where she was currently living; daughter-in-law, Christine Greenlee, Cape Coral, Fla., and a brother, Arthur R. (Myrtle) Rosenberger of Pleasantville. She is also survived by seven grandsons, six granddaughters, 31 great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter.
In addition to her parents, Jean was preceded in death by her son, the Rev. Dr. Terry L. Greenlee; one infant grandchild; and five great-grandchildren.
Memorials may be made in Jean's name to the VNA Hospice, 154 Hindman Road, Butler, PA 16001.
