VERONA—Jeanne M. Brandt, age 75, passed away peacefully on Jan. 9, 2018. She was born on Jan. 24, 1942, the daughter of Arthur and Helen (Swift) Jakubec.

Jeanne enjoyed working, especially as a stewardess for Northwest Airlines and at 3M as a secretary before marriage and having children. Following the birth of her children, she went back to school to get degrees in Nursing and Social Work. She worked as a social worker in a group home for Catholic Charities until she was unable to work in 1996. She was a devout Catholic and was a member of Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church. Jeanne loved being a mom and grandma. She diligently attended all of her children’s activities and loved baking for her family. Jeanne brought joy to everyone she met, everywhere she went.

She is survived by her children, Peter Brandt and Caroline Burger; and her grandchildren, Abigail Burger and Bryce Burger.

She was preceded in death by her ex-husband, Erwin Brandt.

Per Jeanne’s request, no services will take place.
