Born: August 27, 1921
Death: September 28, 2016


Jeanne Miller Waite slipped peacefully away from this life on September 28, 2016, at Porter Hills in Grand Rapids, MI. She was born in Charleston, WV in 1921, and was the last surviving child of parents Vernon and Grace Miller. Jeanne married William F. Waite in 1946 and, during their 44 years together before his death in 1990, they raised two fine daughters, Marilyn (David) Fernstrum of Ada, MI, and Lisa (David) Kidd of Bremerton, WA. In addition to her children, Jeanne is survived by four grandchildren, five great grandchildren, five nieces and nephews and their children, all of whom have remained close. She loved raising her babies and grandbabies, playing golf, bridge, college football (Roll Tide! Go Bucks!), and hearing or telling a good (and sometimes naughty) joke. But most of all, she loved the delightful people and many great friends that blessed her long life in Ohio, Virginia, Alabama and finally, Michigan. Her love, liveliness and laughter will be missed.  A celebration of life service will be held on Dec.10th at 11:00 AM at Cook Valley Estates, 1049 E. Paris Ave. S.E, Grand Rapids.  Please make any memorial donations to your local Humane Society or the Porter Hills Foundation.
