Jeannine T. Sconzert of Oswego passed away peacefully with her family by her side on November 6, 2010.
She was born in Montreal Canada, to the late Marie Claire and Edgar Joseph. She experienced the adventures of having lived in twelve states before settling in Oswego in 1965. Jeannine was a communicant of St. Mary’s church. Her husband Boniface predeceased her in 1983.
Jeannine was a people person and a dear friend to many; her beautiful smile and quick wit will be greatly missed. She was an exceptional wife, mother, grandmother and inspiration to her family and friends. Jeannine was a talented seamstress and enjoyed exercise classes at the YMCA, Bridge Club and playing golf with her many friends and beloved daughter.
Jeannine worked for Auxiliary Services at the State University College at Oswego for sixteen years and at the City of Oswego Personnel Department for eleven years, retiring in 1998. She was a volunteer for 10 years at the Oswego Hospital and an auxiliary at the Elk’s Lodge, where her homemade carrot cakes were in high demand.
Jeannine is survived by her son Perry (wife, Sharon) of Syracuse, daughter Carol (and friend Bill of California), two grandsons Philip and Bradley, four brothers, Rene (Josette), Maurice (Helene), Andre (Liette), Jean Louis (Renee). She was predeceased by two brothers Raynald and Patrick.
