She continued her education at Indiana University. On August 14, 1946, she was united in marriage to Hugh A. Wegner in Rochester. They lived in Sparta, WI, moved to Rochester in 1953 and later moved to Litchfield. She ran her own antique store for a short time in Litchfield. Jeannie was a member of the Eastern Star and volunteered at the hospital gift shop. Her faith was very important compelling her to be an active member of the United Methodist Church and UMW in Litchfield. Singing was a big part of Jeannie's life; whether singing with the South Fork Singers, singing in church or just singing around her home. Jeannie enjoyed entertaining, reading, and antiques. She loved playing Bridge and was a member of several Bridge clubs. Jeannie loved her family and displayed a phenomenal strength as a caregiver and devoted wife to Hugh for the last five years of his life. She is survived by her children Merle (and Denise) Wegner of Anchorage, AK, Karen Alger of Waite Park, Lisa (and Bobby) Hollingsworth of Nolensville, TN; 5 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
