Obituary for Georgene Marie "Jeanne" Leber

Georgene Marie "Jeanne" Leber
Of Palatine

Georgene Marie Leber entered the gates of heaven passing away on April 24, 2018, surrounded by her devoted husband and adoring children. Georgene, known as Jeanne to her family and friends, was born on August 25,193? in Chicago, IL to George and Mildred Wall.

Jeanne wanted to be remembered as someone who cared, was thoughtful, and loved.

In her last few days her mind remained sharp and her sense of humor keen as ever. All the goodness and kindness inside her came pouring out as she continued to try and comfort her family. Jeanne was tough and strong and fought her disease with courage and grace to the end.

Jeanne was full of life. She loved anything that represented beauty and creativity. She was an accomplished dancer and painter. When she was not nurturing her children, she was active in her church. As one of the founding members of St. Edna’s Catholic Church, Jeanne was involved in the Women’s Club, Eucharistic Ministry, Ministry of Care, Bingo, Liturgy committee, confirmation teacher and, of course, always a part of the St. Edna’s variety show. She also was an avid sports fan and never missed her children’s events.

Jeanne is survived by the love of her life, William Edward Leber, recently celebrating 60 years of marriage, and her six children Lynn (Michael) Pehanich, Bill (Stacey) Leber, Mark (Pam) Leber, Dean (Maureen) Leber, Pamela (Jim) Harkness and Jennifer (Mark) Bell. She was the cherished grandmother “Mimi” of nine grandchildren, Delaney, Kyle, Wil, Michala, Robert, Meghan, Karly, Jimmy, and Gus. She was the dear sister of Charlotte Gerami and the late Laverne Bertagnolli and favorite aunt of too many to count.

A celebration of Jeanne’s life will be held Friday, May 4th at St. Edna’s Catholic Church, 2525 N Arlington Heights Rd, Arlington Heights, IL 60004. Her family will receive guests from 9:00 am until time of Mass at 11:00 am.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Jeanne’s name can be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105.

The Leber family would like to thank all the wonderful people at Journey Care Hospice for their loving care.
