With her family gathered around her, Eugenia C. "Jeannie" Giesseman, 58, of Greenville, passed away quietly Oct. 9, 2013, at Good Samaritan Hospital, Dayton.
She joins her mother and father, Eugene and Frances (Richardson) Enicks, and her sister-in-law Becky Giesseman, who preceded her in death.
Jeannie was born Sept. 3, 1955 and was a lifelong resident of Greenville, graduating from Greenville High School, Class of '74. She was married 30 years to her husband Scott Allen Giesseman.
Always ready with a smile and a laugh, Jeannie was full of life and enjoyed being with her family, especially the children. While having worked at different jobs over the years, the one she had the longest was the one she enjoyed the fullest, taking care of her nieces, nephews and the children of family friends. Jeannie attended the EUM Church of Greenville, enjoying the fellowship the church members offered.
She was proud of her sons, Duane and Jeremy. Duane, her oldest, is serving in the United States Army and has served a tour in Afghanistan. Jeremy is a graduate of Edison Community College in Accounting and is working while taking additional coursework in his field.
Jeannie will be missed by many, family and friends alike.
In addition to her husband Scott and her children, Duane and Jeremy, Jeannie is survived by her brothers and sisters, Steve Enicks of Greenville, Rodney and Bev Enicks of New Carlisle, Susan and Bob Robinson of Greenville, and Mary and Rick Elliott of Greenville; her nieces and nephews Christa, Sondra, Shawn, Chad, Stephanie, Matthew, Koryann, Christopher, Adam, Brandy, Kyle and Carly; her great nieces and nephews Aaron, Clara, Haley (Bug), Bella, Lucas, Blake, Bentley, Seth and Landyn; and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Randy and Mary Giesseman, Mark Giesseman, Craig and Shelly Giesseman and Alan and Deb Giesseman; and her best friend with whom she grew up, Susie Studebaker.
