Schirmer, Jeanne A.

Saginaw Twp., Michigan

Our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and dear friend passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, July 22, 2022. She was 92 years old. Jeanne Ashbaugh Schirmer was born on December 8, 1929 in Pontiac, Michigan to the late Jeanette (Peterson) and Herbert G. Ashbaugh. She attended Arthur Hill High School, graduating in 1948. She graduated from DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree. She married Charles A. (Chuck) Schirmer on January 17, 1953, and together they had five children, who were her pride and joy. Jeanne was a member of the Saginaw Club and also a member of Junior League and enjoyed many years involved in Garden Club. She loved to cook and play bridge. She traveled with her sister, Pat, and her sister’s husband, Brad, to Europe on two river boat cruises and spent many memorable summers with her family at Point Lookout. Her family brought her the greatest joy and her life was devoted to them.
