    Jeane is the reason I am a teacher. She took a chance on me and hired me when I started UMSL. I stayed at Faith Child World for 3.5 years until I did my student teaching. My freshman year I was a politics major. She told me “You’d make a great teacher.” 25 years later, here I am. Thank you, Jeane, for all the lives you touched. You will never be forgotten.

    We have many fond memories of growing up with the Rossbach kids. 1st cousins and good friends. Jeane was special to me because she tried to teach me to play piano. I was not talented but she never criticized. She will be missed.

    We have many fond memories of times with your family…Fran via Brenda from Jr. High on, and Dennis since Fran was in High School. Those memories would be incomplete without your mom. She was lively and fun, and a tad unpredictable. She touched many lives. We are so very sorry for your loss. With you in spirit…Fran and Dennis

    Sorry for your loss. Jeane was an amazing lady. She was full of love and joy. She was an example of a Godly Woman and touched so many lives. I enjoyed teaching with her and sharing many laughs! When I visited her about 8 weeks ago she still had the most amazing smile that lit up the room. Just to sit by her and hold her hand and tell her all the blessings she brought to my life. Rejoicing that she is in the arms of her Savior– rejoicing and praising His name with her beautiful voice!! Praying for the entire family as they walk through this time if sorrow– hold fast to God’s promises and know one say you will see her again in heaven!! May the peace that passes all understanding be yours. God Bless each of you. Remember that God cares for each of you!!

    Sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, I have many fond memories when were growing and we were either at Grandma and grandpa’s or at our place. You mother actually lived with my mom and dad for a while when she began teaching and wasn’t married yet. She was a great lady. We will pray for you family in the mourning of your mother.
