She is survived by her loving husband of 56 years, Roland (Ron), her daughter, Jeannine (Todd) Rose her sister, Bernice (Bernie) Caruso and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Jeanne was preceded in death by her brothers, Joseph (Joey), Michael (Mickey) and Robert (Bob) Malenic, a brother-in-law, George Caruso and two nephews, Mark A. and Michael A. Malenic.
