Schnacke, Jeanne P.

Nov 16, 2016

Jeanne P. Schnacke, 96, a long-time former resident of Wetzel County, died on November 9, 2016 at Mass General Hospital in Boston, MA. All four of her children had the honor of being present.

Jeanne and her husband Dick founded and ran the Mountain Craft Shop (folktoys.com) which still operates in Proctor. Jeanne served in leadership capacities in and around New Martinsville for many years, always ready to volunteer her time and talents.

She has donated her body to Boston University’s Anatomy Gift program. The family plans to celebrate her life at a future date in Hawaii (one of her favorite spots). Along with her children and their spouses, Jeanne leaves eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Jeanne was a charter member of the League of Women Voters of Wetzel County, a charter member of PEO Chapter U, and a Sunday school teacher at Limestone Methodist Church in New Martinsville.

She would be honored for any donations made in her name to any of these organizations.
