Jeannine Anne Lobdell

Hartland, Vt. — Jeannine Anne Lobdell, born Sept. 15, 1951, daughter of John and Florence Lobdell, departed Sunday morning, Oct. 27, 2013, after a long battle with ALS. She is survived by her daughter Nikki King; grandsons Damien, Austin, Ryan, and Justin; her son Sean Smith; daughter-in-law Marilyn Smith, and grandson Benton.

Jeannine graduated Windsor High School in 1970, had some classes at UNH, and worked at Vermont Real Log Homes for about 30 years. Jeannine loved her family, horses, gardening, sewing, and staying up chatting into the wee hours of the night. She was full of ingenuity. She always looked young for her age, and was articulate in her speech. Jeannine adored her children and grandchildren. She will be missed dearly by them and her many friends.

A “Celebration of Life” will be held in her honor at the town hall in Plainfield, N.H., Rte. 12A, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013. All are welcome to attend. For details or donations, contact Marilyn Smith 802-738-4058 or Nikki King 802-436-1133.
