Jeanne Mary Kranz - Southport

Jeanne Mary Kranz - SouthportJeanne Mary Kranz of Southport, formerly of the Washington, DC area, passed away Thursday, March 28, 2013 at Dosher Memorial Hospital, after a quick fight with COPD that she was not strong enough to win.

Jeanne was born in Chicago, IL, to the late Albert Lubin and Evelyn Binderman. She retired as a Budget Analyst with the Department of the Interior after more than two decades of “pushing numbers around.”

Jeanne is survived by her partner, Anne Henschel, with whom she shared nearly 24 incredible years. She also leaves behind sons Adam (Lori) of San Diego, CA, and David of Dumfries, VA, and daughter Julie of Santa Barbara, CA. The pride of her recent years was the birth of Adam and Lori’s son, Kyle. Her two other grandchildren, Alex and Regan, also live in California. Other survivors include her aunt, Florence Binderman, brother, Jimmy Lubin, sister Joyce Owens, and all the members of Anne’s family, including Anne’s son Christopher Warner, who considered Jeanne to be a second Mom.

Jeanne loved living in Southport. She loved her home in Arbor Creek, the many friends she made since moving here, the spectacular sunsets, her lunches at Dry Street Pub & Pizza, and southern sweet tea. She will be remembered for her quick wit, her ability to talk to anyone about anything, her braided pony tail, and all the love and support she gave her partner.

Jeanne’s ashes will be scattered in Southport and a celebration of life held at a future date; she loved the warm springtime weather so she will be honored when the weather improves.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be to the US Holocaust Museum, Washington DC in Jeanne’s name.

Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral and Cremation Service, Southport
