Jeanne Hannemann Cantrell

Her fun-loving spirit, infectious smile, and sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her.

Jeanne Hannemann Cantrell passed away peacefully in Tacoma, Washington, on October 29, 2019. She was born and raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At the age of 9, Jeanne started dancing in shows at the famous Steel Pier, on the Atlantic City boardwalk. In 1942, at age 16, she joined the war effort by auditioning for the Rockettes. She danced with a troupe and toured with celebrities in USO shows throughout the United States until the end of the war. After the war, she married Carl D. Hannemann and they had three children.

In 1962 Jeanne began a career at Bank of America as a teller and ultimately became a branch manager before she retired. Jeanne was an active member of the Methodist Church and served in leadership positions in United Methodist Women.

Her fun-loving spirit, infectious smile, and sense of humor will be missed by all who knew her.

Jeanne is survived by her three children, Pamela Walker (Michael) of South Pasadena, California, Brian Hannemann (Denise) of Fort Myers, Florida, and Kathy Hannemann (Carolyn) of Vashon Island, Washington. She is also survived by two grandchildren, Kate Walker, of Austin, Texas, Daniel Walker, of Austin, Texas, and one great-grandson, Wolfie Richardson.
