Jeanine Isabel Clemens
Jeanine Isabel Clemens, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away at age 89 at her home in Avondale, Arizona on January 26, 2021. She was born Jeanine I. Blair in Vancouver, British Columbia on July 25, 1931. Upon her marriage to Keith R.

As her children grew, she went back to college to pursue a degree in business and became a U.S. citizen. She worked as an Accounting Assistant at Harborview Medical Center until her retirement in 1990. After retirement, she had various homes in Arizona and Nevada. She loved the sunny, warm weather of the Southwest and made friends wherever she went.
Jeanine loved to read and enjoyed caring for her dog, Karma. Proud of her Scottish heritage, she enjoyed a trip to Scotland in 2002. She was an active member of Avondale Baptist Church.
