Jeneanne Carol (Page) Bennington, 87, of rural New Philadelphia died during the early hours of May 18, 2022, at Country Club Center in Dover, following a period of declining health.
Born in Dennison on August 30, 1934, Jeneanne was one of eight children of the late Everett J. and Jennie Mae (Lahm) Page. She graduated from Uhrichsville High School in 1952. On March 11, 1955, she married the late Norman G. Bennington, with whom she spent forty-six years before his death on June 15, 2001. Also preceding her in death are her five brothers: Jerry Page, Gerald “Bud” Page, Everett Page Jr., Larry Page, and Jimmy Page; a son Norman “Butch” Bennington, who died in 2015, and a daughter Janice Sue Bennington, who died in 1989.
Jeneanne worked at various places throughout her life, including the glove factory in Uhrichsville, H&R Block, and was the record keeper for Norm’s Plumbing and Wiring, but she was most proud of the fact that she was a homemaker. She enjoyed reading her Bible, singing, and being a country girl who loved horses. Later in life, when she was living at Jennie’s, she loved playing with Bella, the family dog.
Surviving are two children: Jennie (John) Reichman of New Philadelphia, and William A. (Bobbi) Bennington of Newcomerstown; four grandchildren: John Reichman II, Jim (Shana) Reichman, Butchie (Karla) Bennington, and Kody (Sarah) Bennington; five great-grandchildren: Ridge Reichman, Chase Reichman, Austin (fiancé Chelsea Grove) Reichman, Ethan Bennington, and Cameron Bennington; and two sisters: Mary Jo Fouts and Sara Jane (Wayne) Devore.
A memorial service will be held at a later date at Country Club Center in Dover. Memorial contributions may be made to Crossroads Hospice Charitable Foundation, 10810 E. 45th Street, Suite 300, Tulsa, OK 74146.
