DeGROAT, Jeannie M. (Landolfi) of Avon, passed away peacefully on February 21, 2021, surrounded by her loving family at the age of 86. Jeannie was raised and educated in Boston, attended Boston Latin in Dorchester and worked for many years as a secretary. Jeannie had a passion for dancing, music, knowledge and spending time with her loving family. She loved all types of dance, especially ballroom and tap. She had a great admiration for playing the piano and even taught some of her children and grandchildren how to play. She was an avid Boston sports fan, especially the Red Sox, and always looked forward to her yearly trips to Fenway to see her favorite team. She enjoyed playing Trivia with her grandchildren, watching and playing along with Jeopardy (always knowing the answers), and enjoyed a good debate. She looked forward to her trips to Cape Cod where she would enjoy some of her favorite seafood dishes, her yearly visits to the local fair, as well as her adventures to the North End of Boston with her beloved children and grandchildren. She was incredibly social and could spike up a meaningful conversation with just about anyone. Jeannie will forever be remembered as a devoted mother to all her children and was always there for them, from attending sporting events to spending valuable time together, always making sure her children got to experience all of life’s opportunities. She was a kind and loving woman whose greatest joy in life came from spending time with those she loved. Jeannie will be sorely missed by all who were blessed to have known her but will live on in the many beautiful memories made. Beloved wife of the late Wesley DeGroat.
