— SUNBURY — Jeanette L. Schleig, 86, of 459 N. Fourth St., passed into eternity to be with her Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013.

She was born Aug. 19, 1927, in Sunbury, a daughter of the late Harry and Lillian (Neitz) Troup. On April 24, 1946, she married Kenneth Schleig, who preceded her in death after 63 years of marriage.

Jeanette was a 1945 graduate of Sunbury High School.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Artie and Harry Jr., and three sisters, Lois, Barbara and Phyllis.

She was a good mother who will be missed until we meet her again on the other side.

We want to thank our family, friends and neighbors for all you have done for our mom these past several years. Our hearts are touched by your kindness.
