Jeanne Marie Monroe

Posted by Andrew Shi

Jeanne Marie Monroe, 53, of Oak Street, passed away Sunday, Dec. 30, at Saratoga Hospital.

She was a housekeeper at Skidmore for the past 16 years. An avid reader, Monroe loved to travel, was fond of her pets and enjoyed collectibles.

The wit she garnered from her books, travels and life experiences, manifested itself in her brilliant sense of humor. "You had to really think about what she said in order to get some of her jokes" Richard Mickus, manager of custodial operations, said.

Mickus, speaking on behalf of her coworkers, said, "We're really going to miss her in the department. Jeanne was the kind of person who would always do something on behalf of others, even if it meant going without herself." 

Instead of flowers, it is requested that memorial contributions be made to the Saratoga County Animal Shelter, 6010 Farm Road, Ballston Spa, NY 12020.

No calling hours or service calls have been scheduled.

Jeanne will be dearly missed.
