OBITUARY

Jeanne G. Lintelman

14 February, 193110 January, 2021

Jeanne Louise George was born on February 14, 1931 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She grew up in Greenfield, PA where she enjoyed spending a great deal of time with her extended family. She loved “helping out” at her uncle’s drug store and was a fan of the soda fountain. Having a church organist for a mother meant that Jeanne also spent quite a bit of time at their neighborhood church. She attended secretarial school after graduating from Taylor Allderdice High School and worked as a secretary.

Jeanne met Paul Lintelman in school. They dated, got engaged and married before he was drafted to serve in the army. When he returned they bought a house in Oakmont, Pennsylvania where Paul had a job at Jeanne’s uncle’s hardware store. Soon a daughter, Gayle joined the family and was joined by Paul Jr. (Fritz) a few years later.

Jeanne and Paul were active members of church groups and taught Sunday school classes. Jeanne was a Stephen’s Minister and was a volunteer for CONTACT Helpline of Pittsburgh. She also worked in the Oakmont School District as a secretary, worked at the Cathedral of Learning on the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus, and assisted with pre-school classes at Beulah Presbyterian Church.

Jeanne and Paul later moved to Westerville, Ohio where they enjoyed spending time with Fritz and his family. After Paul died in 2004, Gayle encouraged Jeanne to move to Sun City, Texas. She spent 10 years enjoying Sun City living before she moved to a senior apartment community in Austin. She had fun participating in a variety of activities and made lots of new friend in her new place and got to see more of her daughter and her family. Her great-grandsons loved visiting with her.

Jeanne was known for her faith and her kind caring ways. She was always ready to share her faith or share a meal with family, friends and acquaintances. She frequently hosted family events and holidays, which usually included feeding the whole crew. She loved talking with everyone and asked many questions about their lives. She had a quick smile and was always ready to drop what she was doing to take time to pray with or for someone.

She said we should celebrate her death for now she is reborn and is in heaven with her Lord. She will be missed!

A family memorial will take place in the future. If you would like to honor Jeanne, call a neighbor, feed a friend, send a card to someone who needs cheering up, or make a donation to St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 12420 Hewitt Ln, Austin, TX 78748.

Jeanne and I were neighbors in Sun City and I am so glad to have
had her here to become a friend. She was a beautiful person inside
and outside. I am so glad to have been able to talk to her just before
Christmas, I will miss her like so many other folks.

I loved Jeanne's story because it truly reflected who she was to our St. John's family. She lit up our sanctuary when she wheeled in, always smiling and loving. Jeanne was so considerate and thoughtful, so often she just made me smile.

I know her family will miss her as we will. We raise you all in our prayers and thank the Lord for sharing her with us.

God bless you all.

Jeanne Lintelman will always be remembered in our Oakmont neighborhood for her constant smile, her kindness towards others and her hospitality to anyone who appeared at her door! My deepest sympathy to her family. She has set an example for all of us to live by and has left a legacy for her family to follow. May God’s blessings be with you in the days ahead!

I have no doubt that Aunt Jean made a difference on this Earth and her spirit will live on in my heart. She was such positive and supportive person. I will miss getting her heart fill cards. She loved her family and enjoyed sharing they’re celebrations and joys. I feel honored to have been part of her life. So many good times in her back yard pool, camping in the blue camper, Zoo, family gatherings, weddings and church. She loved us as much as we loved her. God bless you Jean and we will hold on to your wonderful memories.

I am writing this from the entire Erdeljac family, backyard neighbors with Jeanne, Paul (Mr & Mrs Lintelman), Gayle, & Fritz. Our yards bordered each other’s, but never a fence was raised. Of the 3 yards that bordered ours, theirs held no concern of crossing. In fact we were always welcome, whether it be to visit through the back door, or share in the relief from the summer heat in their pool. Seeing Jeanne at the kitchen window, or Grandma at the second story window, and sharing a wave was the picturesque image of childhood. Those days are past and now are both Paul & Jeanne.

To Gayle and Fritz, we all (especially Mary, Donna, and me John) send our hugs to you through these tough times. It’s trite, but the pain you feel is in proportion to the love you held.

Those days of “the gang” in our ragged clothes in the photo by the swings may be in the past but the memories are like it was just yesterday.

God Bless!

Aunt Jeanne was such a huge blessing to our family. I have so many wonderful memories of holidays, birthdays, swimming in the pool days, weddings, attending Beulah together and the list could go on. I’m so grateful for her always sharing Christ with me by her words & actions. Aunt Jeanne loved serving others. If she had you over for a meal, she would offer you so many choices. She was a great cook and baker. Her Lemon Pudding Cake is a huge hit with my friends! She was so proud of her hometown, Pittsburgh. Aunt Jeanne enjoyed any updates I would give her about people or places back “home”. I miss her tons already, but I know for certain where she is. That gives me peace and comfort. I will forever think of her and try to live my life like she did...pleasing our Lord and Savior.

Jeanne was in my small Bible study group in Sun City before she moved to Austin. We also both attended San Gabriel Presbyterian church. She was a lovely lady and liked by everyone.
