Our amazing mother, Jeanette Louise (Zeboski) Richter, passed away peacefully on July 16, 2020, at the age of 78. She was born on October 25, 1941, married at age 19 to Robert Richter and they spent the next 59 years at each other’s side.

Jeanette devoted her life to Bob and their “crazy bunch” of fun-loving children and grandchildren. She was happiest when she was: • Baking for the fun of it and passing the goodies to family and friends • Working in the yard • Going on outdoor adventures such as canoeing, camping, hiking, skiing-- with a mob of us or just with Bob • Dancing to a good beat no matter where she was • Being a sassy, cool grandma • Cooking in a crowded kitchen surrounded by her family • Lovingly keeping Bob in line (a full-time job!)

Jeanette is survived by her adoring husband Bob, children Andrea (Larry) Rakowicz, Angela (Craig) England, Steve (Karen) Richter, and Kevin (Lisa) Richter, and her sister Joan Bernardoni. She is loved by 11 grandchildren: Kristen (Corey) Davis, Lauren (Ethan) Fuller and great grandson Wesley Fuller; Devin, Matt, & Danielle England; Jordan, Collin, & Kendyl Richter; Addison & Aubrey Richter

She was preceded in death by her brother, Joseph Zeboski, and her precious great grandson Quinn Davis.

Sympathy to all. Bob my thoughts and prayers are with you. The tribute was beautiful-cried thru the whole thing. Bless you all-just wish I could have been there-in thought I am. Jeanette was the brunt of all Bobs jokes--she took it like a real trooper.

One of my favorite memories with my mom is having tea Sitting at the table with her for hours drinking tea and eating one of her homemade baked goods which she had EVERY day. We could talk for hours. She did this with my friends in high school too. Tea with Mrs. Richter. They all came to talk to her.
