OBITUARY

Jeane Ann Herscher

October 13, 1954October 11, 2021

Jeane Ann Herscher passed in peace, Monday, October 11th, 2021, at her home in St. Albans, WV. Her final days were spent with the family and friends that she loved so dearly.

Jeane Ann was a kind person that never held a grudge and always saw the best in everyone. She was a believer; she believed she could do anything and that you could too. She was a caring person whose life was spent helping others, listening to conversations both spoken and unspoken. Jeane Ann was a fiercely loyal friend, keeper of secrets, and teller of truths. She was also a world class storyteller. She could take a seemingly mundane moment and spin it into the most exciting tale you’d ever heard. She told jokes with equal enthusiasm and would often pulls pranks with a wink. In addition to her sense of humor, Jeane Ann was hard working and intelligent. She graduated from St. Albans High School, earned a master’s degree from Marshall University, and went on to retire from a long and successful career with the Kanawha County Board of Education. Although she was also beautiful and athletic, she was never arrogant; she always had a calm confidence that drew others to her. Animals were also drawn to Jeane Ann, and she loved and cared for them all. Her adventurous spirit was deeply connected to nature, and she always felt at peace in the woods. She will be profoundly missed as she embarks on this new adventure. She is survived by her mother and very best friend, Doris Herscher, sister Mary Beth Parsons, and brothers Thomas Herscher (Dianne)and David Herscher(Tracie) and many nieces and nephews She is predeceased by her father, Edward Herscher (1974), and brother William Herscher (2007).

A memorial service will be held on October 29th, in the St. Albans High School Auditorium. Visitation will begin at 6:00 pm, and the service will follow at 7:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The Bill and Jeane Ann Herscher Foundation, PO Box 418, St. Albans, WV 25177.

Jeane Ann. Oh how the memories flood my mind back to high school. She was the rock of our little group, always supportive and always there for you. Although I moved away and lost touch with the group, the memories will be forever cherished. Sincere condolences to the family💐.

The WV Board of Examiners in Counseling would like to offer our sincere condolences in the lost of your loved one. Jeane was highly regarded in her chosen field as a licensed professional counselor. Because of her dedication and the willingness to give back to the profession, she choose to serve the Board of Examiners in Counseling as a complaint investigator. This is something that she chose to do on her own personal time. She was very thorough and fair and made sure that all she came into contact with with felt comfortable and most importantly, respected. When she retired, her absence was truly felt.
On behalf of the entire Board, again, we offer our deepest condolences and please know that she will be truly missed.

Jeane was a Big sister than many of us didn’t have growing up in St.Albans. She always encouraged us to have fun but kept us out of trouble, most of the time. Like the time, Bill and I had our first beer or two at the Lower Falls, little house. Thanks for sharing many good times and memories. Greg Chaney

My heartfelt condolences to Doris, MaryBeth, Tommy and David. They were our next door neighbor for a while in Riverlake until they moved to a big house they built on the corner. What a happy loving family. I’ve attached a picture of Jeane Ann sitting next to me on the left (I have a white top on). This picture was when we would play school and I would teach the younger kids reading, writing. It’s nice having memories of bygone times of just enjoying being a kid and they include the Herscher’s. Prayers of peace and comfort for the family.
