Jeanette Wilson, 90

J eanette Wilson passed away on Monday, Sept. 27, 2010, at The Orchard Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre in Granville.
Jeanette was born on Sept. 12, 1920, in Granville, the daughter of Hugh Morgan and Helen (Roberts) Evans.
Jeanette graduated from Granville High School in 1936 and the New York State Teachers College in 1941. Jeanette married John L. Wilson on Thanksgiving Day in 1942 at her grandparents’ home on 3 Washington St. in Granville. John and Jeanette lived in this same home for a time in their retirement years. During the early years of World War II, Jeanette began her teaching career in White River Junction, Vt.  Following the war, she and John resided in the Schenectady and Guilderland area where Jeanette worked as a librarian and English teacher in the Guilderland School district for the rest of her career. She retired from there in 1979.
In keeping with her education, Jeanette was an avid reader, her favorite genre being mysteries. Many children were the beneficiaries of her passion for reading, education and the English language. Jeanette was also a gardener. She and John traveled extensively throughout the continental United States and Europe. They “wintered” in Hawaii and San Diego, among other places, in their retirement years.
Jeanette was predeceased by her husband John, on Sept. 12, 1997.
She is survived by her two sons, Evan of Guilderland and Ethan of Brookfield. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Emily, Matthew, Caitlyn, Brent, Ryan and Anna; and two great-granddaughters, Sophia and Adalyn.
