On November 25, 2022, Jeanne Moomaw Chapman, 80, embraced her Lord and Savior after a short battle with leukemia.
Born on October 17th, 1942 she grew up in Smithville, Ohio the daughter of the late Paul William and Hazel Mae Hartzler Moomaw. She graduated from Smithville High School in 1960. On November 10, 1963 she married Tom Chapman, who survives, and was devoted to him for 59 years. They resided with their 4 daughters in Jeromesville then Red Haw, OH.
Jeanne was a remarkable gift to her family and worked at Rubbermaid for 38 years. She attended Maranatha Baptist Church with her family, then West Hill Baptist Church, then Red Haw United Methodist Church when she needed to assemble closer to her home. Jeanne will be remembered for her compassion, sacrificial love for her family and keen sense of humor. She enjoyed creating family keepsakes, reading, crossword puzzles, music and her feline companions.
She was dearly cherished by her siblings, daughters, grandchildren and friends. Surviving are her sister Geraldine Marthey, brother Doyle Moomaw and her children: Angela Spell (Dave) of Greentown, IN, Linda Wilder (Phil), Sandra Grassman (Charles) both of Wooster and Susan Porter (Michael) of Carmel, IN, and 9 grandchildren: Verayna Newland (Dustin) and Evan Spell, Landon and Laura Wilder, Jared and Nicolas Grassman, and Claire Pendleton (Jacob), Caroline and Ethan Porter.
Jeanne was preceded in death by her father and mother and brothers Jim, Ray, Paul Jr., Carl and Donald Moomaw.
Jeanne’s husband and children anticipate the day when they will all be reunited. Until then, her memory will remain in their hearts. God has told us in 1 Thessalonians 5:10 (NLT) “Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when He returns, we can live with Him forever.”
Private family services were held with burial in the Paradise Church of the Brethren Cemetery.
