Jeanne, the daughter of Anne and Samuel Carr, was born in London, England, on Oct. 4, 1922. She came to Atlanta as a war bride in 1946. Jeanne was a draftsman at General Electric, where she supervised an office of men, something almost unheard of in the 1960s. She took great pride in her career for her entire life. Jeanne was a union member of the IBEW and a Red Cross Grey Lady volunteer at the Veterans Affairs Hospital. She was also a member of the Congregation Or VeShalom Sisterhood and an active member of Temple Solel in Hollywood, Fla. While living at the Jewish Tower and then at the William Breman Jewish Home, she was known for making colorful and meticulously designed posters for all occasions. The posters brought great joy to so many. Her family thanks the staffs of the William Breman Jewish Home and Weinstein Hospice for the loving care they gave her.

Jeanne was preceded in death by son Errol Bagen and daughter Jaye Bagen. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Laury and Terri Bagen; loving grandchildren Matthew, David and Ethan (Erin) Bagen; and brother John Carr.
