Marilyn Jeane Heller

Jeane Heller, December 1, 1929 – February 10, 2023

Loving wife of the late Kenneth Heller; daughter of the late Irvin Sobelman and the late Elizabeth Curtis; beloved mother of Steffy Neidenberg, Donna Waldman (Mark), Bob Heller (Agnes); dear grandmother of Cori Neidenberg, Matt Neidenberg (Stefanie), James Bruce (Jade), Marni Waldman Goldberg (Ben), Justin Waldman (Lindsay), Alex Heller and Nic Heller (Tori); dear great-grandmother of Marin, Nolan, Owen and Elliot; dear sister of the late Ruth Weinberg (late Mel); dear sister-in-law of Stanley Heller (Susan); dear aunt and friend to everyone she met.

Jeane Sobelman married Ken Heller when she was just shy of 19 years old, fresh out of high school. They were married for 72 years. After raising their family in St. Louis, Kenny retired and they began living their dream of traveling around the U.S in their motor home while also visiting 12 countries. Finally settling in Florida for 22 years, they enjoyed their time fishing, boating, swimming and made many close friends.

They moved back to St. Louis in 2016 to be close to family. As the family expanded and some members moved away from St. Louis, family gatherings became very important.

Jeane was most happy when surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Thank you to Karen and her team of caregivers for their loving care of Jeane  and also the front desk ladies at Brookdale Creve Coeur who continually watched out for her wellbeing.
