Jeanne Catherine Sandstrom, 80, of Keewaydin St., Negaunee, passed away peacefully Tuesday evening, February 23, 2021 at the Marquette County Medical Care Facility, following a two-year battle with dementia.

Jeanne was born December 17, 1940 in Ishpeming to Turri and Edith (Olson) Sandstrom, graduated from Negaunee High School, Class of 1958 and was a lifelong area resident. She attended Northern Michigan College and graduated with a two-year medical secretary degree. She soon went to work as a medical secretary for 19 years at Eye Associates of Marquette, and then another 19 years at Hematology/Oncology before retiring. She married Ronald J. McGlone on March 4, 1988 in a double ceremony with her sister, Anne and Paul Weisel.

Mrs. Sandstrom was an active and devout member of Bethany Lutheran Church, Negaunee, where she sang in the church choir and taught Sunday school for numerous years. She also served on the church council and enjoyed the quilting group every week. Jeanne was also active in the local community, serving as a past president of the Friends of the Negaunee Library, sang in the St. Paul Ecumenical Concert Choir for over 20 years, and was a past board member of the Negaunee Historical Society. She was an animal lover and had numerous dogs and cats throughout her life. She was a big supporter of UPAWS, from where she got her last two dogs.

Jeanne’s favorite place was the family camp on Little Shag Lake, where she loved entertaining and evening boat rides around the lake with her dogs riding right up front. She liked to have a good time, and always enjoyed a good laugh at work or out with her friends. Other favorites were flower gardening and going to Venice, FL for numerous years. She was an avid reader of novels and was always on the lookout for a good book to read. Jeanne and Ron loved golfing and were members at Wawonowin Country Club many years.

Surviving are her loving husband, Ronald McGlone; her sister, Anne Weisel; a nephew, Mark (Catherine) Johnson; two nieces, Vicky (Scott) Nokleby and Lynn (Alan) Demers; two step-sons, Shawn (Vehida) and Duane (Ivy) McGlone; and three cousins in the Marquette area: Bruce (Tinky) Sandstrom, Mary (Paul) L’Huillier and Janet (Bob) Barton. She was affectionately known as ‘loving Grandma Jeanne,’ to 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a step-son, Shane McGlone; brother-in-law, Paul Weisel; and many aunts and uncles.

Memorial services will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, June 17th at Bethany Lutheran Church, Negaunee, with Pastor Michael Holman officiating. Interment will be in the Negaunee Cemetery. The family will greet relatives and friends for one hour prior to services at the church on Thursday, and also at luncheon immediately following services in the church fellowship hall.

Jeanne and myself retired at the same time: January 1st 2000. We both worked for Doctors. We went to Arizona one year from the Winter, same area. Ron and Jeanne had to get a house because they always traveled with dogs. We where able to rent a condo unit near them. We enjoyed doing the same things and spent our days in the pool and planning where the next dinner would be. Ron loved to cook so we often went to their rental unit, bringing the Dessert. Most of our time was in Florida. We did boat rides together and went to other scenic places. Jeanne and myself where in the hospital axillary together and enjoyed going to those Christmas parties etc. We also exchange books that we would buy when we winter out of our area. We became great friends and we where sadden when it became apparent that she would not be able to do this. My last visit was in the Fall when the Elks started making pasties and we would buy one for her and Ron. I went to see her and she told me to look behind her, she has tons of books piled up and she told me she could not read anymore. My heart went out to her, was sadden that the fun times we had together as couples had stopped. Gloria Lakari

For a long time we had the privilege of having contact with my cousin Jeanne and her Ron and of course we have been able to follow their activities through all photographs we have received from their home, travels, golfing and boat trips and not to forget their two beautiful dogs Jack and Jill. It was, of course, so very sad news we got yesterday that Jeanne has passed away. We would like to express our warm condolences to Ron and all close relatives. Our thoughts are with you all. May you have strength in the days ahead. Bernice and Bo-Erik

I was sorry to hear of Jeanne’s passing away. I always will remember her willingness to pitch in with any project we were doing. She especially loved to work with the students at the Miners Park. The NBC and the whole community has lost a special lady. And I have lost a friend.

I have many fond memories of Jeanne, both as a little girl swimming and playing in the sunshine at Little Shag Lake and in more recent years gathering for our annual “Cousin’s Christmas”. My dad (her “Uncle Sandy) thought the world of her, as did my mom. My husband and I returned to Marquette after we retired to be near family. We will surely miss Jeanne and regret not having had more time to spend with her. Heaven has a new angel with a kind heart and a beautiful voice!
