Lajeanne Leveton

Obituary

Lajeanne Leveton passed away on Thursday, November 11, 2021, at the age of 70.  She was born in Monroe, Michigan on August 8, 1951.

She had many passions.   At heart she was an historian, feeling at home in any era.  Books spanning the dynasties of ancient Egypt or the works of Winston Churchill, among countless other subjects, line her bookshelves. Literary fiction delighted her, especially the novels of Jane Austen.  A good biography never passed her up. That Robert Caro’s last volume in his LBJ series, when published, will not find her saddens us.  Additionally, Lajeanne petitioned for wildlife rights, fought for the environment and did not shy from political causes. She was a devoted mother who cherished her two sons and husband. Her cat and dog dearly miss her.

Lajeanne graduated with honors from Miami Coral Park High, Florida and later attended Santa Fe College in Jacksonville, excelling in its nursing program. Her work as an RN spanned almost 30 years across several major hospitals in the Jacksonville area.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Leila May Jennings and her father, Clarence Eugene Jennings.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Alan Leveton; sons, Michael and Joshua Leveton and his wife Shelley; her six grandchildren, Richard (Nate), Aidan (Joseph), Mathew (Alan), Edward, Roan and Kellan Selznick-Leveton.  Lajeanne also leaves behind many in-laws and their children, along with cousins, friends and her adorable Devon Rexes, Hilary and Brodie, and Poodle Bichon, Clare.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Community Hospice or a wildlife charity such as The Wilderness Society in Washington D.C., or The Snow Leopard Trust in Seattle, Washington (two of her many favorite organizations).
