Born on August 28, 1934, she passed away in peace, resting comfortably at home. Jeanne spent her later years reading, walking her dog, and living happily in her beautiful residence located at the foot of Diamond Head. Jeanne became quite successful from a young age. Her joy of traveling took her to exotic, worldwide destinations. Jeanne was very passionate about living life fully. As a longtime member of the Outrigger, she enjoyed Lychee martinis, oceanfront sunsets, live Hawaiian music, fresh fish, and entertaining friends.
Jeanne was a strong influence in lives here and abroad. Her life work was directed towards helping under privileged youth. An important desire to assist students born and raised in Hawaii in order to attend Chaminade University. Serving as a board member at Chaminade was another highlight that she fondly mentioned. The philanthropist Jeanne wanted to help keep up the glory, culture and history of Hawaii. The Bishop Museum was another organization she served as a board member and gave generously for many years.
Jeanne is survived by her children, Michael Anderson and Malia Anderson Vandervoort, and grandchildren, Hans Vandervoort, Vanessa Vandervoort, Davey Anderson, and great-granddaughter, Iwa Vandervoort. Jeanne was predeceased by her daughter, Maile Elizabeth Anderson.
A small ceremony will be held at a later date to be determined.
