Tribute to Jeanne

wedding anniversary flowers


Jeanne Marlene (Falkenstein) Thole
Born June 2nd, 1937
Passed away September 1st, 2013

Jeanne was born at Mercy Memorial hospital in Benton Harbor, MI to Paul and Nina Falkenstien, and she was the apple of their eye. Jeanne graduated from St. Joseph High School in St Joseph, MI and then went onto college at Michigan State University in Lansing, MI where she graduated with a BS in Horticulture and Floral Design.

But that does not sum up who Jeanne was, she was a fantastic person that loved everyone. She was hard to not get along with! Jeanne worked here in the shop, even when her father Paul managed it for the House of David, this was not her only job, as a teenager she also worked in the gardens and gift shops at the House of David Amusement Park Benton Harbor, Michigan. She also was very proud of riding on the award winning floats made by the House of David in the Blossom Time Parade. Henry and Jeanne married in 1971, and moved into their home across the street from the greenhouses. In 1979, Henry and she purchased the greenhouse from the House of David. The both of them worked together before marriage and after here in the shop, they were a great team!

Not only was Jeanne a hard worker, but she also loved to play. Dogs and cats were very important to her, animals just spoke to her and she could not let an animal be unloved. One of her favorite pass times was to ride in the Corvette with Henry, riding up to Holland for Sherman's Ice Cream and to see the leaves change colors!

Jeanne was very family oriented she loved to spend time with her loved ones, and loved the Holidays as well. Swimming in their pool was another love that Jeanne had, she finally learned to swim in the 1980's! Enjoyed books and shopping, and loved country concerts and comedians! Another favorite for Jeanne was class reunions and getting to see friends from high school! Her favorite trip she made with Henry was out to California for the Rose Bowl when the Michigan State University Football Team made it to the bowl game in Pasadena!

Jeanne was one of the most loving and caring people there was. When anyone came into the shop or called on the phone, Jeanne made everyone feel special and important, it was her passion. She is missed greatly every day, but she led a full life and is now at peace. We will see her again someday!
