Jeanne was the face and voice of the Iowa Hospital Association for thousands of Iowa hospital auxilians and volunteers. She was a true inspiration to everyone she came in contact with. Jeanne had a true love of life and believed in living every moment of it. She began as a volunteer with Broadlawns Hospital in 1961 and went on to serve on the Board of Trustees for nearly 20 years including two terms as Chairman of the Board. She was still actively involved in the management of the hospital gift shop.

As Iowa Hospital Association's Auxiliary Volunteer Liaison, Jeanne provided 33 years of service to the Association across the state. She was the driving force behind the first Iowa Hospital Association legislative day, which now attracts nearly 1000 hospital advocates each year.

Jeanne was born in Des Moines, and a graduate of Roosevelt High School. She was a member of Central Presbyterian Church and enjoyed reading, needlework and following sports, especially the Chicago Cubs baseball team.

Jeanne is survived by her daughter, Patricia Heskett of Des Moines; son, Mark (Diane) Miller of Des Moines; two grandchildren; and two great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Elmer L. Miller.

Memorials may be made to Kavanagh House, American Cancer Society, or Broadlawns Hospital Guild.

Jeanne will not only be missed by her family and close friends, but by the thousands of people whose lives she touched through the years.
