Jeanne Karen Seger was born on March 2, 1945 in Faribault, MN to Vern and Grace (West) Seger. She graduated from Bethlehem Academy High School.

Several years later, the couple moved to Chatfield, MN and Jeanne began teaching at St. Charles High School. For over 17 years, she taught English at the high school. Being a teacher, with her summers free, she could be found in her garden on a daily basis. The couple moved to Rochester in the early 1990’s, where she taught in the Rochester School District. She was a lifelong, energetic fan of the Minnesota Twins. She will be deeply missed.

So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. It was nice that you could be with her. Keep your memories close as they will always be with you in days to come.
I have so many fond memories of Jean. She was my English teacher when I went to St, Charles. I always appreciate her passion about teaching us new ways to look at life. She loved her family so much and was proud of her boys.......Jody
The last two days I was able to spend with my mother were important and priceless. She was fired up and feeling great on Friday, February 5th. We talked for two hours and had a great conversation. Saturday I was there at the end, and told her to join the beautiful dogs in her life that are up there waiting for her - Ahzy, Wattie, and Bandit. She is up there with my Grandmother and Grandfather smiling down at us all. Thanks Mom for being you - fierce, stubborn, independent, and strong. I know I got those traits from you. RIP. Go Twins!!!!!
John, Tim and Ed -
Mark and I are sorry to hear of Jeanne's passing. She was a remarkable lady with a great sense of humor. Jeanne and I would often talk over the fence as she would be tending to her impeccable garden - always trying to make it better than it was the year before. When she smiled, she smiled with her eyes - I will miss that.
Our heart goes out to all of you during this difficult time and know she is in a better place and smiling down at you all.

I am so very sorry for the loss of Jeanne. I worked with her when she would substitute at John Marshall. The kids all adored her and would get so excited when they walked into the classroom to see her sitting in there. Her sense of humor and quirky personality will definitely be missed.
Dear members of Jeanne's family,
Jeanne was an AWESOME lady to have in my classroom as a substitute. VERY positive, friendly and competent.
GREAT lady.. RIP.
Tim & John
