Funeral Services for Jeannene Reninger, age 90, of Merritt Island, Florida and formerly of Chambers will be at 11:00 am Saturday, July 25, 2020 at Memorial Baptist Church in Chambers with burial to follow in the Chambers Cemetery. Rev. Joe Bockerman will officiate. Jeannene passed away on Saturday, July 11, 2020 (her 90th birthday) in Merritt Island, Florida. Memorials may be directed to the family for future designation. Biglin's Mortuary in O'Neill is in charge of local arrangements.

Jeannene Georga Porter was born in Chambers Nebraska on July 11th of 1930, the fifth child of Frank and Francis (Snyder) Porter. Jeannene graduated from Chambers High School in 1948, where she is remembered for being on the girls' basketball team. When her children were young, it was common for the whole family to engage in a little basketball on the family driveway after dinner in the summer.

She married Normand Reninger in May of 1950 in Nebraska City, Nebraska. She had eloped with Pete Reninger much to her parents' chagrin, at least at that moment. However, all was well, Jeannene and family returned every year to Chambers to visit with parents and relatives. The date was typically the Fourth of July and there were always family barbecues and of course the fireworks show at the County Fairgrounds just outside of town.

Jeannene and Pete did a little time in Florida and then California and eventually ended up in Columbus Ohio where the children were born.

Jeannene was an accomplished homemaker giving birth to six children between 1952 and 1963 in Columbus Ohio. She was famous for her cooking and love of family. We were always impressed by her willingness to go along with our dad’s ideas. Whether it was bicycle riding on islands in the great lakes to sailing the waters of the Bahamas. She would even fish with him when the occasion arose.

Jeannene was always a faithfully follower of Jesus Christ and right up to the very end attended church weekly. She was also generous with her tithes to both the local church and Chambers Baptist.

Jeannene is survived by her six children, Jerry (Linda) Reninger of Canaveral Grove, Florida; Wanda (Bill) Hazelett of Merritt Island, Florida; Kitty Evans of Merritt Island, Florida; Sandy (Jeff) Chandler of Springboro, Ohio; Steve (Meredith) Reninger of Rockledge, Florida; Janet (Donnie) Jackson of Merritt Island, Florida; nineteen grandchildren; and eleven great grandchildren. Jeannene is also survived by three sisters, RuthAnn Clemens of O'Neill, Nebraska; Eleanor Zimmer of Chambers, Nebraska; and Deanna Bellin of Clairmont, Florida.

Jeannene was preceded in death by her parents, siblings; Wanda, Evelyn, Marian, Duane, and late husband, Pete Reninger.
