Jeanne was a devoted member of First Baptist Church of Jackson for over 50 years, faithfully serving as a Bible study leader and women’s leader. She worked for several years as a social services counselor at Villa and later as an addiction counselor at Blue Walters Treatment Center at East.
Jeanne is survived by her husband of 58 years, Henry Rogillio; a daughter, Cindy Rogillio; son, Steve Rogillio, and daughter-in-law, Kerri, all of Jackson.
She is also survived by her sister, Gail Mattson and brother-in-law, Vic, of Santa Rosa, CA; 3 grandchildren, Lindsay, Laura and Mason Rogillio; a great grandson, Nolan Mitchell; and former daughter-in-law, Donna Heaton.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Clifford and Mary Nelms; a sister, Pat Alford, and brother-in-law, Jesse Alford.
The family would like to thank the staff at Hospice of Baton Rouge -- in particular our primary hospice nurse, Charmaine -- for the excellent care and encouragement they provided for the entire family. We would also like to acknowledge our deep appreciation for Jeanne’s faithful sitters: Mildred, Martie, Rosemary, Rhonda, Bernadine, Sadie and Joyce.
