Jeanne Kathleen (Lorah) Scheneman passed away on Monday, September 7, 2020. She was married for 63 years to the late William A. Scheneman, who passed away on November 12, 2009.

Born in Reading she was the daughter of the late Lester Kinsey Lorah and Kathryn (Rothenberger) Lorah.

She graduated from Shillington High School in 1943, and studied the flute under John Fisher of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Her love of music and art flourished throughout her life, she was a private teacher of the flute and piccolo for over 22 years, as well as twice being the President of the Women's Committee of the Reading Symphony Orchestra. Her art appreciation showed itself with Jeanne's lifetime devotion of painting Early American Folk Art. She served lovingly on Episcopal Church Altar Guilds in Washington D.C., Bradenton, FL, and Reading, PA for over 40 years.

Jeanne is survived by her children: Rev. Mark A. Scheneman, husband of Dorothy, of Ephrata; John P. Scheneman, husband of Jill, of Lititz; and Kathleen S. Kreitz, wife of Atty. Robert R. Kreitz, of Spring Township; grandchildren: Stephen Scheneman and fiancee Sharon Burke and Kelly Scheneman all of Huntington Beach, Ca; Katherine (Scheneman) Whetstone, wife of Jeffrey, of East Greenville; Amy (Kreitz) Traffas, wife of Richard, of Spring Township; Elisabeth (Scheneman) Massa, wife of Daniel of Wilmington, De; Allison Kreitz, fiancee of Fred Scarpitti of Spring Township; and Peter Scheneman, husband of Mary of Annapolis Md; and six great-grandchildren.

Contributions in her memory may be made to Reading Musical Foundation, PO Box 14835, Reading, PA 19612 or St. Albans Episcopal Altar Guild, 2848 St. Albans Dr. Reading, Pa. 19608.

Jeanne was my flute teacher for many years in the 1980s. I well remember entering the house and climbing the stairs to her studio. When my schedule got challenging and I hadn’t found time to practice before my lesson, she would get out duets and we would sightread them together. She was a lovely person. My condolences to your family.

Please accept my condolences in the passing of your mother, Jeanne. We will be praying for peace and strength for the family during this time. I loved her and Bill so very much and consider them with fondness when I recall all the memories we had while Bill was giving me trumpet lessons all those years. God bless you all.
