Jean Robertson Broadway, 60, died November 11, 2009, at her home in Wilmington in the arms of her family.
Born in Washington, D.C., on February 6, 1949, Jeanie graduated from Yorktown High School in Arlington, Va., and received undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. She later became a certified public accountant.
