Jean Robertson Broadway

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.

Primarily a mother who was always there for her husband and children, Jeanie worked outside the home as a banking officer, public school financial officer, accountant and professional organizer. She was known for her generous spirit and sweet disposition but also a tenacity to do a job well. Her hobbies included gardening, reading, collecting sea glass and playing with her grandson.

She is survived by her husband, William Broadway; daughter Caryn M. Davis, of Altamonte Springs, Fla.; son Christopher Broadway of Fairfax County, Va.; sister Virginia R. Patrick, of Hampstead; and one grandchild, Josiah Davis.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, November 14, 2009, at 11 a.m. at Wrightsville United Methodist Church with the Rev. Bob Bauman officiating.

Memorials may be made to the New Hanover County Arboretum Foundation, 6206 Oleander Dr., Wilmington, NC 28403.

    We are so sorry for the great loss of your wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. You all have definitely been in our prayers and will continue to be. What a blessing that you were all together as Jean went from a good place on earth to the best place in eternity. She wouldn't come back now if she could.

    We are all very fond of Jean and remember her so well despite the many years since we worked together. Jean made wonderful connections with students and staff at H-B Woodlawn.

    Bill - Thinking of you during this difficult time. Jeanie was such a delightful person with a good soul and heart of gold. I am so glad that I was able to spend some quality time with you and Jeanie at our 35th Furman class reunion two years ago. We had so much fun together. She will be missed. - Ed Wilkes
