Jeanie Felker

Jeanie Felker, a teacher of young children and a fierce advocate of their right to learn in their own way, died on Sept. 12. She is survived by her husband, Bill, and two daughters, Jeni, a child psychologist in Portland, Ore., and Neysa, an artist in Spoleto, Italy, two grandchildren, Max and Jack Thayer, and one sister, Janet Rugge, of Wildwood, Mo., as well as by other loving relatives from across the country.

A scholarship fund in Jeanie’s name has been established with the Antioch School, and donations to this fund should be sent to the Jeanie Felker Scholarship Fund, The Antioch School, Yellow Springs, Ohio 45387. The fund will help to support the education of children who otherwise would not be able to attend the Antioch School. An informal celebration of her life will be held at the Antioch School at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29. If the weather is pleasant, please bring a chair or blanket.

A full obituary will appear in the Sept. 20 issue of the News.
