Obituary of Jeanne Berube

Jeanne F. Berube (Browne), beloved wife of Robert V. Berube, passed away peacefully on March 18, 2024, after a brief illness. At her bedside were her husband Robert, son John and daughter Beth along with Ellie, their cherished dog. 

Jeanne was married to Rob for 54 years, but their love story began when she met him at the age of two, as neighbors in Tewksbury, MA. Rob’s family moved to Westford, but they were destined to be together, reunited in 1966 and began dating. Four years later, in 1970, they were married during a Valentines Day snowstorm. Several years later they were blessed with Beth, and then John 9 years later. They raised their children in New Ipswich, NH, on their family farm, until they settled in Peterborough, NH in 1988. 

Jeanne was an attentive Mom, never missing one of John’s swim meets, lacrosse or football games, and spending summers at fairgrounds, across the state, while Beth showed her flock of sheepShe supported both Beth and John in 4-H and many other groups and clubs. In her 20 years as a 4-H leader, she attended countless fairs and other 4-H events. For a period of time, she served on the board of directors for the Hillsborough County Fair Association. She loved teaching arts and crafts, sewing, spinning & weaving, cooking, chorus and so much more. 

As an avid reader, she would often be found relaxing with a book in hand. She was constantly swapping books with friends and neighbors. 

After many years of working at Monadnock Community Hospital as a Medical Transcriptionist, Jeanne started a successful home-based medical transcription business to give her the flexibility to be home with her family. This also allowed her to volunteer with the Peterborough Fire Auxiliary, supporting Peterborough Fire & Rescue, a dept served by both her husband and son. She would often volunteer with other local organizations whenever she could. 

Their passion for travel and warm weather drew Jeanne and Rob to Florida. They became Snowbirds” in 2001 and permanent residents of Englewood, FL in 2011. It was during this time that she met many new lifelong friends and neighbors. In her retirement, she worked as a cashier at Publix, where she loved interacting with customers and co-workers alike. Jeanne was an active member, and former board member, at The Englewood Gardens Beach Club and loved watching the sunset there. 

Nothing delighted Jeanne more than planning a vacation for her family, whether it be camping by the ocean at Popham Beach, day trips to National Parks, or researching what activities to do on a cruise ship, but more than anything, she loved to go to Walt Disney World.  Jeanne loved Disney, all things Daisy Duck and her favorite movie, Monsters, Inc. She also loved having her family visit, but her happiest days were when her grandsons, Jackson and George, visited and they spent the day playing Uno and splashing around in Nonnie & Grampy’s pool, their Florida visits were always incredibly special to her. 

Jeanne was predeceased by her parents, John and Florence (DiBeneditto) Browne. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Robert V. Berube of Englewood, FL.
