Jeannine Ann (Stewart) Hartman, 93, formerly of Addison County


BLUFFTON, Ohio — Our beloved mother, Jeannine Ann (Stewart) Hartman, 93, of Bluffton passed peacefully on Sept. 16, 2022, at Mennonite Memorial Home in Bluffton, Ohio.

Mom was born April 30, 1929, in a farmhouse outside Bluffton, Ohio to the late Madison Stewart and Mary Kidd Stewart.

On Aug. 29, 1946, she eloped with “the best-looking man she’d ever seen,” Floyd Hartman, who preceded her in death.

She was a devoted mother of seven who affectionately called her “Wonder Woman.”

She was a hard worker whether it be on a tractor, working in the garden on their farm, at Triplett in Bluffton, or serving as a librarian at Bristol Elementary and Mount Abraham High Schools in Bristol, Vermont.

Her favorite sayings were “Look it up!” and “Keep Looking Up!” She loved good quotes and enjoyed sharing them at Maple Crest.

Mom’s love for sewing included: wedding gowns, flannel shirts, and countless precious quilts for family and people she never met.

Survivors include four daughters, Cheryl (Cliff) Eastman of Findlay, Ohio; Janice von Stein of Mt. Horeb, Wis.; Jeanette Brush of Salisbury, Vt.; Carol (Kris) Roscoe of Bristol, Vt.; and one son, Steven (Sherraine) Hartman of Ball Ground, Ga.; eight grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by two sons, Stanley Hartman and Michael Hartman; a grandson, Scott Roscoe; a son-in-law, Fletcher Brush; and two brothers, Darrell Stewart and Wendell Stewart.

Services were held at 11 a.m., Monday, Sept. 19, at Chiles-Laman Funeral and Cremation Services, Bluffton. Visitation was from 10 a.m. until the time of the service at the funeral home. Pastor Donald Clinger officiated. Burial took place at Thompson Cemetery, Bluffton, following the service.

Memorial contributions may be made to either: Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio, 410 W. Elm Street, Bluffton, OH 45817, or United Church of Lincoln, 23 Quaker St., Lincoln, VT 05443.

Our family extends our deepest gratitude to Mennonite Home Communities of Ohio and all those who have loved and supported her throughout the years.
