Jeanna Mae Edie

January 28, 1954 — March 15, 2024

Zoarville

Jeanna Mae Edie, age 70, of Zoarville, died peacefully, Friday, March 15, 2024, following a period of declining health. 

Born in Union Hospital at Dover on January 28, 1954, Jeanna was a daughter of the late William and Elva Brown Tomblin.

She was a 1972 graduate of Tusky Valley High School and soon after married John Edie on March 17, 1973. Together the couple raised three children and shared in 46 years of marriage prior to his passing in 2019.

Jeanna served a handful of years as a Medical Biller with Ohio Billing and also spent a number of years as an independent tax preparer. However, Jeanna’s life revolved around her family. She loved attending the events and activities of her children and grandchildren and will long be remembered for her famous no-bake cookies and Chex Mix. In her free time, Jeanna enjoyed playing music, was an accomplished Accordion player, who also served many years as a member of the Ladies Auxiliary for the Mineral City American Legion, and enjoyed traveling. 

She will be missed by her children William (Kathy) Edie of New Philadelphia, Sean (Monica) Edie of Dover; and Shavonne (Casey) McMillan of Zoarville; her grandchildren, Jocelyn (Evan) Zimmerman, Ethan Edie, Aiden Edie, Hayden Ball, Theron Edie, Emerson Edie, Allegra McMillan, Violet McMillan, Cecilia McMillan, Shanna (Marc) O’Meara, Broc Wilson, and Cody Shanklin, and a brother, Jami Tomblin of North Carolina.

In addition to her parents and husband, Jeanna was preceded in death by a brother, William Tomblin. 

The family will greet guests on Monday, March 18, 2024, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM in the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia. Pastor Jim Borton will lead a service celebrating Jeanna’s life on Tuesday, March 19, 2024, at 10:30 AM in the funeral home’s chapel. Burial will follow in the Evergreen Burial Park at New Philadelphia.
