She was born November 24, 1957 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the daughter of Dr. Robert W. and Eileen Lohr.

Jeannine attended St. Joseph Catholic School and Port Huron High School where she was on the Thunderbirds Dance and Drill Team that performed at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany. She worked several years for the Padre Pio Institute in Ottawa, Canada. She graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in education.

While teaching in Grosse Pointe, Jeannine obtained her MAT in Language Arts and a BR endorsement in Reading. She became a Reading Specialist for Grosse Pointe Public Schools. She also taught Reading and English Composition at various Baker Colleges.

Jeannine was a wonderful teacher and enjoyed sharing her great love of reading with her students. She loved teaching and always spoke fondly of her students and colleagues.
