Jeanne Gloria (Gleberman) Cohn died peacefully on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the age of 94. She is survived by her children, Daya Singh Khalsa (Sat Nirmal Kaur), Janet Cohn (Steve Krantz) and Maggie Cohn (Dean Plummer), and her four adored granddaughters, Hari Simran, Leah, Abby, and Nora. Jeanne was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 69 years, Leonard Elias Cohn, and her brother, J. Harvey Gleberman.
Jeanne was born in 1923 in New York, NY to May and Samuel Gleberman. She was raised and educated in New York City, graduating from New York University with a degree in business. She later attended the University of Bridgeport, where she received her master’s degree in counseling. Jeanne and Leonard settled and raised their children in Stamford, CT, becoming part of a lifelong community of dear friends.
Jeanne had a wonderful, full life with Leonard, traveling around the world, attending concerts and theater, and entertaining. Jeanne was a gifted hostess and cook, who loved making beautiful parties for friends and family. She was a voracious reader, a passion that she passed on to all her children. Everyone who knew her admired her for the strength of her beliefs and her love for her family.
Jeanne’s last years were spent at Kimball Farms Lifecare Community in Lenox, MA.
A memorial service will take place later this year. Donations in her memory would be welcomed by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America at www.alzfdn.org. Special thanks to the staff at Kimball Farms Nursing Care Center for their kindness and compassion.
