It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Jeanne E. (Hokanson) Hadley , 92, of Latrobe. Jeanne died Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at home, in the company of all six of her children. She was born December 04, 1927, in Bradford, the first daughter of the late Kenneth and Maybelle Iddings Hokanson.  Jeanne attended Grove City College where she was a member of the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. In 1948 Jeanne wedded Jack, the love of her life, with whom she celebrated 63 years of marriage before his passing. Together they raised six children, migrating from Bradford, PA through the North Hills of Pittsburgh, settling in Latrobe, where they lived for over 40 years.  Jeanne lived a full life. She was thoughtful, graceful, inquisitive, artistic, and creative, exhibiting these qualities in many ways throughout her life. Her sense of humor was legendary.   She was our compass in life, our True North. Her spirituality and faith encouraged and reassured all of us. Unsurprisingly, she joined the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites in Latrobe in 1983. She professed her vows in 1986, as Elizabeth Jeanne of the Ascension, devoted to praying for the priesthood and any special intentions brought to the Carmelites.  She loved her family fiercely. Jeanne...Mom... Nonny... filled our lives with cherished memories and our hearts with a legacy of love. We love her back fiercely. She will be missed so very much.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Jack L. Hadley in 2011; a grandson, Andrew Ross; and two sisters, Donna Vernon and Shirley Fitzgerald.  She is survived by her six children, Linda Schoenfeldt (Rob) of Troy, MI, Tom Hadley (Deborah) of Hugo, OK, Ken Hadley (Susan) of McConnellsburg, Susan Ross (Charles) of Latrobe, Carol Hadley of Latrobe, Judy Shaffer of Somerset; fourteen grandchildren; eighteen great grandchildren; sister, Ginger Siracuse (Vince) of Middletown, NY; and numerous nieces and nephews.  A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday November 14, 2020 in the Mary, Mother of Mercy Mausoleum at St. Vincent, followed by entombment.  Keeping with CDC guidelines, those attending the service are required to wear face masks. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Carmelite Monastery 5206 Center Dr.,Latrobe, PA  15650.  Jeanne’s family has entrusted her care to the Clement L.
