Exline (Leland), Jeanne Louise Of Minneapolis, age 83, Died 11/14/ 2020 from the effects of Covid-19. She is survived by Jack, her adoring husband of 62 years; children Jan Bauer, John (Linda), and Joel (Michelle); her treasured grandchildren: Zach (Stephanie) Alex, Madeline (Sandra), Kelsey (Tim), Mara, Jack, Taylor, Ben; great-grand children: Mason, Bennett, Ruby; and her beloved brother James Leland. Preceded in Death by her Mother and Father, Walter and Beulah Leland. Jeanne's life calling was in guiding and encouraging others to reach their full potential, from her early beginnings as a career counselor with the Minneapolis public schools, with the amazing women of CHART to her last posting at the U of MN - St. Paul Campus, she used her incredible empathy and positivity to let others see their possibilities. Throughout, she volunteered in many organizations, churches, and charities, a whirling dervish of action and giving. Her fault, if any, was an inability to say no when someone needed help. This created a like-minded circle of dear friends who will miss her warmth and laughter. A memorial gathering will be held when safe to do so. Memorials to The Nature Conservancy or Twin Cities Public Television.
