Copy of Jeanne Dwenger_0001Jeanne E. Dwenger, age 83 of Hamburg, Indiana, died Thursday, March 6, 2014 at her residence.  Born April 28, 1930 in Dearborn County Indiana, she is the daughter of Margaret (Nee:  Crusse) and Joseph Cristman.  She was preceded in death by her spouses Leo Benz January 22, 1985 and Don Dwenger March 22, 2001.  She was the owner and operator of Jeanne’s Mini Mart in Hamburg and a member of St. Anne’s Catholic Church.

Through the years, Jeanne was very active in many capacities at St. Anne’s Church.  She loved working at the store and loved when people would stop by, whether it was a customer or someone from town that would drop by to visit with her.  She loved planting and tending to her flowers.  She could often be found watching her favorite soap opera in the afternoon and game shows throughout different times of the day.  Jeanne loved to put puzzles together, do word searches and play solitaire.  She loved her family and truly enjoyed when they would all get together for family gatherings.  She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by daughters Deb Ostendorf of New Point, Indiana, Linda Flannery of Batesville, Indiana, Mary Curran of  West Harrison, Indiana, Janet Mancarrella of Lawrenceburg, Indiana; step-daughter Paula Duenne of St. Peter’s, Indiana; sons Steve Benz of Batesville, Indiana and Dave Benz of Versailles, Indiana; step-sons Bruce Dwenger of Hamburg, Indiana, Wayne Dwenger of Peppertown, Indiana, Brian Dwenger of Tennessee; sister Dellene Arnold of Cincinnati, Ohio; sixteen grandchildren, four step-grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, eight step-great-grandchildren.  In addition to her parents and spouses, she was preceded in death by her sisters Joyce Cook, Joann Hastings and brother Jerry Cristman.

Visitation is Monday, March 10th, from 9 – 11 a.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Batesville.  Funeral services follow at 11 a.m. at the funeral home, with Rev. Bill Ehalt officiating.  The burial will be in St. Louis Cemetery.  Memorials may be made to the Batesville Fire Department or Batesville E.M.S.-10.
