Jeanne Anton

November 6, 1924 — February 15, 2019

Jeanne Joseph Anton, a long-time Pittsburgh resident who grew up on Highland Avenue in Greensburg, died on Feb. 15. She was 94.

Jeanne lived at Weatherwood Manor in Greensburg for the past three years. She was born in Greensburg on Nov. 6, 1924. Her parents, James and Najeebie Joseph, emigrated from Syria. Jeanne, one of their 11 children, graduated from Greensburg High School in 1942.

Jeanne was predeceased by Dr. Carmen T. Anton of Pittsburgh, her husband of 24 years, a granddaughter, Elizabeth Ann Anton, and nine of her siblings. She is survived by her son, Frank Anton (Georgine) of Washington D.C., daughter Zana A. Varner (William) of West Yarmouth, MA, and brother Ronald Joseph of Greenburg. She is also survived by granddaughters Cari Jeanne, Sara Lee and Molly Ann Varner, Emily Grace and Margaret Teresa Anton, great granddaughter Magnolia Zana Zebrowski, great grandson Clarksdale William  Zebrowski, and 19 nieces and nephews.

Jeanne was known for her outgoing and pleasing personality, fashionable attire, featuring matching accessories, and thoughtful notes on each of the many cards she sent on all occasions. She worked after high school at Joseph’s Children’s Shop in Greensburg, and later as a volunteer at Jefferson Memorial Hospital in Pittsburgh. She was active for many years at St. Michael’s Orthodox Christian Church in Greensburg.
