Jeanne Marie was a graduate of Sacred Heart High School in Biloxi. She earned both a Bachelor and Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Mississippi where she was a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority. She went on to teach Nursing at Hinds Community College until she became a full-time mother to her three daughters who were her pride and joy. 

Jeanne Marie volunteered countless hours in support of our Catholic schools and attended many sports games while her daughters, nieces, and nephews attended Mercy Cross. She had a passion for capturing memories through her photography. Her dedication and unconditional love for her entire family was well known as was her generosity and ever-present smile. 

She is preceded in death by her parents, Frank P. Barhonovich, Jr. and Amelia Lechner Barhonovich; sister, Victoria “Vicki” Marie Barhonovich; and brother, Frank P. Barhonovich III.
