Regina Renee Schreiber
NORTH CANAAN — Regina Renee Schreiber — “Jeannie” or “Miss Jean” — 54, of North Canaan, left this earth on Aug. 5, 2020.
Jeannie was born on July 23, 1966, in Bronx, N.Y. She is missed by her mother, Annette L. Roddy (Kutteles) and stepfather, Fenwick W. Roddy; her father, Richard J. Schreiber and stepmother Flora Schreiber; her sister, Denyce P. Lowell and brother-in-law, Russell I. Lowell; and her brother, Raymond Schreiber.
She was predeceased by her brother, Baby Boy Schreiber.
Jeannie also leaves behind seven nieces and nephews; three great-nephews; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. She had an everlasting love for her family and friends — she may have even loved them more than she loved the King, Elvis Presley!
Jeannie was kind-hearted, witty and a joy to be around. She loved to joke around, had the best comebacks, and enjoyed being around family — either drinking her tea, playing cards, or taking pictures of us all. She overcame struggles and challenges at an early age and will always be someone to admire. She was tragically and unfortunately taken from us too soon.
A Mass of Christian burial will be held Thursday, Sept. 3, at 10 a.m. in St. Martin of Tours Parish St. Joseph Church in North Canaan. Burial will follow in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.
Calling hours will be held Wednesday, Sept. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Newkirk-Palmer Funeral Home in North Canaan.
