In Memory Of

Mrs. Jeannette
McGlynn Sanger

Born on March 15, 1919 in Brooklyn, NY, Jeannette McGlynn Sanger died peacefully on April 19, 2020 in Vero Beach, FL.  

Daughter of Henry and Augusta Mayer, Jeannette grew up in Queens Village, NY.  After graduating from The Scudder School in New York, she worked at Manufacturers Hanover Trust Company where she met her husband, Frederick Harward McGlynn.  Fred and Jeannette were married in 1941 and later moved to Garden City, NY, where they raised their children, Ronald and Nancy.

As a longtime member of Cherry Valley Club, Jeannette enjoyed golfing, socializing, bowling, and playing bridge.  She also enjoyed traveling and did extensive volunteer work.  She served as President of the Nassau Hospital auxiliary (now NYU Winthrop Hospital).  

Jeannette and Fred retired to Stuart, FL in 1975.  Several years after Fred’s death in 1978, Jeannette married Joseph Prentice Sanger.  Prent brought a loving family with him, who remained fiercely devoted to Jeannette for the rest of her life.

More than anything, Jeannette loved her family.  She so enjoyed our holiday gatherings and other times when we could all be together, particularly as she got older.  

Jeannette was predeceased by her younger brother, Wallace, her first husband, Frederick, and her second husband, Prentice.  She is survived by her son, Ron McGlynn, daughter-in-law Connie McGlynn, daughter, Nancy McGlynn, grandsons Peter McGlynn (Amy) and Scott McGlynn (Alexis), and seven great grandchildren.  Jeannette is also survived by her stepchildren, Sheldon, Susie, Joe and Margo Sanger.  

A private interment will be held at Pinelawn Memorial Park in Farmingdale, NY.
