E. Jeanne McTague, with 73 mostly good years to her everlasting credit, lost a long and spunky battle with leukemia on Holy Thursday, April 20, 2000. Born in Long Island City, N.Y., July 13, 1926, Jeanne was ''a New York girl''. In later years, when traveling and asked by others where she came from, invariably Jeanne replied ''New York City'', despite residence in Florida since 1953. During holiday time from Smith College, Jeanne was involved with Summer Stock in East Hampton where she appeared with the likes of Jean Pierre Aumont, Eva Marie Saint, and others. After graduating from Smith, Phi Beta Kappa, she started a five year career in retailing. By the time Jeanne left New York in 1953 with husband, Jim, to see what adventures Florida had to offer, she was B. Altman & Co.'s buyer of evening gowns. Residence in Coral Gables, Fla., lasted for 25 years, where Jeanne and Jim became parents and raised their five children. Jeanne was predeceased by son, Jim McTague Jr. in 1998. As a busy person and a caring person, Jeanne managed to put together some locally famous Coral Gables Auctions for charity while competently balancing the lively homefront.... not an easy task, but one handled very successfully. The auctions were classic, since Jeanne accumulated everything for them at home, there were times when the family wasn't sure just whose beds they were sleeping in. In 1977, the McTagues packed up and headed for Naples, where Jim's business had been centered for many years. There Jeanne jumped right in and during the intervening years before leaving us, Jeanne was very much involved with projects of Catholic Charities, Encore Shops of the David Lawrence Foundation, and as a volunteer for Hospice, among other things. Jeanne is survived by Jim, her husband and very best friend of 51 years; daughters, Jo Townsend, Suzy Goldman (Bob), Jeannie Manuri (Mike), and Mary McTague. Then there are eight Neapolitan grandchildren, Jennifer, Jackie, John, Matthew, Katie, Christine, Megan and J.P., of whom Jeanne was exceedingly proud. Jeanne was the definition of a fine person and will be sorely missed by her loving family and the many people from all walks of life who have benefited by her presence. Visitation will be from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 25th at Hodges Funeral Chapel in Naples. Funeral Mass will be said Wednesday, April 26th at 10:00 a.m. at St. William Church, Seagate Drive.
