Obituary


Jeannie Vannoy Schramm, 80, formerly of West Liberty, W.Va. and Kemblesville, P.A., died March 10th 2022 at the Ivy Lodge healthcare Facility in Saugerties N.Y.
Jeannie was born on August 31, 1941 to R. Page and Louise Willis Vannoy, long time owners and operators of the" Old Brick Barn" dairy farm in Kemblesville, P.A.
She was predeceased by her husband, Robert Wolfgang Schramm and brothers, Dan Page Vannoy and R.Page Vannoy Jr.
Jeannie is survived by her daughter, Adriane Vannoy Schramm of Hudson, N.Y. ; her son Darian Vannoy Schramm of San Diego C.A.; daughter in law, Leslie Schramm; three grandchildren, Love Psychedelic Schramm Nevai, Wolfgang Schramm, and Julian Moon Schramm;sister in law, Sharon L. Moser of Martinsburg W.Va.; and several nieces and nephews.
Jeanne served as reference librarian for over 40 years at West Liberty University. She was a historical re-enactor of women who advocated the underdog, and enacted over 300 performances in 7 states ,of women who have raised the voice for the oppressed and forgotten.
Jeannie and her husband, Bob, refurbished an old school bus into the world's first " Women's History Museum on Wheels", and with their vast collections of historical items, toured the east coast inviting all to champion the great humanitarian work of women. This collection was made the very first acquisition of historical materials for the National Womens History Museum in Washington D.C. in 2008.
In 1963, Jeannie embarked on an almost year long exploration of Europe and the Middle East. She hitchhiked through 18 countries and three continents, blessed with relying solely on the kindness of strangers. 48 years later, she published her diaries of this adventure. For all that were lucky to know Jeannie, this insatiable curiosity to know and understand all walks of life and culture were the hallmark of her soul.
Jeannie loved trying new foods, learning new things, and taking long baths each night while reading her encyclopedias.
Jeannie's family will always remember her often advising to " Do the right thing, do the thing that needs to be done, and Hey,! Why be normal?"
The family, in lieu of flowers, requests that anyone reading this try and not be normal today.
