Jeannine B. Engleman, age 91, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, in Boerne. She was born Jan. 30, 1929, in Houston to Roy W. and Dorothy (Pieters) Butler. She was a graduate of Jefferson High School in San Antonio. She married the love of her life, James E. Engleman Jr. on Aug. 31, 1946. They were married for 51 years until his death in 1997.

Together they worked hard and built a wonderful life for their small family. They enjoyed traveling together and spending time on their ranch in Vanderpool. She was a member of several clubs and devoted time volunteering at hospitals. For over 30 years she worked side by side with her husband in their business, Bear Oil Company in San Antonio, until they decided to retire.

Jeannine was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She most enjoyed spending time with her granddaughter Kelly and her family, always referring to them as the Light of Her Life! Jeannine also cherished her close relationship with Kelly’s mother, Chrissy Treiber Webbles. She will always be knowingly loved as our “Mama Hi Hi”

Jeannine was preceded in death by her husband James E. Engleman Jr. and her son Gary E. Engleman. She is survived by her granddaughter Kelly Gene Duennenberg and husband Clinton, and her great-grandchildren Ashley Gene Duennenberg and Cooper Lee Duennenberg.

The family would like to send their most gracious and loving thanks to the nurses and staff at Alamo Hospice as well as to the nursing staff at Kendall House at Menger Springs, Boerne.
