Obituary

Jeannette Emily Frost, 105, formerly of Crestline, went to her final resting place on January 4, 2018, at Mill Creek Nursing and Rehabilitation in Galion where she has been a resident the past 8 years.

Jeannette was born July 18, 1912 in Crestline, Ohio, to Howard Franklin and Emma Katherine (Baldinger) Foltz, who was also a centenarian at age 100. She graduated from Crestline High School in 1930 and played clarinet in the marching band and orchestra. She was formerly employed in retail department stores and worked as an inspector for the State of Ohio, Division of Women and Minors from 1959 until her retirement in 1979. Jeannette was a member of Calvary United Church of Christ in Crestline, where she was active as Treasurer of Ruth Missionary Circle, Tabitha Society, member of the choir, and volunteered her time at many rummage sales, church luncheons, Crestline Community Christmas programs, and Prayers and Squares Quilt Ministry. Jeannette was a member of former Crestline Harmony Chapter #43 Order of Eastern Star and received her 50-year pin in 2011 from Bucyrus Chapter #3. She worked on the Board of Elections for several years, was a member of Public Employee Retirees, Inc., a former member of Business and Professional Women, volunteered at the Crestline Historical Society, and rode their float at the Harvest Festival.

Jeannette was honored as Citizen of the Year at Crestline K of C on March 17, 2007.

Jeannette married Coder Earl Frost on October 5, 1935. They enjoyed dancing, traveling to Chicago on their honeymoon and dancing to Big Band music. He preceded her in death on January 10, 1951.

Her positive attitude and feisty personality made Jeannette a pleasant and fun-loving friend and exceptional mother. Known for her kind words of encouragement, she would tell others to “take the bitter with the sweet, do the best you can, and not complain about it.” Jeannette was also a cancer survivor since 1995. She kept the faith until the end, building on the love of her church, friends, and family, and loved to sing along to hymns and old songs until her last breath. When asked before her 104th birthday how old she would be, Jeannette answered, “I’m a Spring chicken.”

Jeannette loved shopping, especially for clothes, and was a stylish dresser. She enjoyed socializing with friends, traveling, playing cards, and making afghans of woven yarn blocks. Jeannette was active in her church with Ruth Missionary Circle, Tabitha, Prayer Square and Quilt Ministry, helping make anise cookies and hard tack candy, wedding receptions, rummage sales and bazaars, and many other church activities. She also enjoyed watching OSU football and Cleveland Indians baseball games.
