Jeanie Dae Magnan, age 59, of Belding, passed away Sunday afternoon, July 10, 2022, at Spectrum Health – United Memorial Hospital in Greenville, Michigan. She was born on February 2, 1963, in Hopkins, Michigan, the youngest of nine children born to Vernal Nicholas and Wanda Elizabeth (Drake) Magnan, both of whom preceded her in death. Jeanie attended Byron Center High School with the Class of 1981. Following high school, she worked in several capacities however, she was a caregiver at heart and most of her life was devoted to in home health care. When she was nine years old, she met William J. Adams and they became lifelong friends. While they were in their teens, they knew they were soulmates, and their love has lasted a lifetime. Jeanie was an avid television watcher, and loved many shows including Zena Warrior Princess, Days of Our Lives, Supernatural, and one of her all-time favorites, Ancient Aliens on the History Channel. She also loved to get out of the house for an adventure on the motorcycle with Bill or just to make a trip to the store to buy a winning scratch-off ticket. She had a great love for her dogs, including her current dog, Mighty B, and Double D, who, sadly, passed away recently, and she was almost never found without wearing one of her trendsetting headbands or bandanas. Jeanie will truly be missed by all who knew her.
