Again, and much to soon, the CIA, U-2, NASA, and Roadrunner families have lost
another lovely member. Like all the Roadrunner wives, Jeanine accompanied and supported her husband, Marty through the Korean War, the silent years of secrecy while he flew the U-2 spyplane for the CIA, and later when Marty retired from the Air Force as a Colonel to assume top executive positions with NASA at Dryden and Ames. Jeanine is survived by her husband: Marty, two sons: Marty and Eric, two daughters: Kristin and Robin, 5 grandchildren: Eric, Brandon, Samantha, Joshua, and Natasha.
A memorial will be held for Jeanine Sunday Oct 8th, 1100 AM at the Spangler Mortuary 399 So. San Antonio Rd, Los Altos , CA 94022. The Mortuary is located just off of Foothill Expressway, about 2 small blocks down on the right.
