ANDOVER – Jeanette E. Cambria, 69, passed away Monday (October 25, 2021) in Cleveland, Ohio.
Born in Hornell to Donald and Elizabeth (Kibbler) Kent on April 14, 1952, Jeanette was raised in Andover with her brother Tom Kent on the locally famous Kent Farms.
Jeanette is dearly loved and deeply missed by her husband, David S. Cambria; her three children, Amanda McMahan, Mason Searle, Kasandra Hajde; her two stepchildren, Kristin Jones and Chad Cambria; her eleven grandchildren, Morgan, Benjamin, Reagan, Landon, Liberty, Lilly, Ethan, Edwin, Olivia, Logan, and Lily; her brother Tom Kent and Kathleen (Gavin) Kent; her nephews Ed Kent and Joe Kent; the father of her children, Ralph C. Searle; and her dear dogs, Chloe, Kylie, and Trina.
In high school Jeanette was a majorette and on the track team. She is a graduate of Andover High School and Alfred State College where she obtained her RN degree in nursing.
She adored her parents. Her dad was her hero even as a teenager, and when her mother’s health was failing, she called every day without fail just to tell her she loved her.
While living in various places, she spent most of her remaining decades in northeast Ohio – finally residing in Macedonia, Ohio. She served as a nurse, caring for people throughout her life. She was known for her great sense of humor, tender heart, and her determined and unwavering spirit. She was a stay-at-home mom who cherished raising her children. Her favorite way to relax was to get away to Keuka Lake, or simply enjoy her family, friends, and fur babies. Jeanette was a Christian and raised her children to love the Lord.
Friends may call on Saturday, October 30 from 12 – 2 p.m. at Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Andover. The funeral service will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home immediately following the visitation with Pastor Lenny Fuller of the United Methodist Church of Hornell officiating.
