Marjorie Jeanne Toohey, always called Jeanne, age 95 and a long-time resident of Mt. Washington, passed away peacefully on September 28, 2017. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 24, 1922, Jeanne was the daughter of the late William and Anastasia (Klonne) Toohey. She was preceded in death by her sister, Martha (Herschede) Roelvink, brothers William and Robert Toohey, and nephew Thomas Toohey.

Jeanne spent her entire career working for Pogue's Department store, beginning in the early-1940s. She rose rapidly in the firm during the war and was one of the first female business executives in Cincinnati. She was a faithful Roman Catholic and a long-time member of Guardian Angels Church.
