Obituary for Jeanne Bressen Epstein

November 12, 2021
Newtown, Pennsylvania


Newtown, PA - Jeanne Bressen Epstein, 92, passed away on November 12, 2021 after a short illness. Born and raised in Philadelphia, she was married to Paul for nearly 52 years until his death in 2002, making their home in Elmont, NY, Maplewood, NJ, and finally Florham Park, NJ. Her lifelong passions were bridge, tennis, canoeing, cooking, travel, politics, and her family and many friends. She had fantastic independence, building a stone cabin in the forest in central Pennsylvania with her own hands (and the hands of many friends), going on a canoe expedition above the Arctic Circle with her older sister Mimi when they were in their 70s, and inspiring all who knew her to try new things. She is survived by her children Mark of Belmont, MA, Roy and wife Joanna also of Belmont, Glenn and wife Natalie of Upperville, VA and beloved grandchildren Jacob (and wife Yang), Martin, Allie (and husband Drew), and Sarah,and sister Mimi. There will be no public funeral but the family will celebrate her life on her birthday July 16th, 2022 in Belmont. Jeanne's lifelong love of the outdoors inspires her family to ask for donations to be sent in her name to the conservation charity of your choice.
