Jeanette Ann Spaeth '89 Memorial Scholarship
Jeanette Ann Spaeth was a daughter, sister, aunt, true friend and a graduate of the class of 1989 from Nazareth Academy. Jeanette passed away at the age of 38 in July, 2010, after a 19 year brain illness. Although she was seriously ill from the time she graduated from high school, she never complained about her illness, but managed to shine her faith and love on all those she encountered. Jeanette always wanted to attend Nazareth Academy. She knew from an early age that Nazareth was a special place. Her happiest times were the times she spent at Nazareth Academy where she participated in the varsity softball team, varsity field hockey team and Community Service Corps. While in the Community Service Corps, she was instrumental in making NA aware of “Project Rainbow”, a program for helping unwed mothers in need. Jeanette’s parents, sisters, brother, family and friends have created the Jeanette Ann Spaeth Memorial Fund to ensure her legacy lives on and to assist in providing the opportunity to fulfill another incoming freshman’s dream to attend Nazareth Academy High School.
