Obituary for Jean Elizabeth Hinneburg
Jean Elizabeth Hinneburg, 95, of Hepburnia, passed away peacefully, Friday July 1, 2022 at her residence.

She was born August 23, 1926 on the knob Farm near Grampian, the daughter of the late Clair N. and Hilda K. (Rishel) Wriglesworth. Upon her graduation from Clearfield High School in 1944, she worked as a solderer in the defense plant (Airplane-Marine) in Hyde through the duration of the war.

After attending the DuBois Business College, she worked briefly at the former Poe Motors in DuBois. She then began a 25+ year career with TWA as a ticket agent, working in Kansas City, Chicago, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, New York, and Philadelphia. It was in Philly, that she met her husband William Hinneburg and they married on April 20, 1968 at the Friends Meeting House in Grampian.

Throughout her years with TWA and after retiring, she traveled all over the U.S., as well as to many foreign countries. Upon retirement, she and Bill moved to Newport Richey area of Florida and their home quickly became a vacation destination for her northern family members. They proved to be excellent hosts and tour guides for everyone who visited. Jean and Bill spent most summers in Pennsylvania and in 2018, Jean moved back permanently to her little yellow house on the coroner on the Knob Farm near Grampian, PA.

Aunt Jean, as she was affectionately known by three generations of the family as well as many in the community, enjoyed hosting holiday and family picnics on her lawn, sitting and visiting on her front porch, singing, shopping, and sending greeting cards. While living in Florida, she was a member of St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church and was very active with a historical preservation group known as the Questors.

In Pennsylvania she was a member of the West Branch Meeting, Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Grampian and the Penn Grange.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband in 1984; four sisters and two brothers: Frances Pentz, Ella Bell, Madeline Miller, Catherine Swartzbach, Robert “Bob” Wriglesworth, and Joe Wriglesworth; a niece Donna McGary; a step son-in-law William “Bucky” Walters; and a step grandson William “Billy” Walters.

Surviving are two stepdaughters: Sherry Walters and her family of Farmville, VA and Pat Hinneburg of Carnation, WA; a sister-in-law Lois Wriglesworth of Grampian; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A “Celebration of Life” Memorial Services will be held at the Friends Meeting House * 415 First Street * Grampian, PA 16838, on Saturday August 13, 2022 at 11:00 AM with Mr. Clair Wriglesworth as Overseer. Interment will be in the Friends Cemetery in Grampian.
