    Jeanette Alhadeff Arogeti

    Hannula bat Yoseph and Rivka

    November 14, 1930 – May 6, 2023

    As Shabbat ended on May 6, 2023, Jeanette Arogeti left this world and went to heaven with grace, dignity, and peace. Her life was filled with much joy and little sadness. She lived her entire life with faith, grateful that G-d blessed her and her family.

    Born in Atlanta to Joe and Becky Alhadeff, she was a first generation American who was privileged to be the first of many in her family to

    attend and graduate from college. Together, she lived a wonderful life with her parents and her two sisters, Stella Firestone, and Rachiel Berger.

    She loved to travel, to cook, to dance, to spend quality time with family, to read and to provide care and comfort to those she loved. She always left an indelible impression on everyone she met because she was a caring person who always enjoyed listening and never needed to be the center of attention in a conversation. Jeanette lived her life with the lesson taught by her parents that you can learn more by listening than you can by talking. She also believed that giving her time and resources to her community was just as important as supporting her family.

    Even as age began to slow her down , Jeanette was happy knowing that she nurtured and cultivated a great family of descendants, She leaves behind her eight children and their spouses (Robert & Amy Arogeti, Joel & Beth Arogeti, Jane & Mitch Durham and Barbara & Larry Perlis) , fourteen grandchildren and their spouses (James Arogeti & Maddie Brady, Michelle & Ian Stribling, Carly & Ilan Reisman, Jonathan Arogeti , Liza Arogeti , Sarah Arogeti , Lee & Rachel Perlis, and Gabe, Sam & Levi Durham) and five great grandchildren (Micah & Maisie Arogeti, Evie Reisman, and Judah & Matthew Stribling)

    A lifetime member of Congregation Or Ve Shalom, she actively volunteered her time as a member of the Sisterhood, a regular attendee of religious services and instilled in her children the importance of a lifelong commitment to its existence.

    Jeanette was predeceased by her husband, Jimmy who passed away fifteen years ago, her parents, Jimmy’s parents, Jack and Regina Arogeti, and the beloved spouses of her husband and sister, Herman Steinman, Mike Levy, Leanora Levy, Raymond Arogeti, Joe B & Betty M Arogeti and Hugh Berger.

    In addition to her sisters, Jeanette is survived by Stanford Firestone, Leon and Sylvia Capouano, Emily Steinman and Renee Arogeti and their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

    Dear Robert, Joel, and the Arogeti family- So very sorry to hear of Mrs. Arogeti's passing. Aside from being around her over the many years of OVS carpooling, I got to know your Mom even better when we worked together at White's Wigs in the 70's.

We will all miss your Mom, may her memory be a blessing.
