Jeanne Wexler


Wexler, Jeanne, 94, passed away on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at Evergreen House Health Center, East Providence. She was the beloved wife of the late Joseph Wexler. Born in Brooklyn, NY, a daughter of the late Albert and Ida (Spivack) Resnick, she had lived in Cranston for 66 years, previously living in Providence.  Jeanne was a Dress Designer’s Assistant in Manhattan, later becoming a teacher’s aide for the Cranston School system.  She was a member of the former Congregation Beth Torah and Temple Am David, former President of the Pioneer Women and was an active member of Compassionate Friends.  Jeanne was known for her great sense of humor, and for retaining a keen mind until the very end. One of her last utterances was to inquire if the current Jeopardy champion was maintaining her long winning streak. Another was reminiscing about the famed “Bosco” death scene in Seinfeld. We suspect she hoped that would be her last word too.

Devoted mother of Marilyn Wexler (Steven Kingsbury) of Marblehead, MA, David Wexler (Lucia Gonzalez, Ph. D.) of Napa, CA, Philip Wexler of Cranston and the late Todd Wexler.  Dear sister of Sylvia Rapp (late David Rapp) of Palo Alto, CA.  Loving grandmother of Adam Kingsbury (Kimberly Bier) of Media, Pa, and Ian Kingsbury, Ph. D. (Arielle) of Marblehead, Ma.  Cherished great grandmother of Aliyah Kingsbury of Marblehead, Ma.

Funeral services and Shiva will be private.

Donations in memory of Jeanne Wexler can be made payable to the Todd Wexler Memorial Fund c/o Massachusetts General Hospital, Development Office, 125 Nashua Street, Suite 540, Boston, MA 02114 or online at .
