Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Jeanne by adding your memories and photos.

Jeanne Marie Kristoff, 52, born in Amherst, Ohio, passed away September 9th, 2015, just weeks after being diagnosed with cancer.
Jeanne was devoted to her family and loved nothing better than getting everyone together at her house to play games, watch movies, swim in the pool, or socialize. Her hobbies included quilting, gardening, and reading and she enjoyed all things involving history. She adored her 3 dogs Sheba, Buddy and Buster, and her cat Sheila. Jeanne was always giving of her time and herself to anyone she knew, and even to strangers. She touched the hearts of countless people and will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
Jeanne was a key member of the Synchrony Financial team, successfully leading and managing billion dollar deals. As a subject matter expert and business partner, Jeanne led countless client conversions, transfers, new startups, and major cross functional initiatives. The legal team would not sign off without her approval. She was best known across multiple business teams as OSU Jeanne, as she started every conference call with the Ohio State fight song because her husband went to OSU, even though she attended Wittenberg University.
She is survived by her husband Michael Kristoff, her mother Georgetta Palmer, her Grandmother Mary Salcian, sisters Sherri Freeland (Paul), Mary Kay Malensek (Terry), Kelly Hostettler (Brian); brother Mike Palmer; sisters-in-law Karen Neil, Letty Lundholm (Kevin), Patty Kristoff, Mary Ranalli (Mike); brother-in-law John Kristoff Jr; 8 nephews, 10 nieces, 7 grand-nephews, 6 grand-nieces.
Memorial service to be held on Saturday, September 12th at 2pm at: Flanner & Buchanan-Carmel, 325 E. Carmel Dr., Carmel, IN 46032. Family and friends are welcome to gather at the home before and after the service.
