Jeanne Katherynne was the daughter of Alva William Sovereign and Irma Estelle Burton.
My Mother’s brother Luther William, met Jeananne while serving as a paratrooper in the United States Army during World War II at Alliance AAF, Nebraska.
Jeanne Katherynne and Luther William Johns were married 6 August 1942 in Chadron, Dawes County, Nebraska.
To this union was born three children; two daughters and a son. I just learned late last night that one of these girls had recently passed away.
After the War, my Uncle was hired to work for the railroad. That job eventually took him to the Chicago area where he passed away in 1985.
In 1961, while training at Chanute AFB in Rantoul, IL I was able to visit with my Uncle at his home near Chicago.
I lasted visited with Aunt Jeanne shortly before her death in 2002. They both have been missed and have left a large gap in the lives of  family members and friends.
