January 30, 1938 - August 30, 2020
Jeanne Helen Hammett Myers passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 30th, 2020 at the Hospice of Palm Beach County. Born on January 30, 1938 in Boston, MA to Walter Eugene and Eleanor Hammett, Jeanne grew up with her parents in Nesconsett, New York on Long Island. She has lived in West Palm Beach since 1978 with her beloved partner Barry Shatunoff who passed away in 2014. Jeanne and Barry were owners for many years of the successful flight school and airplane charter business, Chandelle Aviation, at West Palm Beach Airport. Jeanne retired from the airplane business in 2019. Jeanne enjoyed a life well-lived. She was welcoming, loving, and had many varied interests including gardening and pets, working on her home, visiting with her family and friends. More could be said, but the remainder are the wonderful memories we have of Jeanne-- of family time spent together, of her calm and caring nature, of her thoughtfulness and grace, of her curiosity, and most importantly the love for her family. She packed a lot of energy, strength, and care into her diminutive stature which she dutifully flew up north to visit children and grandchildren every Christmas and other important family events. In recent years, she would unfailingly log into college graduations and baby showers online when she could not attend personally. Jeanne is survived by her three children, Christopher William from Essex, CT; Deborah Elizabeth McCauley from Garden City, NY; and Barbara Jeanne Sheedy from Royal Palm Beach, FL. Also surviving are grandchildren Heather, Abagael, Christopher, Paul and Patrick; and great granddaughter Evelyn Margaret. In lieu of flowers, please send considerations to your local pet shelter or Veteran’s Organization.
