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 and Amy Arogeti, Joel and Beth Arogeti, Jane and Mitch Durham and Barbara and Larry Perlis), 14 grandchildren and their spouses (James Arogeti and Maddie Brady, Michelle and Ian Stribling, Carly and Ilan Reisman, Jonathan Arogeti, Liza Arogeti, Sarah Arogeti, Lee and Rachel Perlis, and Gabe, Sam and Levi Durham) and five great-grandchildren (Micah and Maisie Arogeti, Evie Reisman, and Judah and Matthew Stribling).

A lifetime member of Congregation OrVe 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 15 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. and 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.
