She was born on October 26, 1929, in Chester, PA, daughter of the late Peter and Despina Pahides, immigrants from Greece. Jeanne grew up in Marcus Hook, Pa, and graduated from Ridley Park High School in 1947. She worked for several companies in the Philadelphia area, including Western Union and the Fisher Tank Company.

Jeanne met Aristides “Steve” Stamus of Easton, PA, and they were married in 1953. They lived in Kansas City, KS, for a few years before moving to Madison Heights, MI in 1957, where they built their family over the next 30 years. Jeanne was the quintessential 60s and 70s supermom, volunteering for the Brownies, Cub Scouts, at the local elementary school, and for various church groups. In 1987, Jeanne and Steve moved to Rehoboth Beach after Steve retired from a career at General Motors. They spent their time together enjoying their retirement, and Jeanne especially enjoyed family gatherings, attending church, and time with her children and granddaughters.
