The daughter of Steve & Pearle Dubovich, she was a 1964 graduate of Greenway High School in Coleraine. Jeani loved to cook, and was very gourmet in her approach.

She had a skill for drawing, and left her family with some beautiful keepsakes. Jeani was a member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and was president from 1974 to 1975. Jeani had intense love for her family and dedicated her life to raising her kids. She exemplified all of the great qualities of being mom and wife.
