Biography of Jeanne Gaston
I attended Women's Ohio Via de Cristo #64 in the fall of 2008, where I sat the the table of Priscilla. My husband and I attend Peace Lutheran Church in Gahanna when in Ohio and Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Port Charlotte when in Florida. Karl and I have been married 46 years. We have three children, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Karl and I spend time in Ohio (where the majority of our family is located), Florida (where Karl and I purchased a home two years ago), and Hawaii (where our daughter and one granddaughter live).
We have helped coordinate Ultreyas for the Central Ohio VdC community and I have been involved with many VdC weekends and two of the Clergy Experiences. Even though I have not held an office for our secretariat I have been involved since Karl has been the state Spiritual Director for Ohio Via de Cristo for the last several years.
Before retiring in February 2017, I was a Product Manager for the Treasury Management division of a regional bank and spent my entire career in the banking industry. In my spare time I enjoy incorporating a little humor with my puppets in children's sermons and my Rollos, as well as crafting, woodworking, and depending on where we are, playing pickleball, swimming and hiking.
I am looking forward to working with the NLS Board for the coming year.
