In memory of
JEAN LOUISE BARTOO
BARTOO JEAN LOUISE (Haviland) BARTOO passed away peacefully in her sleep Friday evening at her son and daughter-in-law's home in Worthington, OH. Jean was the irrepressible daughter of the late Melba (nee Standley) Haviland and the late Nelson W. Haviland; enthusiastic kid sister of the late Nelson "Junnie" Haviland; warmhearted aunt of Ted, Tim, Holly Beth (Keegan), Sean, the late Seamus, and Brian Haviland; loving wife of the late Edward R. Bartoo; affectionate and keenly supportive mother of Bruce K. Bartoo and like-minded mother-in-law of fellow redhead Amelia Pepple. Born in Cleveland and raised in the West Park-Puritas neighborhood, Jean took tap dance and trumpet lessons, attended John Marshall High and Mount Union College where she joined the Delta Delta Delta sorority, formed lifelong friendships with the "Notorious Nine" and was the first woman to be President of the Student Senate. She also riveted B-29s during summer break. After a stint as stewardess for Penn Central Airlines, Jean became a librarian at NACA/NASA's Lewis Research Center where she met her aeronautical engineer husband-to-be Ed. After their son Bruce was born, Jean and Ed built their home in North Olmsted doing everything, except for digging the basement and plastering the walls, themselves. Jean began with North Olmsted Schools as 3rd grade teacher and then Principal at Chestnut Elementary, and earned her Master's Degree from Western Reserve. She then became the first Principal of Pine, then Spruce and the new Butternut Elementary Schools. After receiving her Doctorate in Education at Kent State, Jean became North Olmsted's Director of Pupil Services. She was instrumental in establishing the Sunrise School, the Horizons Education Center and co-founded the NOLEDG program for gifted students. Dr. Bartoo also served on the North Olmsted Community Council and a term as President of Ohio Association of Elementary School Principals. Transitioning into retirement, she was a trustee for the Clague Playhouse and was twice elected to the North Olmsted School Board. Jean and Ed toured the world, sometimes studying educational systems in other countries, visited all 50 states, dozens of countries and, if they'd been able to go ashore in Antarctica, all seven continents. With her broth Junnie and his wife Pat, they cared for her elderly parents, learning the joys of Florida winters on Anna Maria Island. An avid golfer almost to the end, Jean counted 3 holes-in-one among her achievements. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the North Olmsted City Schools Education Foundation, 27425 Butternut Ridge Rd., N. Olmsted, OH 44070-3154 or the charity of your choice. As she liked to say: "Put your money in education and travel -- no one can ever take those away from you."
