Jeanne Rapoport (Mendelsohn) Copeland

December 12, 1923 ~ April 24, 2022 (age 98)


Jeanne Rapoport Copeland (née Mendelsohn), of Naples, FL, formerly of Baltimore, MD, passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 24, 2022, at the age of 98. She is survived by her loving daughters, Bonnie (Rick) Marshall, Susan (Alan) Levy and Ellen (Jamie) Wilen; beloved grandchildren, Andrew (Alyssa) Wilen, Casey Wilen, Jake Marshall and Dr. Saryn Levy (Ben Witten); great grandchildren, Aubrey and Arlo Wilen and Miles Witten; and devoted step children, Marsha (Dick) Manekin and Dr. Jack (Lisa) Copeland. She was predeceased by her loving husbands, Dr. Leonard Rapoport and Dr. Herbert Copeland.

At 98 years young, Jeanne remained the life of the party, enjoying ballroom dancing until her last days. On her 98th Birthday in December, she was featured dancing the waltz and foxtrot on Wink News. She shared with them her secret to longevity being an egg in the morning and a beer every night. Jeanne was a beautiful woman who was witty, irreverent and feisty. Her engaging smile would light up any room. Colorful and capable with an indomitable spirit, she was a positive force in the lives of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The family will be conducting a private service. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be sent to the charity of your choice.
