Jeanine Rowe

November 3, 1960 – December 31, 2017

Jeanine Hudgins Rowe, resident of Houston, Texas, passed away Sunday, December 31, 2017 at the Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was 57. Arrangements are under the direction of Trout Funeral Home & Crematory in Ponca City, Oklahoma.

She was born November 3, 1960, in New Orleans, Louisiana and raised by Gutman Cranow and Patsy Cotton Cranow. Most of her young life was spent growing up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Her educational interests included business and marketing studies at Louisiana State University. Starting in 1988 Jeanine successfully developed and managed many business relations’ and friend’s interests with her PR company, Bankston & Associates.

Later, following graduation from the Cordon Bleu Cooking Academy in Austin, Texas, Jeanine spent several years of her adult life pursuing her passion for exquisite food preparation and customer service in the food industry. After living in Austin, Texas for the last 27 years, Jeanine recently married and relocated with her husband, Patrick Eugene Rowe to Houston, Texas. Jeanine and Patrick were married on December 2, 2017.

Jeanine was a proud mother; she is survived by her son David Daniel Hudgins of Austin, Texas and her daughter Juditha Mary Elisabeth Hudgins of Allen, Texas and also a son, Jeffery Jason Young of St. Gabriel, Louisiana. She is survived by Jason’s two children, her grandchildren, Kelsey and Gunner Young of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and one granddaughter in Austin, TX, whom she loved very much, Bella Grace Hudgins. And she is survived by her brother Kenneth Cranow of Denham Springs, Louisiana. She is also survived by her loving husband, Patrick Eugene Rowe of Houston, Texas.

Jeanine was a sincerely warm and compassionate person. She always had a smile on her face and, in turn, was putting smiles on others’ faces. Her heart was pure and kind; she was always spreading love to others and would “give you the shirt off her back”. She will be deeply missed.
