YOUNGSTOWN — Mrs. Jeane Carol Colyar, 55, entered into eternal rest, Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

She was born April 2, 1968, in Youngstown. Jeane was loved and raised by her wonderful parents, Lonnie Arnold Sr. and Leotha Ash Arnold. She was educated in the Catholic parochial school system, graduating from Cardinal Mooney High School class of 1986. Jeane pursued her calling by completing her nursing degree at St. Elizabeth Nursing School, graduating in 1990. Over the course of her career, she touched countless lives and made a profound impact on her patients and colleagues.

She was always willing to go above and beyond to provide compassionate care, even in the face of difficult circumstances.

Throughout her 28 years at St. Elizabeth / Mercy Health, she worked in various departments, and in management her last several years. She was highly respected by her colleagues and was known for her exceptional clinical skills.

Outside of work, Jeane attended Christ Centered Church and loved listening to music, being an incredible makeup artist and interior designer. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.

She leaves to cherish her memory and continue her legacy, her husband of 30 years, James L. Colyar Jr.; her loving daughters, Jade Alysse Colyar and Yadira L. Colyar; four grandchildren; two sisters, Wanda (James) Maske of Charlotte, N.C. and Carolyn Arnold of Las Vegas, Nev.; one brother, Lonnie Arnold Jr. of New York; one special nephew, Alex Arnold of California; and a host of loving family and amazingly special friends.
