Leola's Story

Text size

For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8: 38, 39).
Jeanette Pinter, 88, of Beckley, WV, went to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on June 27 at Bowers Hospice House following a long illness.
Born April 2, 1929, in Asheville, NC, Jeanette was the daughter of the late Walter R. and Georgia McMinn Wagoner. She was a 1947 graduate of Biltmore High School, Asheville, NC, and a 1952 graduate of Bob Jones University, Greenville, SC. She and her husband, Dr. Joseph Kalman Pinter, completed 40 years of service at Appalachian Bible College in 1997. She served most of her tenure as secretary (or Administrative Assistant) to five successive Academic Deans. She was active in the college Ladies Auxiliary. For many years she enjoyed working with children in Beginners Church at Prosperity Fundamental Baptist Church. In later years she especially appreciated the seniors fellowship at Beckley Regular Baptist Church where she was a member.
Left to cherish her memory are Joseph, husband of 65 years, sons Joel of Beckley, and Jon (Jane) of Bucyrus, OH; eight grandchildren: Amanda (Matthew) Manahan, Aaron (Kristen) Pinter, Emily (Logan) McElhatten, Elizabeth (Christopher) Nye, along with Andrew, Adam, Isaac and Seth Pinter; and five great-grandchildren: Janessa, Kalman, and Salina Manahan, and Levi and Arya McElhatten.
