BAINBRIDGE, GA - Jeanine F. Halada, 62, of Bainbridge, GA, passed away Friday, March 24, 2017 in Dothan, AL surrounded by her loving family. Born in Oregon, OH on June 23, 1954, she was the daughter of the late Casper and Floester Halada.
A Rossford class of ’72 graduate, she went on to receive her baccalaureate degree in English education from Florida State University in 1994. She furthered her education at FSU, earning her Master’s degree in 1998. She resided in Bainbridge, GA where she taught English, both at Bainbridge High School and Bainbridge State College, for nearly 20 years. One of her many passions included leading the debate team at Bainbridge High School as well as the Literary and Quiz Bowl Teams.
