She has touched the lives of many. Gloria Jean Vitayanuvatti, of Warrenton, passed away peacefully on May 12, 2021 at the age of 70. She was surrounded by the comfort of friends and family. Even though cancer took her life, it did not beat her. She did not express fear for herself, only the concern for others until the very last breath.
Gloria preferred to be called “Jeannie.” Her accomplishments throughout life were unmeasurable, and words alone cannot convey even a fraction of what she has done. Most recently, her most important contribution was to the dedication and caring of her parents and aunt. She had an unrelenting passion for helping others. Her service to adult education in PD 9. Her masterful work in the criminal justice system, helping those who have been forgotten and mistreated.
Her occupations were many. First she was a hairstylist. Then worked at Bell South, AT&T, Lucent Technologies, and Avaya. She had a leadership role in the Communications Workers of America. She was involved in Civil War reenactments. She loved gardening, history, genealogy and gemology.
Jeannie was preceded in death by her father, Edgar N. Pool, and her Nephew, Roy Pool Jr.
Jeannie is survived by her two sons, Michael and Tyler Vitayanuvatti; her daughter, Angie Overstreet; two sisters, Margaret Buraker and Joyce Wake; a brother, Roy Pool; her mother, Bette C. Pool; her grandchildren, Brandon, Kyle, Andrew, Alyssa, Austin, and Anya, and so many amazing cousins, nieces, and nephews.
There will be a graveside service at Bright View Cemetery 8265 Lunsford Road, Warrenton, on Saturday, May 22, at 2: p.m., followed by a gathering with friends and family.
