Jeannine B. Browning, a devoted wife and friend of the UF College of Pharmacy, passed away April 23. She and her loving husband of 67 years, George, ’53, have graciously supported the college to advance clinical innovative care and community business and entrepreneurialism. Additionally, they contributed to the construction of the Health Professions, Nursing and Pharmacy Building.
Jeannine and George settled and raised their four children in Melbourne, Florida. They were very active in their church, First United Methodist, where she served as a youth counselor and taught Sunday school. Jeannine was an outstanding cook and food was one way she showed her love to family and friends. She wrote several cookbooks that were sold worldwide. She also stayed true to her family roots and actively managed her family’s cattle ranch in Webster, Florida. A huge fan of the Florida Gators, she enjoyed following the athletic teams, especially football and basketball. In addition to her husband, Jeannine is survived by four children, eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
