Quacker Factory Founder Jeanne Bice Dies

On Friday, less than two months after announcing that she had uterine cancer, Quacker Factory founder Jeanne Bice passed away. Jeanne first appeared on QVC 16 years ago, in 1995. Quacker Factory’s notice of her death says that Jeanne “loved QVC.  Everything about it.” And QVC–and its customers–loved her right back.

Dialing With Pencils reader Joan N. writes:

Oh, I am so sorry about Jeanne’s passing. I quacked quacked a lady in grocery store yesterday when I spotted her pants. I will always cherish the sweater she made in honor of my Shih Tzu dog. Now I’ve lost 2 friends. My thoughts and prayers are with Angel and the family. Joan Nutter

Quacker Factory suggest that donations in Jeanne’s memory be made to Feed the Children, Jeanne’s favorite charity.  You might want to do some research though before sending in your check.

Feed the Children is currently under criminal investigation.  The charity’s founder was fired in 2009 after after its board of directors discovered he had hidden microphones in three executives’ offices and has also been accused of taking bribes and hiding pornographic magazines at the charity.  Read more about Feed the Children.

    Jeanne started a movement of love all across this country and her legacy will live on. She was a sweet, witty, lovable woman with a heart of gold and I just wish I could stop crying! God bless her family and Angel.

    I beat that horrible cancer in 1989 and have been cancer free 21 yrs. now. My heart just goes out to her family, it’s such a Horrible, Mean disease.
    Please ladies have your well check up yearly, even though it’s is not fun, (none of us like that part of our exams) but we can stay on this Earth with our families as long as we can….It’s so hard for one to see our loved one die with cancer.
    God Bless you Jeanne and rest in Jesus Arms now!

    I just read about Jeanne Bice. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. She was an
    outstanding woman on QVC and I’m sure in her own life. She uplifted everyone that listened to her. She always had a smile and a good word to say about anything and anyone. She was lovely. I will miss seeing her on QVC, but will always remember the times I had listening to her on TV.
    May God Bless her family and friends.

    I watched Quacker Factory for many years and have lots of Jeanne’s clothes – but what I liked most was the love and encouragement she always gave her audience and her models and all who came in contact with her – I grieve for her suffering and I will miss her sweet smile – may the Lord strengthen and bring peace to Jeanne’s family, friends , associates and to all her “quacker ladies” God Bless all Joy
