RWC Member Spotlight: Jeanne Burkeson
Meet Jeanne Burkeson - Co-founder, Riverview Womans Club
How was the Riverview Woman’s Club Started?
The journey began back in 2012 when The Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce led me to Donna Lee Fore, a member of the community who like me, saw the need and opportunity to start a Riverview Woman’s Club. With our vision in sync, together we moved forward to start the club that April followed by the formation of the RWC Foundation.
What have been the highlights of being a member of the Riverview Woman’s Club?
I am grateful and appreciative of the close friendships I’ve made, especially with board members and committees. Although our fund raisers involve lots of work, the events have all been fun and entertaining. For me, the most rewarding part of membership has been the selection process and joy awarding scholarships to the most promising local high school seniors.

Not too long ago, Joe and I celebrated 35 years of marriage. A most memorable anniversary celebration was taking a transatlantic cruise to Barcelona, Spain. I’m most happy to share stories of that wonderful experience--just ask! That trip ranks right up there with our honeymoon in Greece.
