Jean Rose London Eisenbach, 91, passed away on September 12, 2021, in Baton Rouge. A native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, she attended the University of Alabama and Sophie Newcomb College from 1948 to 1952. Jean was a member of Congregation B'nai Israel and a resident of Baton Rouge for more than 60 years. She was a homemaker, wife, and mother, as well as a volunteer at the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention hotline for a number of years. She was also one of the founders of the Baton Rouge Association for Gifted and Talented Students. Jean was an avid bridge player and member of a weekly bridge game for more than 40 years. After moving to Assisted Living at St. James Place three years ago, she not only made a whole new group of friends but also saw to it that a regular blackjack game was established. She was a warm and engaging person who never met a stranger and always made others feel welcome and appreciated. Called Mimi by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she had special sayings (her grandchildren termed them "Mimi-isms") that delighted her family and friends. She touched so many lives with her warmth and was a wonderful role model of how to love, parent, and treat others. All who knew her will treasure those memories. A devoted and loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Ruth Cramer London and Simon London, brother Alvin Newman London, and brother-in-law Richard Scherzer; and survived by: her husband, Robert Leonard Eisenbach, Jr., daughter Janice Eisenbach Day and son-in-law Robert of Baton Rouge; son Robert L. Eisenbach III and daughter-in-law Barbara of Piedmont, California; four grandchildren, Robin Day of Baton Rouge, Lauren Day Walker and husband David Walker of Mandeville, and Rose Eisenbach and Samuel Eisenbach of Piedmont, California; two great-grandchildren, Ethan Scott and Emma Scott and their step-sisters Sophia and Madison Walker; sister-in-law Lynnette Eisenbach Scherzer of White Plains, New York; and a special niece, Ann London Liberman and husband Mitch, of Houston, Texas, and grand-niece Leslie Liberman, of New York City.
