June 07, 1950~January 17, 2023

Jean A. Brumley “Jeannie”, 72 of Spring Hill, Florida, passed away surrounded by family on January 17th, 2023, in Spring Hill, Florida. She was born in Charleston, West Virginia to Jack and Frances Hanson. Jeannie is survived by her loving husband of 51 years Allan Brumley, her brothers John Hanson (Phyllis), Randy Hanson (Terry), and Chuck Hanson (Kelly), her nieces and nephews Kevin Hanson, Karly LaFauce, Sara Modock, Kim Hanson, Scott Hanson, and Haley Hanson, and great nieces and nephews Malachi Hanson, Clayton Hanson, Brice Hanson, Bailey Hanson, Lennan LaFauce, Jaxon LaFauce, and Wyatt Modock.
Jeannie was a loving wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. She always shared her beautiful smile and love with others. She enjoyed spending time with her family and her dog Shadow. She was an off-road racer in the Bomber class and was a member of the Florida Off-Road Drivers Association. An avid Volkswagen enthusiast, she and Allan ran A & J Automotive together for over 25 years. They would attend car shows all over the United States to sell their Volkswagen collectibles and parts. In the summers, they would take their nieces and nephews on trips that made countless memories and many life lessons that will never be forgotten. Jeannie also enjoyed going to concerts, especially Kenny Rogers, “Under the Street Lamp”, and the Vocal Trash. Her contributions to the lives of many include the creation of a nonprofit in the late 80’s called the Florida Bug Jam, one of the largest Volkswagen shows in the Southeast that still operates today. While she was in charge, all profits earned at the Bug Jam were donated to All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida. Her hard work, passion, and dedication resulted in over 200k in donations. After stepping down from leadership of the Bug Jam, she worked for Publix in the deli department for over 10 years. Family meant everything to Jeannie, she was always there to lend a helping hand or to call and check in with words of encouragement. Although she will be greatly missed, her family will cherish the wonderful memories shared with her.
Please leave your memories of Jeannie in the Condolences below for her family to enjoy reading about the many lives she has touched over the years.
A private memorial with family and close friends will be held for Jeannie at a later date.

I have loved Jeannie like a sister. The fun we had going to Tennessee selling VW everything, coming down there to work wherever she needed at Bug Jam.
Always a smile, lots of laughs and a few sad times through the years.
The love that you always saw between the 2 of you was a wonderful thing.
Love you Allan

Jeannie was always a part of my life—growing up thur adulthood. She was such a great friend to all of us, especially my sister, Claudia. She and Allan had their shop for many years at our parents station. She and Allan were considered part of our family. She helped us with many family celebrations making sure we had the food we needed and that everything looked beautiful. I know I will miss Jeannie’s smile and laughter. My prayers are with you, Allan, and all of the Hanson “clan”. Love you all. God Bless you

We became like family because of our connection working on Bug Jam together . There was a lot of laughter and occasional tears through those many years, but those experiences created a life long bond between us. One of the things that I loved the most about Jeannie is that no matter what she was going through, she always had a smile and laugh to warm the hearts of others. Her presence will be greatly missed, but her legacy of love will live on. Praying for Allan, and the entire family. Love you all.

I am heartbroken at the loss of my friend of over 60 years. She was as much of a sister as I could ever know. Jeannie and Allan were a part of our family. I keep thinking of all the things we got into over the years, the laughter we shared, and had so much fun doing things together like traveling to VW car shows in other states. I just can’t fathom her not being here anymore to answer my phone calls, we could yack for hours. I just have to remember she is in a better place to wait for me to catch up with her one day. I thank God that she was a part of my life. Allan, I hope one day our hearts are healed of this broken heart we feel. Let me know if you need anything, I’m here if you need me.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie through her tireless work to raise donations for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. Her love of children and dedication to raise money through Bug Jam was heartfelt and inspiring. Each year when I attended Bug Jam, you could see her passion for giving back to our patients and families, combined with her love of VWs. She not only raised money for the hospital, she and her Bug Jam team also volunteered for our Telethon each year. Jeannie’s generous support touched countless pediatric patients over several decades. I’m blessed to have known Jeannie and will miss her. Allan, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jeannie, you will be greatly missed. I remember going in to A & J automotive when I was 14 after purchasing my 1973 vw beetle(still driving it). Allan made some repairs to my beetle over the course, you both were very kind to me. I always looked forward to seeing you both at Bug Jam. My condolences to the whole family.

I called Jeannie & Allen my Aunt and Uncle no matter if we were a blood family or not. I enjoyed helping out every year for the VW shows every since the first year at the Pasco Co Fairgrounds. I requested time off from work that weekend years in advance just to be there for them. As well as helping with the telathons for ACH. I will miss Aunt Jeannie greatly and if Uncle Allen needs anything I’ll be there.
