Jeanie Bazer, Church Secretary

Jeanie is a local gal who is from an old Covington family and has lived in Covington practically all her life.  She grew up attending Covington Presbyterian Church and is grateful for the foundation received there.

Jeanie has worked at Covington Presbyterian Church since 2003.  Prior to her employment at CPC, she worked for her family business, Marsolan Feed & Seed Store.  Later she worked in the antique world, employed at The Past Restored and also selling furniture and smalls on eBay for antique stores and individuals in Covington and the surrounding area.  As this was a part-time endeavor, Jeanie also worked for Northlake Dental Association as Executive Secretary, organizing CE events and other duties.

In 2009, she published a book, “Memom’s Diary” which is about her family, the Destrehans of River Road and the Harveys, who were responsible for building the Harvey Canal which expanded commerce through this waterway. There is a lot of Louisiana history involved in the book.  She also published a reference book that her husband, Phil Bazer, authored titled “New Orleans Cutlers Until the 1900s.”  Both books are in the Genealogy section of the St. Tammany Parish Library.  Jeanie loves working at Covington Presbyterian Church saying the people are friendly and like family to her.  She is in the office Tuesday – Thursday from 9AM until 2 PM.
