E. Jeannette Clements, 60, a retired government employe who was active in American Legion Auxiliary organizations, died Sept. 11 at her home in Silver Spring after a heart attack.

Mrs. Clements was a life-member of the Cissel-Saxon Post No. 41 of the American Legion Auxiliary. She had served two terms as the auxiliary's president during the early 1950s and was its treasurer at the time of her death.

She also belonged to the Legion Auxiliary's 8 and 40, and was a charter member and treasurer of Cabane No. 265 of the auxiliary's LaFemmes.

Mrs. Clements was a native of Washington. After working for IBM during World War II, she joined the government as a file clerk with the Treasury Department in 1946. She later worked for the Army Department in the 1950s, then spent about five years with the old Atomic Energy Commission before retiring for reasons of health in 1965.

She is survived by her husband, Stanley, a World War II Army veteran, of the home; two daughters, Margaret Tuttle, of Bowie, and Norma Jean Landress, of Homestead, Fla; three sons, Edward, of Beltsville, Ronald, of Richmond, and Kenneth, of Anderson, S.C.: two sisters, Alice Herndon, of West Virginia, and Thelma King, of Upper Marlboro; two brothers, Herbert O'Neill, of Annandale, and Norman O'Neill, of Mount Rainier, and 18 grandchildren.
