Jean passed away peacefully yesterday morning. The hospice nurse was there counting her breaths, and one breath there was no more. No more pain!
Jean wanted to give her body to science, and let it do one last contribution, but she was not a candidate because she had encapsulated TB since she was a child. She will be cremated and buried next to Dick in the Halvorson Cemetery in Menomonie Wisconsin. Dick’s mother grew up in Menomonie and was a Halvorson, so it is the family cemetery.
As many of you know, Dick passed away last October, mid-pandemic. A joint celebration of life for Jean and Dick is being planned for this fall. Details will be posted here on Caring Bridge
Thank you all for your messages and farewells to Jean. Reading them to her was the highlight of our days.
Show your love and support for Jean.
