Jeanne L. Putz, 74, went home to be with her Lord on December 12, 2016 in Stockton, CA. She was born on October 10, 1942 in Illinois.
She is preceded in death by her father Raymond Couklin. Jeanne is survived by her loving husband of 55 years Don Putz, her children Scott Donald and Sherrie Jamero. She was blessed by her two grandchildren, Nicholas and Natalie, her beloved mother Nina Conklin and her siblings, Gary Conklin (Kathy) and Raymond Conklin.
Jeanne worked in education for 27 years, working at French Camp Elementary School as a teacher’s aide. Jeanne loved unconditionally and truly loved being a wife, mother and grandmother. She supported her husband in all of his endeavors as well as her children and grand children with their hopes and dreams. Her caring giving heart was like no others as she was selfless always putting others before her own needs. Jeanne loved to laugh and enjoyed her monthly Bunco groups and her friends at the Red Hat Society. She loved arts and crafts, decorating and traveling back east with her husband. She was an avid reader and loved her Shih Tzu puppies. Jeanne’s passion was Christmas. She truly thought it was the most wonderful time of the year. She had that special sparkle in her eye when the lights came out, Christmas music playing and the Christmas decorations were hung just perfectly. Jeanne will be remembered as a devoted wife, a loving daughter and sister and an amazing mother and grandmother.
