Jean Sackenreuter passed away peacefully on August 1, 2019 in Chelan, Washington. Jean Cook was born on July 10, 1927 in Bellingham, Washington to Henry and Effie Cook. She graduated from Mount Baker High School in 1945.
Jean married Clair Sackenreuter on May 4,1946 and they had three children, Rick, Steve and Karla. Jean and Clair celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary in May of 2013. Clair passed away peacefully on June 3, 2013.
Jean worked at Beebe Orchard Company as an apple sorter for many years. She was an active member of the Chelan Methodist Church. As a Cub Scout leader she helped mentor many local boys and provided wonderful leadership. She loved gardening and tending to her beautiful rose garden.
Upon Clair’s retirement he and Jean moved from the hatchery to Chelan where they lived comfortably in their home. They traveled extensively with their RV Trailer and spent wonderful times with their family and friends. It was always fun for them to runaway to be snowbirds in California, Arizona and other southern states each winter. They also enjoyed trips to Yellowstone National Park, Banff/Lake Louise Canada, the Texas Panhandle and fishing in Canada.
Jean is survived by her children Rick Sackenreuter, of Chelan, Steve (Linda) Sackenreuter of Woodinville, and Karla Sackenreuter of Chelan along with three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. Jean always had a smile on her face and a warm greeting for everyone. Jean also provided unconditional love and support to her family.
