Jean M. Crane of Marysville, WA passed away peacefully on March 24, 2013 with her family at her side. Jean was born July 30, 1930 in Park Rapids, MN.
She was preceded in death by her husband,
David and her son, Bruce.
She is survived by son, David (Laurie) Crain of Lynnwood WA; daughter, Bonnie Niewenhuis of Everett; daughter, Connie (Tom) Wetzel of Camano Island, WA; son, Gary (Trudy) Crain of Arlington, WA; 11 grandchildren; and 15 great grandchildren.
Jean enjoyed her waitressing jobs, she loved her bingo, and she never found a casino she didn't like! But the true joy of her life was her family. She was the matriarch who made sure her family was together each week for Sunday dinners. She enjoyed traveling, camping and fishing with her husband of 60 years. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister, and will be missed by all.
Connie and the family would like to thank the staff at Merrill Gardens of Stanwood for their wonderful care, and especially to Di, who made Jean her special friend for the two years she was there.
Funeral services will be held at 11:30 a.m. Friday, March 29, 2013 at Schaefer-Shipman Funeral Home, 804 State Ave., Marysville. There will be a private family burial at 10:00 a.m. prior to the services at Cyprus Lawn Cemetery in Everett.
