Jean C. Passehl, 84, of Racine, passed away Saturday, March 31, 2018 when Jean was reunited with her husband of over 64 years.

She was born November 25, 1933 in Racine, the daughter of Erville and Sylvia (Nee: Seideman) Buchman. Jean married Robert Passehl on February 7, 1953 in Racine. Jean was the quiet strength of the family. She was an avid Brewer fan, enjoyed reading, bowling, crocheting, gardening, solitaire, and expressing her love of music through the Hula Cats. In addition to the time she spent during retirement in Florida, she enjoyed spending time at their permanent campsite with friends and family. Jean had a special place in her heart for the lifetime of friendship she shared with the woman from “Club”.

Jean will be deeply missed by her six children, Linda (Marc) Henkel, Judy (John) Vermey, Vicki (David) Barke, Terri (Reid) Pfarr, Alan (Brenda) Passehl and David (Kerry) Passehl, along with seventeen grandchildren, sixteen great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. Jean was preceded in death by her husband Robert, her parents, sister Audrey Erickson and a great-grandchild Zachary Kumm.
