Jeanne Mauck passed away peacefully on July 26, 2020 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her 100 years of life were spent in Cape May, New Jersey; Philadelphia; Detroit; Bloomfield Township, MI; St. Petersburg, FL; and Grand Rapids. The oldest of five children, she attended the one room school house down the road, became an excellent student, and developed a life-long love of the south Jersey seashore. While working for RCA Victor in Philadelphia she met the love of her life, Lt. William Mauck, just before his discharge from the US Navy. They married, raised their five children, and spent the rest of their lives in Michigan. Besides the seashore, Jeanne loved children, traveling, sewing and knitting, dancing, playing golf with friends, and sharing her great sense of humor. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
She was preceded in death by Bill, her husband of 60 years, her daughter Kimberly (Boyd) Moore, her brother Bill and sister Ginny.
She leaves behind her loving and caregiving son, Bill Mauck; three daughters, Kristi Mauck (Doug) Dewey, Karen (Bill) Kellogg, and Kathy (Cork Farkas) Mauck; two sisters, Flo Fulginiti and Carol Apito; seven grandchildren, Courtney, Jenny, and Casey (Danielle) Kellogg, Christopher and Jessi (Ryan Shore) Dewey, and Jon and Levi Moore; one great-grandchild, Paislee Moore.
The family is very grateful to the Breton Extended Care staff for the wonderful care they provided along with Jeanne’s son, and to the staff of Emmanuel Hospice.
A private memorial service is planned for the family. Donations in Jeanne’s memory may be made to Emmanuel Hospice, 401 Hall St SW, Ste 263, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.
