Jeanne P. Cramer (5/26/32 – 11/28/20)

Jeanne passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving husband, Curt, and three daughters Susan (Jon) Nolan, Ginny (Tom) Traub, and Martha (Lex) Huberts. She is survived by her 7 grandchildren: K.C. (Abby), Patrick (fiancé Rebecca), and Katie (fiancé Tommy) Nolan; Carina and Maddie Traub; Alyssa (Kevin) Sullivan and Mette Huberts and 1 great grandson: Jack Nolan. She is also survived by her brother Bill (Sandy) Priebe, and brothers-in-law Frank Anderson Sr., Ward (Judy) and Grant (Carol) Cramer, and sisters-in-law Linda Cramer and Nancy (Dave) Trehey and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Ed and Eleanor Priebe and sister Martha Anderson.

Jeanne was raised in Wilmette, IL and graduated from New Trier HS. She earned a bachelor’s degree from DePauw University where she was an active member in the Alpha Phi Sorority. She worked most of her career at Marshall Field’s in Chicago, IL and Wauwatosa, WI managing the food services department. Jeanne thoroughly enjoyed interacting with customers and employees and planning special events.

Jeanne’s caring heart led her to volunteering at several health care organizations including the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinic in Slinger, WI. Her passion was gardening and working in the yard with Curt. She loved watching the birds, deer, turkeys, and other wildlife pass by her family room windows. Traveling and visiting family was also especially important to her.

She was a caring, loving, and giving woman who added fun to every occasion. She touched so many people’s lives in a meaningful way. To all who were a part of her life, we thank you.

Rest in peace Jeanne. You earned your peace. We will always love you. What’s not to love in a person who made it her day-job to look for presents to give to family and friends? From the first stay at your house in the Fall of 1984, I have been impressed with your positive attitude. Even right now, I am at a loss when trying to remember a single occurrence of you criticizing a person. And things were not easy. You worked so hard to give your girls their future. Long hours and commutes, working with young -- often disadvantaged employees – who needed tough love. But in the face of the daily struggles, there were always those smiles, not infrequently with that naughty side to it. And there were always projects, with the annual Christmas cards getting top billing till the end. Every year when Christmas arrives and Martha – let’s be honest who does anything around here – pulls out the ornaments there is that little favorite one of mine. You made an angle out of pasta pieces and push-pins dipped in white paint. I was lucky enough to see you make them, gluing them together one by one, hour-after-hour until everyone in your wide circle at Marshall Fields would receive one. As did we. I don’t think I fully understood the value of little gestures like that. The meaning of the time you put in. If I do a bit better now, it is because you showed me.
Son-in-law, Lex Huberts

I only had the pleasure of meeting Grandma Jeanne once, but I feel so grateful to have had that opportunity.

It was 2016, and I went back to Boston for Carina's graduation. It was such a joyous occasion because not only was I able to reunite with my college roommates, I got to reunite with the Traub clan! This was when I first met Grandma Jeanne and I remember being immediately struck by how much of her I recognized through Carina and her mom, Ginny. We enjoyed dinner together, and she and I chatted at the dinner table, where we were seated next to one another. I have absolutely no recollection of our conversation, but what I do recall is the feeling she gave me: one of such warmth, spirit, good humor, and the kind of love that just emanates from grandparents, even if they aren't yours.

I am sending my deepest sympathies to Jeanne's family.
