Jean Margaret Whalen
December 10, 1924 – May 22, 2018

Jean passed away peacefully at age of 93 at her home with her daughters by her side.

Jean was born in Iron Mountain, Michigan where her foundational years were in Northern Michigan.  She moved to Detroit Michigan where she fell in love and married Francis Austin Whalen in 1954.  They were married 47 years before his death in 2001.

Jean returned to college in her 50’s to obtain her nursing degree.  She spread her kindness and grace with her colleagues and mothers and babies on the maternity ward until her retirement at age 70.

Jean also lived in Oregon, Colorado and Washington.  During her last years she was able to spend time living with her daughters.  Jean is survived by her daughters Sharon, Sheila and Megan.

Jean enjoyed spending time with her family, shopping, watching sports, her faith, and using her hands for creative projects.

Jean’s life was about kindness, compassion, caring, spirituality, humor and she had a quick wit.  She will be greatly missed.

  1. Jean was a wonderful friend to my mother Marie Casilio during the time when Jean lived in Oregon. My family and I saw firsthand all of the amazing qualities of Jean’s that were mentioned above.

    In addition, Jean’s sister and daughters treated my mother with amazing kindness and compassion. Personally, I’ll never forget Jean’s gentle wit and smile.
