To the family of Jean Roehr: your Mom and I taught at WCTC in the 1970's then we moved to Sheboygan .i taught at lakeshore Tech college Then. Beth and Chuck moved on Mueller Rd. about a block from where I lived and your Mom would visit me often . She always had a smile on her face. And was the life of the party. In Waukesha we would go out to dinner with several other couple and your parents. Those memories are vivid. I just got the news of her passing when I got back from LA where I took care of my Daughter who had a spinal fusion. Please accept our sincere sympathy. Claudette Forss and family

To everyone who knew Jean, please accept my deepest sympathy. Jean has always been a remarkable person with a great sense of compassion, humor and energy. Jean and I were "buddies" in Brownies and Girl Scouts while her mother and my mother were our scout leaders. I know you all have wonderful memories of her to keep in your hearts, as she was a truly a special person.

Sue, Chuck, Mason, Mitchell (and family). So very sorry to hear of Jean's passing. She was a delight to take care of and I'll miss seeing her cute hats. I enjoyed reminiscing with her about "back when" she was a nursing instructor. My thoughts & prayers are with your family at this hard time.

I had not known Jean long, but always admired her forthright, cheerful attitude. It was my honor and privilege to sing in the choir with her. I loved listening to her stories. My family and I will miss her greatly. I loved singing with Jean in the choir, because she always worked to make us sound better. A true musician at heart. And she had a sense of humor - she was willing to help the guys out on the tenor parts when the rest of the altos had their parts covered. I know we all miss her. God Bless you, Jean.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

To Patty and Family - I am very sorry for your loss. Based on what I see in my friend Patty and her family, her mother did a great job of raising her children and was a blessing to all. Keep the happy memories close, cherish them always.

I was unsure that this was the same Jean Roehr but one glance at her photo assured me it was. This lady was a true mentor to me while attending ADN program at the then Waukesha Tech. Not only was she a great lecturer but a profiecent RN that I admired. She demonstrated /exampled every aspect of my training that could possibly be imagined. Never negative, always direct, a wonderful laugh are the things I remember. Now over 35 years later, I remain a RN proud of my profession and more so the type of men/women attracted to it. While taking full time classes and working fulltime as a LPN, Mrs. Roehr was well aware of my obligations and yet not once did she cut me any slack. She challenged me with each assignment/practical. I can recall a paper due "at midnight" on a weekday summer night. I came home from my job, sat down to give it a final once over and type it (yesss type it ) and I planned to drive it to her home. After 4 hours of work, a 20 minute drive to her home, I was fearful to leave it in her mailbox. I rang the doorbell (at 11:45pm), she answered. She looked at me from squinted eyes, listened to the reason as to why I had woken her up, took my paper and said "Thank you, Ann and see you in the morning"...i was instantly relieved until she continued "in my office", she was gentle on me the next morning but, I stood repremanded re awakening her household and then, as I heard it, she used me as an example of how NOT to take every word she said verbatim. I admired her and regret your loss.

We so enjoyed singing with Jean in the Bethel Hill UMC church choir. She was partial to the songs that had a little more "pep". May you receive peace and comfort during this difficult time. Sincerely, Bill and Mary

Our visit with Jean last summer will be in our memory for ever. She was a wonderful friend for many years, camping, playing bridge and just talking. We will always have great memories of the times we have shared life together. Love and sympathy to the family. John and Kay
