Jean A. Dreifuerst

Jean Ann Dreifuerst, 70, of FDL passed away suddenly on Saturday December 19, 2020, at St. Agnes Hospital, surrounded by family.

Jean was born on April 24, 1950, the daughter of Marvin and Mary Dreifuerst.

Jean always had a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. She was the family historian, and had an incredible memory. In fact, the entire family looked forward to a phone call from Jean on a Birthday, Anniversary or a Holiday.

Jean truly was the Guiding Light of the family. Anyone who knew her adored her. Jean will be missed.

Jean is survived by her seven siblings Ann Cartwright, Julie Unferth, Mark (Marcia) Dreifuerst, Laura (Larry) Richardson, Clare Ferdinand, Jane (Scott) Leland, Paula (Rod) Marques.

She is also survived by nieces and nephews Ryan (Kahlee Hansen) Cartwright, Drew (Amanda) Cartwright, Austin (Aimee) Dreifuerst, Stephen Dreifuerst, Kate McGrath, Lisa Koepsell Ferdinand, Luke Ferdinand, Stephen Ferdinand, Isaac Leland, Nicole Marques, Alex Marques, Jennifer Marques; great nephews Weston Ferdinand, Avery Cartwright and Ryder Cartwright; and step-nieces Brittany (Bryan) Richardson Wendlant, Jessica (CJ) Richardson Smith, Catherine Richardson and Lauren Richardson.

Jean was preceded in death by her parents, niece Marissa Dreifuerst, nephew Eric Ferdinand and brother-in-law Gary Cartwright.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Zacherl Funeral Home is serving the family.
