Obituary: Jeanne L Maier 1929 - 2013
Jeanne L Maier was born on January 28th, 1929 in Lakin, KS to parents Lenora and Harold Young. In 1942 the family moved to Bremerton, WA where she met and married Louis “Red” Maier, in 1946. The couple raised their 3 boys in Bremerton.
When the kids were old enough, Reds job as a heavy equipment mechanic had them traveling from AK to AZ. This much traveling required Jeanne to be somewhat of a “Jane of all trades.” She enjoyed working with people in such jobs as a bank teller, tour coordinator at the Great Salt Lake, delivery driver for FedEx and most recently a volunteer at the Black Diamond History Museum.
The couple spent several years in Grand Canyon and Camp Verde, AZ near their children and grandchildren before retiring in Clearfield, UT. The last 9 years Jeanne spent in Enumclaw, WA where she was close to her brother.
Jeanne loved watching her great niece and nephews grow.
She was an avid reader and knitter. She had a remarkable memory for family history and was an amazing cook who loved to share her knowledge. Jeanne was preceded in death by her husband Red Maier, brothers Jack Young from Eugene, OR and Bill Young from Fairbanks, AK. Jeanne is survived by sons, Harold Maier in Mexico, Mike Maier from Cornville, AZ, Tom Maier from Grand Canyon, AZ and Daughter KJ Satrum Erie, PA. brother, Charles Young from Hobart, WA. Jeanne was so proud of her 8 grandchildren: Brad Maier, Chuck Maier, Dawn Maier Draney, Matt Maier, Mary Maier Robbins, Cora Maier Vinson, Gregory Maier and Rachel Maier and 13 beautiful great grandchildren.
