Jean Pearl Lamers, Little Chute, age 85, died peacefully, surrounded by her family on April 10th, 2023. The Gates of Heaven opened, and the Lord welcomed a loving wife, nurturing & devoted mother of 5, caring & fun-loving grandma of 18, and great grandma of 37. Born on March 10, 1938, to Leora & Adrian Meidam. On April 8, 1958, she married Paul, her High School sweetheart & soulmate at St. John Catholic Church. They recently celebrated 65 years of marriage.
She enjoyed doing volunteer work for the church. She always had a fun time going out for dinner & drinks with girlfriends. There was a special bond & a lot of shenanigans with her friends in the sheepshead card club, which lasted for over 60 years. Mom & Dad enjoyed traveling, with friends, to Washington D.C. & many fun trips to Las Vegas.
Her greatest joy in life was the love for her children, daughters-in-law & sons-in-law. Extra blessings were wonderful grandchildren & great-grandchildren, and time spent with them was cherished. Weekly visits from great-grandson, Ethan, were so special. She was truly grateful for the love her family brought to her life. The Lord led Mom & Dad down the road of life, and what a ride it was! It was filled with laughter, love & many blessings. A big thank you to Connie & Brian for the “Mom and Dad Penthouse Suite”.
