Jeanne Talmadge

Jeanne Talmadge passed away at the age of 88 on Sept. 21, 2015, in Seattle, surrounded by many generations of her family.

Jeanne was born on May 31, 1927, to Philip and Erna Albert. She graduated from West Seattle High School. In 1948, Jeanne married Judson Talmadge and together they raised three children.

Jeanne and her husband lived in West Seattle and later on Whidbey Island at Greenbank. After a successful 34-year career working at Boeing, Jeanne retired. Throughout her lifetime Jeanne’s true passion was her family.

She was known as a big-hearted woman who embraced a legion of friends. Jeanne cultivated loving relationships with her family and friends and always kept in close touch. Her remembrances of all life’s milestones, such as a birthday or anniversary were met with an appropriate card or phone call expressing her love and kind thoughts.

Jeanne was an avid bridge player, hostess, cat lover and shopper. She especially enjoyed Christmas. Her caring nature knew no bounds. The values she instilled in her family and the love she gave to others was cherished. Jeanne will be greatly missed.

Jeanne is survived by her children, Philip Talmadge (Darlene), Lauren Orheim (Paul) and Judson Talmadge; seven grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Phyllis Overdahl (Norman) and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Judson.

A memorial service to celebrate Jeanne’s incredible life will be held at 1:30 p.m. Friday, October 30, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland on Whidbey Island.
