Life Legacy:
Jean Anne Yeager, born on October 5, 1954 in Tacoma, WA, unexpectedly passed away on August 8, 2012. The room overflowed with family and the smell of lavender while Celtic music played in the background. Jean Anne was the youngest of six girls, growing up in Tacoma’s Hill Top area. She graduated from Stadium High School in 1972 and received her associate’s degree from Tacoma Community College. Jean’s greatest sacrifice in life was for her children, Corinne (Bruneau) Giles, Angela (Bruneau) Baker, and Travis Lee Powell. She was a single mother who struggled often but worked every day of her life to provide for her children, and provide she did. In 2009 she met Fred Pings, and the two of them started trading visits between Washington, Wisconsin, and everywhere in between. They fell deeply in love, and Fred packed his things and moved west. They were married April 30, 2011, and embarked on many more adventures, including time in Europe and spending every available moment with their grandson, Tanner. Although Jeannie’s life was short, it was full; she met her first grandchild, walked her daughter Angela down the aisle, and watched her son, Travis, graduate high school. Jean Anne is survived by her husband Fred, her three children and grandson Tanner, her five sisters, Mickey, Barbara, Jodi, Bette, Margret and countless friends from the Pierce County Health Department and Lake Bronson. Her life was not long enough for those of us left behind, but she did not miss any part of it. She lived life to the fullest, wild and free. A Celebration of Jeannie's Life will be held at the Fruitland Grange Hall on Friday, October 5th, 2012 at 4:00 PM.

Messages of Condolence:

"Aunt Jeannie, Im sorry we didnt get to spend more time together. I envied your happiness & the love you showered on your children. I am glad you are in Heaven watching out for all of us now, because we could not have a stronger person in our corner to warn us if we are about to do something stupid. Im sure I will hear from you soon... I Love & Miss You! Barbie Jo XOXOXO"

"So funny, and at times irreverant, like the rest of us. Always laughing, making fun of us and yourself. Boy, did you ever have fun these last few yrs. & ya even got to retire from work for too short a time. You found love - lucky you (and Fred too). For the most part, and whenever possible, you did it your way - Hey, Jeannie, isn't that a song? :-) Smiling up at ya! Love ya!"
- Bette, #4 sister

"I love you so much Mom. I am so proud of the Woman, Mother, Wife, Friend, Sister, and Grandmother that you are. I am so sad and in such great pain right now, but I am so grateful that you were mine, even though it wasn't for long enough. I hope to hear from you soon and Tanner loves and misses his Gramma "Omama".....I told him that you are with the stars in the sky watching over us, all of the time now."

"Sharing travel stories with Jeannie go back many years. It will continue from Japan as I drink a toast to Jeannie on her birthday. To her family I send my deep sorrow that Jeannie has passed from this life. Although I will not be here in person as you celebrate Jeannie's life on her birthday, you will all be in my thoughts as I I make that toast from far away."
- Darlyne Reiter

"Jeannie was my very dear friend who I loved very much. Together, we laughed, shared secrets, shopped, played, and even once got hopelessly lost in Seattle and couldn't stop laughing about it. There was nothing I wouldn't do for her, and I felt I could count on her in the same way. I miss her so much, but somehow I feel she is still here, watching and smiling that crooked little mischevious smile of hers, always ready for some fun. "
- Kathe Miller

"I am heartbroken at the loss of my friend Jeannie. We met at the health department while I was working through nursing school. We had some really fun times and fun talks about everything! Peace be with her family during this time! Love Kristy Jones(Peterson) and family"
- Kristy Jones

"I cannot believe you are gone Jeannie, but you will never be forgotten. We started at the Health Department within a month of each other back in 1987 and have stayed in touch throughout the years. I will treasure the time we spent together both off and on the job and the memories will be so much more precious now. I will miss you so very much my friend."
- Medori Hill

"Jeannie was there for me as I went through a huge life change in late 2009, and I was there for her while she and my brother Fred were getting comfortably secure with themselves and family. We had sisterly fun together, and gave each other sisterly advice! I am so thankful that I was able to visit her & Fred in their Eatonville home in January 2011, and be a part of their life. My deepest condolences to Jeannie's family for their loss. I will come to the Celebration of Life, and am looking forward to meeting more family and friends. Rest in Peace Jeannie! Keep a watch over all of us. "
- Peggy Pings

"I always enjoyed our short visits at the Health Department over the years. You would fill me in on your family and adventures, as you spoke your joy was priceless and filled the room. I treasure our high school years together, coming to you house with all your sisters and our craziness. Trying to blow dry our hair over the heat vents. I don't think we had blow dryer's back than:) You will be missed by many, as you are a blessing to us all. Love and Blessings, Rickie Lee "
- Rickie Lee Olson (Rang)

"Jeannie, We didn't know you that well, but we are thankful for your love for Fred. We were able to see the deep love that you both had for each other. Our sympathies to your family. The deeper the love, the pain of loss is felt even more. May the sweet memories & pictures be of some comfort in the days to come"
- Tom & Rita Johnson
