Oldenburg, Jean M. (4 MAY 1941 - 8 JAN 2020)

She loved going to church and was a devoted member of Christ Lutheran Church. She also enjoyed making wedding candles, sewing, camping, caring for plants, working with older people and gambling, but most of all, she loved socializing and spending time with her family and friends.
