Jeanne Lois Faber Alberts

Oconomowoc - Nov 19 1924 - Apr 6 2020

Jeanne Lois (Faber) Alberts decided she had planted enough beauty on this earth and died peacefully on Monday the 6th of April at Shorehaven. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of almost 55 years, Roy E. Alberts, in 2004.

Jeanne grew up in Milwaukee and graduated from Washington High School. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and Spanish from Carroll College, where she met Roy, the love of her life.

Jeanne loved people and always made those around her feel good. She always had a smile or a giggle that would brighten up the room. She was creative and artistic, crafting dozens of beautiful quilts, planting hundreds of tulips, delphiniums and mini-roses, and taking outstanding photographs of nature and family members. She won the Blue Ribbon Grand Prize in the Friends of Retzer Nature Center photo contest with her photo "Adventure Trail."

Jeanne volunteered at the Retzer Apple Festival, Hawks Inn, Oconomowoc Hospital gift shop, Delafield Presbyterian Church, and with the Girl Scouts when her daughters were young. The Alberts family spent four years in New Jersey before settling in Wauwatosa in 1962. Jeanne spent many vacations camping all around the United States, including a month-long camping trip with Roy and all four daughters when her youngest was only three years old!

Jeanne is lovingly survived by her daughters Gay (Jake) Ruby; Ginger Goral; Gina (Eric) Peter; and Ginny (Jeff) Jacob; nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, all of whom brought great joy to her life.

Jeanne's daughters are grateful for her exceptional caregivers at Shorehaven, who brightened her life and took such good care of her.

Remembrances in Jeanne's name may be made to Carroll University, Waukesha or Shorehaven Center for Life Enrichment, Oconomowoc.

A family celebration of Jeanne's life will take place at a future date.
