On March 01, 2020 Jean quietly passed away under hospice care at home in Klamath Falls, Oregon. She was just one day shy of her 94th birthday.
Born March 02, 1926, Jean, the eldest of her 3 sisters, Beth (Davis), Clara (Buske), and Mary (Davis), grew up on the Parker family homestead in Hildebrand, Oregon where she enjoyed the country life. She graduated from Bonanza High School, and later married Fredrick Victor Flackus in January, 1946. Jean and Victor made their home in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and had two children, Robert and Duane.
Jean worked many years in the laundry/dry cleaning industry until “Vic” passed away in 1986.
Jean enjoyed her retired life in Klamath Falls, often recounting stories of long-ago, such as childhood 4H events, attending rodeos, and her exciting deer hunting adventures. She even won a rifle one year for having the biggest buck! Jean was an accomplished artist, and completed many oil paintings that depicted country and wildlife scenes.
As a member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints, Jean received great comfort from her faith and from her many LDS friends who visited her frequently.
She will be greatly missed by her surviving children; Robert Flackus, Duane Flackus (wife Linda); her sister, Mary Davis; and her grandchildren, Toby Flackus and Todd Flackus (wife Misty); and great grandchild, Legend Flackus.
A memorial service to be scheduled later this year.
