Weston – It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Jean Roskelley Langbehn on August 10, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer.
In addition to her loving husband Dale, Jean is survived by her three children – Melissa (David) Langbehn-Klein, David (Carol) Langbehn, & Gregg (Shelly) Langbehn. She is also survived by her grandchildren Logan, Justin, Connor, Lauren, Jordyn, Nathan, and Rayna. Other survivors are; Betty Eganhouse (Sister) & Chet Roskelley (Brother). Jean was preceded in death by her caring parents Willard & Theodosia Roskelley.
Jean entered the world on April 19, 1938 in Iowa, where she grew up on a farm. While attending DeWitt High School, she excelled in her studies, music, and also met her future husband, Dale.
Jean attended Iowa State Teachers College and would go on to teach in elementary schools. When she moved to Wausau, WI, she became active in church and women’s groups. While she loved to teach, sew and knit, her favorite pastime was discovering and researching her families’ ancestry.
Jean’s ultimate passion was caring for her family. She devoted countless hours watching them participate in sports and school activities. She made her greatest effort to be present for all of their milestones and achievements. She will be missed by us all.
Jean requested that there will be no public memorial service.
