Jan Frink Feasley
Jean Feasley's long, wonderful journey on earth ended on Wednesday, March 16, 2022 when she entered God's Eternal Kingdom. A fourth generation Oregonian, her early years were spent in Neskowin, Oregon, where her parents owned and operated the general store. Later years were spent in Eugene, where she graduated from high school and attended the University of Oregon. She joined Alpha Phi Sorority. During her years at the U of O, she met a handsome young man from California by the name of William F Feasley.
As America was drawn into World War II, Bill was accepted into the Officer Training School at Quantico, graduating as a Major in the US Marine Corps. Bill and Jean were married in 1942 and they moved to the San Francisco Bay area where he was stationed until his deployment. Bill served in the Pacific and Jean returned to Oregon, where she served as Deputy Sheriff in McMinnville. After the war, the couple welcomed one daughter, Joan Elizabeth and, after moving to Palo Alto for work, another daughter, Shelley Virginia. After transferring to Bellevue, Washington for seven years, the family returned to Oregon, settling in Lake Oswego in 1962.
Family was always important to Jean and her two sisters Virginia (MacDonald) and Lois (Harlow) were her best friends. She was very good at nurturing friendships and she was beloved by many.
Well-read, with a keen intellect and wonderful sense of humor, she was a devoted wife and mother. We, her daughters, miss her terribly but she was ready to be at rest. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for the loving care she received from the Care Team at Mary's Woods during the last year and a half of Mom's Life. We would also like to thank the team at Brighton Hospice for the special Servants that they are, doing God's work here on earth.
Jean is survived by daughter Joan Hintz and son-in-law Gary, daughter Shelley Palmer and son-in-law Jim; grandson Kelly Hintz and wife Amy, grandson Shawn Hintz and wife Allison; and great-grandchildren Grace and William; grandson Brian Hintz and wife Terri; and great-grandchildren Gavin and Ellie, and granddaughter Megan Palmer; and great-granddaughter Clara. Also survived by Cousin Judi Burg.
A life-long Episcopalian, a Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, June 25, 2022 at 2pm., at St. Francis of Assisi in Wilsonville. Per Jean's request, memorial donations may be sent to: OHSU MS Center PO Box# 29017, Portland, OR 97296 or: 1-800-462-6602 or: https.//give.ohsufoundation.org
