Eugenia ‘Jean’ Panzer, 91
May 23, 1926 — Nov. 15, 2017
Eugenia “Jean” Panzer (nee Linzmaier) of Cedarburg, was Born to Eternal Life on Nov. 15, 2017, at the age of 91 years. Loving mother of Judy (Jeff) Moore and Mary (Jack) George; proud grandmother of Don Moore and Brian (Erin) Moore; cherished great-grandmother of Alex Moore and Braden Moore.
Jean is also survived by her beloved sisters-in-law: Caroline Linzmaier, Evelyn Weber and Vi Ament. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.
In addition to her loving husband, Lloyd, Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Louis and Syvilla Linzmaier; parents-in-law, Joe and Marie Linzmaier; brothers, LJ and David Linzmaier, brothers-in-law Bob Weber and Bob Ament; nephew, David Linzmaier; and other beloved relatives, neighbors and friends.
Jean was born in River Rouge, Mich., on May 23, 1926. She moved to Wisconsin after her marriage to Lloyd Panzer on June 14, 1947. They lovingly raised their daughters in a Catholic home. She always considered the Blessed Mother, St. Jude and St. Anthony to be her personal confidants.
Anyone could call on Jean whenever they needed a willing ear, a warm hug or just a good laugh. She was completely devoted to those she loved. There was always a vacancy at “The Panzer Motel.” After retirement from J.C. Penny’s Credit Department, she enjoyed her involvement in the St. Francis Woman’s Guild. She also enjoyed traveling, memorializing trips with diaries and photo albums.
Many more friends were made after moving to Lasata Care Center in November 2011, where everyone she encountered was met with her smile and kindness. She enjoyed participating in many activities and spent much of her time sending greeting cards throughout the year.
A Memorial Mass will be held at St. Francis Borgia Catholic Church, in Cedarburg, at a later date.
A warm and heartfelt thank you from her family to the wonderful caregivers at Lasata. Jean truly considered them to be part of her family. They gave her love and comfort until the end of her life on earth. God Bless each of you. We also want to thank the countless relatives, neighbors and friends who called and visited her often.
Prayers for all of the dearly departed will be appreciated.
