Carol Ann Jahn

 

Carol Ann Jahn, age 92, of West Bend, WI, formerly of Alma, WI, passed away surrounded by family on January 30, 2023.

She was born on December 6, 1930, in the Town of Belvidere, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, the daughter of Emil and Della (Weis) Stuber. She was baptized and confirmed at Christ Lutheran Church, Cochrane.

Carol attended Rose Valley Grade School and Cochrane High School and graduated valedictorian of the class of 1948. After graduation, she worked in the office of the J. R. Watkins Company in Winona for several years. On September 15, 1951, Carol was united in marriage to Allen Jahn at Christ Lutheran Church, Cochrane. He preceded her in death on May 6, 2003.

Carol and her husband farmed together on the Jahn century family farm until 1993, at which time they retired to Alma.

She was a faithful member of Zion Lutheran Church until its closing in 2012. She then joined Christ Lutheran at Cochrane. She was active in the Zion Ladies Aid, serving all offices at one time or another. She was also a member of Christ Lutheran Ladies Aid. Carol was also an active participant in her community as a member of the Lincoln Homemakers, Buffalo County Homemakers, and the Alma-Nelson Garden Club. She also volunteered at the Alma Nutrition site, Alma Food Pantry, and the Alma School, until her diminished eyesight, due to macular degeneration, forced her to quit these endeavors.

Carol enjoyed her family, traveling, reading, dancing, snowmobiling, and playing cards.

Carol will be sadly missed by her devoted children, Rev. Curtis (Susan) Jahn, Jackson, WI, Cyndy (Martin) Thomas, Powell, WY, and Brian (Anne) Jahn, Nashville, TN; seven grandchildren, Julie and Tim Jahn, Kaitlyn (Wael) Shenouda, Sam, and Karly Thomas, Michael Jahn and Brianna (Ryan) Malinowski; and her three great-grandchildren, Landen and Peyton Jahn, and Jack Malinowski. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews and dear friends.

Preceding her in death were her parents, husband Allen, sister Verdelma who died in infancy, brother Ronald, sister Virginia, brothers-in-law Oliver Korb and Stanley Jahn, and sisters-in-law Lorraine Stuber, Arline (Louis) Schmidknecht.
