Born: April 21, 2014 in Garnavillo, Iowa, USA
Died: Dallas, Oregon, USA
Jean Margaret Allyn was born and raised on a farm in Garnavillo, Iowa. After finishing High School she attended the University of Wisconsin where she completed a Pharmacy degree and met and later married John Rennebohm. She was a practicing Pharmacist for more than 40 years where
she enjoyed serving, meeting and helping people. The greatest joy in Jean’s life was being a dedicated mother to her five children, Susan, Bonny,
Mary, Sally and Gary. Her children brought her much joy, laughter, and adventure which included five trips to Australia, three trips to Singapore, two trips to Europe as well as travels to New Zealand, the Fiji Islands and much of the USA. Jean is survived by her children and seven grandchildren who live in Washington, Papua New Guinea and Australia. Jean truly enjoyed life and it was often the simple things that brought her the most satisfaction: feeding and watching the birds, squirrels and ducks outside her kitchen window, engaging in card or other games, watching movies and cooking for family and friends. Jean could always find humor in everyday life and it was her ability to smile and laugh that inspired those around her. She entered the gates of Heaven to be with her Lord and Savior in her forever home after several months of various health issues. Thank You for your legacy Mom.
