Jeanne M. (Duffy) Sjogren was called Home by her Heavenly Father on November 1, 2018. Jeanne (or Jean) was born in Brunswick, Maine, October 4, 1945, the daughter of the late Patrick H. Duffy and Louisia M. Lavallee. She was the youngest of four children.

When she was seven years old her widowed mother and three siblings moved from Maine to Oregon, and settled in Roseburg.

She leaves behind her loving husband, Dennis Sjogren; five children, Daniel (Kandi) Birdsell, Sandy deRoss, Richard (Lani) Birdsell, Scott (Salina) Birdsell, Kristina (Cliff) Lampton; and two step-children, Scott (Marji) Sjogren and Cyndi (Scott) Michaels. She has 20 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Jeanne has two sisters, Patricia Terho (Tigard), Marie Jones (Eugene); a brother, Daniel Duffy (Dallas, TX); and many nieces and nephews.

Jeanne was an avid gardener, very talented greeting card maker, creative crafter and excellent cook. She was an enthusiastic sports fan who enjoyed watching and (loudly) cheering for the Oregon Ducks football team. She really loved camping and being out-of-doors. Family and friends were Jean’s passion and delight.

She was a sweet, caring person, who was loved dearly by her family.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Jeanne to be held at Melrose Grange Building at 3811 Melrose Road, Roseburg, OR, on Saturday, November 10, starting at 5 p.m. Family and friends are invited to come and share their memories of Jeanne.
