Magdalen Ibach Sheehan Notice
Sheehan, Magdalen Ibach
Passed peacefully away June 25, 2013. Born 1929 outside Strasburg, ND, part of a community of can-do German-Russians who farmed the plains state, she came to a bustling 1950s Milwaukee. Living a fully engaged life, she worked for the DOD in Europe, founded a Milwaukee company, traveled the world, taught her three daughters laughter, how to cultivate a home and the earth, business acumen, generosity and fearlessness.
Magdalen was never far from water or her loving husband Jack of 53 years. Deeply missed by her daughters Jacqueline (John Bredar) of Washington, DC, Diane of Chicago, and Colleen (Michael Swinger) of Chicago, she delighted her five grandchildren Hannah, Henry, Madeleine, Andrew and Ethan. She is survived by four of her 11 siblings and many remarkable friends, whom she loved. Honorary donations may be made to PBS programs at:
