Jeannie Embree (McDowell) Vanderbruggen Obituary
Jeannie was 73 years old when she passed away suddenly in Marysville on May 9, 2014.

She is survived by her loving husband, Larry, of 24 years, son Mike, daughter-in-law Laura, daughter Kathy, stepsons Tony and Chris, half-sister Donna, and her husband Don Miller. Jeannie is also survived by 9 grandchildren, John, Scott, Christine, Allie, Cody, Kiaya, Tait, Jacob, Malika, and two great grandchildren, Cayden and Elli.

Jeannie is preceded by her parents, Jean and Jack Grabenstatter, sister Beverly, brother Dean and son Robert.

Born on December 16, 1940 in Sierra Madre, CA, Jeannie was raised in West Covina and graduated from West Covina High School in 1958.

Jeannie had a love for the mountains and moved to Brownsville in 1976. She loved the outdoors and always seemed to have a project in the works, whether it be crocheting, making various crafts or candles.

She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and all who knew her. With her beautiful smile, Jeannie would light up any room. She is now resting peacefully with the Lord and will no doubt continue to smile upon us.

An internment memorial service will be held on June 7, 2014 at 11am at the Brownsville Cemetery followed by a reception at the Brownsville Community Center at 12pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to your local Hospice.
