No words can aptly describe the depths of our sorrow at having to announce the passing of Jeanne Wagner. She was born on February 13, 1951 a daughter to whom her mother Ruth declared was "The sunshine of her life." Jeanne was a lifelong resident of northern California. A graduate of Del Campo high school, she worked for the Department of Motor Vehicles for over 25 years. Prior to her retirement she met and married the love of her life Carlton F. Wagner. In 1998, together they established a commercial truck licensing company in Weimar. Her extensive knowledge of the state laws concerning vehicle licensing and registration were the impetus that propelled the company's launch and ultimate success, which carries on today. Jeanne was the kind of person who's upbeat and optimistic demeanor provided a glimmer of sunlight for those around her, even under the darkest of circumstances. She approached life with a "glass half full attitude," seldom seen without a smile, often times she could be found volunteering to help disabled veterans and people in need. She loved to sew, cook, collect miniature shoes and purses, going on cruises or seeing a Broadway show, but especially, she loved spending time with her family and husband Carl. On September 1, 2018 at midnight, our beloved Jeanne passed away due to a brief illness. Although the sun has set for her here on earth, those who know her best know that heaven is a much brighter place with her there now. Jeanne was preceded in death by her husband Carl, her sister Judi, brother Joe, and father Pete. She is survived by her mother Ruth Sharp, daughter Wendi Cook and her son Nathan Duenas, stepson's Mike and Mark Wagner, and their four children. A memorial service will take place on Wednesday September 12, 2018 at the Citrus Heights Community Center located at 6300 Fountain Square, Citrus Heights at 1:00 in the South Flex room ABC. In lieu of flowers donations for the Disabled Veterans Golf Center will be accepted.
