Jean L. Wilder
Jan 28, 1928-July 27, 2014
Jean Lorraine Wilder died peacefully in her Pt. Fermin home Sunday at the age of 86 after extended illness. The daughter of Frank and Mary (neé Ghio) Acalin, Jean was born, raised, and lived all her life in San Pedro. Over the years she participated in numerous community organizations. A devoted wife, mother of six children, and grandmother of seven grandchildren, she was passionate about life. An avid reader and traveler, she loved ethnic culture, history, art, music, textiles, gardening and GOOD FOOD! She dedicated many years to teaching and performing ethnic dance. As a part of the 125th anniversary of San Pedro, she was honored last year as one of San Pedro's Living Treasures. Preceded in death by her son Patrick and her husband Charles Thornton Wilder, Jean is survived by her sister Mary "Pebby" Tamburovich, her children Elisa Boyden (Albert), Fr. Frank Wilder, O.A.R., Nicholas Wilder (Dianna), Richard Wilder (Shari), and Michael Wilder (Gloria), and grandchildren Theodore, Patrick, Clarisse, Alex, Dylan, Maddax, and Damien. Her lively, quick-witted, fun personality will be missed by all. Visitation will be held Thursday, July 31, from 4 - 8:00 pm at McNerney's Mortuary. Mass will be held at the USAF Chapel at Ft. MacArthur Friday, August 1, at 11:00 am, followed by burial at Green Hills Memorial Park. Guest Book may be signed at mcnerneysmortuary.com.
