Jeanne B. Tappan Obituary
August 22, 1925 - December 28, 2016 Jeanne Boone Tappan lived a wonderful life. Born in Kansas in 1925, she grew up with her brother, Dr. George N. Boone, and sister, Mary Boone Roberts. Her family moved to Pasadena, California, in 1930. While at a summer camp, at the age of fifteen, she met the love of her life, David S. Tappan, Jr. After attending Occidental College, Jeanne and Dave were married in Chicago in 1944. Jeanne was many things: a fabulous cook, hostess and world traveler. But most importantly, she was a dedicated wife and mother, who adored her husband, five children, thirteen grandchildren, and twenty-two great-grandchildren. As was her wish, Mom died peacefully in her home, on December 28, 2016, in the presence of loved ones. Jeanne's children, Dr. David Tappan (Claudia), Janet Dryden (Bob), Diane Easton (Rich), Connie Clancy (Ed), and Steve Tappan (Cathy), are at peace knowing Mom has joined Dad for eternity, and we are forever grateful for the legacy of love Mom and Dad left us.
