Jeanne Wolf Evers Obituary
October 12, 1928 - October 4, 2017 Long-term resident of Lakewood, California, Jeanne Wolf Evers (née Sulenski), died Wednesday 5th October 2017, age 88, in Seal Beach, California, while suffering from dementia. Jeanne was born Jeanne Marie Robinson on October 12, 1928 in Chicago to George Robinson and Florence Keane Robinson. Florence remarried Raymond Wolf who became the adoptive father to Jeanne and her brother Don. Jeanne graduated from Kelly High School in Chicago where she met and married Joseph Sulenski with whom she had three children. She spent many years as a military wife and mother and travelled extensively, living in Korea, Japan and Germany as well as across the United States. After 24 years of marriage, Jeanne and Joe divorced in 1969. Jeanne then received a degree from Long Beach State University and became a devoted teacher in Garden Grove. In 1982 she married Ace Evers who sadly passed away in 1993. Vivacious, fun and witty, Jeanne was a kind and caring mother, grandmother and great friend to many. She was incredibly knowledgeable and very entertaining. An excellent cook who enjoyed good food, Jeanne loved socialising and travel. Her many adventures included venturing to the bottom of the Grand Canyon on a mule, hot air ballooning and white water rafting. She had a great love for the sea and once kissed a baby gray whale! Jeanne was an extraordinary lady, very loving and very loved. She enriched our lives and will be sadly missed by all her friends and family. Jeanne was predeceased by her older brother Donald Wolf and younger half-brother George Robinson. Survivors include three sons: Jay Sulenski of Flagstaff, AZ, Jeff Sulenski of San Jose, CA, and Jonathan Sulenski of London, England; five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A private memorial service will be held by the family.
