MADISON - Jeane Buggy (Regina Maria Barry) passed away surrounded by her family at Agrace Hospice on July 11, 2021. She was born on Sept. 8, 1930, to Joseph and Florence (McGovern) Barry, the fifth of six children. She was a proud south side Chicago girl who married a north side Chicago boy who had returned from World War II. Jeane and John were married 59 years until his passing in 2010. It was a marriage of deep love and devotion.
Jeane loved her five children, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren with all her heart and soul. After raising her children, she worked in data entry at UW-Madison and later for Gimbels/Marshall Fields. During retirement, she and John traveled extensively and enjoyed time with their grandchildren.
She is survived by her children, Jack (Mitzi) of Cross Plains, Michael (Monika) of La Crosse, Patrick (Kim) of Haymarket, Va., Kathleen (Rick) Schoepp of Waunakee and Susan (Pat) Connors of Timnath, Colo.; grandchildren, Katlyn Buggy, Sara (Shane) Sungkapan, John Buggy, Lily Buggy, Hunter Schoepp, Cole Schoepp, Kyle Connors and Will Connors; great-grandchildren, Ethan, Max and Logan Sungkapan; dear sister-in-law, Nancy Buggy; and many nieces and nephews.
