Burull, Jeanne Rowley

CHASEBURG - Jeanne Rowley Burull, 86, of Chaseburg, died peacefully at home Tuesday morning, Feb. 9, 2021. She was born Jeanne Ann Rowley, Jan. 16, 1935, to Lloyd and Minnie Rowley, in Stoughton, Wis., the second of their three children. A loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, Jeanne was a blessing to many people and loved God. She gave 100%-plus to whatever or whoever she turned her mind and heart to and was blessed with a good sense of humor.

A graduate of Stoughton High School, she married J. Robert Burull in 1955. Together, they raised two daughters, Ruth and Erica. As energetic communications entrepreneurs, Bob and Jeanne worked together in academic and corporate business settings, where Jeanne's managerial and business skills were greatly appreciated. Jeanne also earned her pilot's license to fly with her husband. After her children were grown, she completed her Ph.D. in communications. She and Robert are listed in The Cable Center's Hall of Fame (Denver, Colo.), due to their groundbreaking work with local origination television in the early 1970s. Most recently, she worked with Robert on the "Ol' Bob Show" through Vernon Communications in Westby, Wis.

A gifted musician, Jeanne played the piano, flute and violin, accompanied many musicians, and was a published composer and member of SAI, an international composers association. She loved creating music for her grandchildren. Most recently, she worked with her family on homeschool music events and classes, and also played the piano for Norseland Nursing Home devotion services.

She was an avid poetry and literature buff, writer, an artist, genealogist and naturalist. She put together books about her interests. She loved horses and hobby farms and always felt children needed a place to run.

She enjoyed her relationships with her family, friends, and neighbors. She loved the Lord Jesus and His Word, and taught her family the value of forgiveness. She was in fellowship with her family at Grace and Truth Bible Chapel, Westby, Wis. She was blessed also by her association with Good Shepherd by the Lake Church in Stoughton, Wis. She is survived by her husband, Robert; daughters, Ruth Burull Dreher and Erica Araneta; son-in-law, Eric Araneta; and grandchildren, Paul and Sarah Dreher, and Zayda and Anna Araneta; nieces, Carol Rowley and Ruth (Mark) Valgamae; brother, Lloyd Rowley (Sandra); nephews, Jeffrey and David Rowley; niece, Julie Rowley; and cousin, Margaret Mary Novak. She was preceded in death by her brother, John Rowley; and sister-in-law, Virginia Rowley. The family extends their gratitude to all those who have helped in this time of need.
