Obituary – Jean Frances (Warner) Carrillo

Jean Frances (Warner) Carrillo
May 11, 1936 – June 5, 2021

Jean Frances (Warner) Carrillo, age 85, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus, on June 5, 2021, in Oceanside, CA. She was born May 11, 1936 to Glenn and Aneta (Schaldach) Warner in La Crosse, WI.  She was baptized and confirmed at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, Chaseburg, WI and attended high school at Viroqua High School, Viroqua, WI.

She married Ordel Foss in 1953 and had three sons. After his passing, she married (1964-1984) Manuel Carrillo and had two daughters. The family lived in various countries and states, including Spain, Azores, Arizona and California.

Jean retired from her position as a secretary in the Flight Simulator group at Camp Pendleton after many years of civil service.

Jean lived a full life as a loving mother and friend. She had many talents including, playing guitar, piano, accordion, singing and dancing (her favorite TV show was The Lawrence Welk show), painting with oil paints and crocheting. She had two green thumbs and could grow just about anything, including her own pineapples!  She always served others with an open heart and never missed sending a birthday card.

She was a member of Beautiful Saviour WELS Church, the Ladies Guild, Elks Lodge, American Legion and the Peacock Hills Tailfeathers.  She loved being able to support the Lutheran Day and High Schools in her area.

She is survived by her five children and their spouses, Larry, Levern, Lonnie, Linda and Lori; five grandchildren, four great-grandchildren. She is also survived by a brother, two nephews and a niece.  She is preceded in death by her mother, father and two brothers.

Jean will be missed tremendously by all who knew her, but we know she’s singing and dancing in heaven.  By God’s grace we will see her again one day!
