Jeanette Alumbaugh

February 28, 2023

Jeanette “Jean” (Kern) Alumbaugh, 91, died February 28.

Jean was born on September 28, 1931 in St. Louis, Missouri to Samuel Elmer and Margaret Josephine (McMillan) Kern. She married Richard “Dick” Alumbaugh in Wichita, Kansas on April 14, 1951. He preceded her in death.

Their four children are Lynna Alumbaugh of Springfield, Mo., Jeannine Stults (Randy) of Newton, Kathleen Havens (James) of Olathe, Ks, and Gary Alumbaugh (Jeanenne) of Newton. Jean also leaves nine grandchildren; Kelcey Church, Maleena and Kalane Alumbaugh, Heather Stults-Lindsay (Chad), Gabriel Stults (Sheila), Garrett Stults, Richard Havens (Haley), James Havens (Calley) and Nichalous (Emily) Alumbaugh.

Jean is also survived by ten great-grandchildren; Catherine Field, Alex Lindsay, Zachery, Jonathon and Abigail Stults, Natalie Church, June Stults, Logen Havens, Sophia and Nathaniel Alumbaugh.

She was preceded in death by seven sisters and three brothers. Also by two grandsons; Brandon Church and Nathaniel Alumbaugh.

Jean was a charter member of Trinity Heights United Methodist Church. Traveling was a large part of her life. She enjoyed camping, boating and skiing trips with her family. Family trips took them to many locations across the country. It continued with Jean and Dick visiting all fifty states, most of them in their RVs.

The family suggests memorial contributions to Trinity Heights United Methodist Church or Caring Hands Humane Society.

Private family service will be held.

  1. Knowing she is free from physical constraints and in loving company gives me solace at this sad time. I will miss our conversations and her laughter. I cherish memories of wonderfully happy times with her and Uncle Dick….camping, water skiing, and their stay at my farm in Virginia. Thank you Kathleen, Jeanine, Lynna, and Gary for ensuring that her (and Uncle Dick’s) last years here were under the best care!

  2. Jean & Dick were wonderful friends,& we have happy memories of times spent together. We will miss them. The family are in our thoughts& prayers.
