Fritzen, Jean

Dec. 7, 1924 — Dec. 5, 2012

Jean Margaret Guild Fritzen entered into the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, in Tacoma, Wash.

Jean was born Dec. 7, 1924, in Minneapolis, Minn., to Ellis D. and Edith M. (Shaw) Guild, joining older sister Edith. After graduating from Ohio Wesleyan University, she married John S. Fritzen in Los Angeles in 1948. John and Jean raised four children (Marien, Kathryn, Margaret, and Fred) and helped raise two grandchildren (Tanya and Nathan). They moved in 1974 from North Hollywood to Sunnyvale for John’s job with Lockheed.

After John’s death in 1989, Jean moved to Davis in 1991, where she swam with the Davis Aquatic Masters and volunteered at the Gibson House in Woodland. She also became a vital member of Grace Valley Christian Center, a church whose ministry and members she loved and appreciated greatly. In 2002 Jean moved to Tacoma to be near her oldest daughter Marien and her family.

Jean is survived by her four children, Marien Johnson (Edward) of Auburn, Wash., Kathryn Fritzen of North Hollywood, Margaret Killeen (William) of Davis, and Frederick Fritzen (Joann) of Oak Park; 10 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law; several nephews and nieces; and many friends. Jean was much loved and is greatly missed.

Memorial services were held on Sunday, Dec. 9, at Grace Valley Christian Center in Davis and on Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Tacoma Lutheran Retirement Community, where she had lived since 2002.
