Tate, Jean

Oct. 9, 1923 — Jan. 27, 2014

Jean Rosemary Langer Tate died peacefully at 12:35 a.m. on Jan. 27, 2014, in Davis, with family at her bedside.

She was born in London on Oct. 9, 1923. After serving in the Women’s Royal Naval Service (“the Wrens”) in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, and the Royal Marines during World War II, Jean emigrated to the US in 1956. She married John “Jack” Tate, of Yorkshire, England, in 1963. Together, Jack and Jean ran John Tate Inc., a successful diesel technology manufacturing concern until Jack’s death in 1985. Prior residences before moving to Davis 25 years ago include San Francisco, Sausalito, Belvedere and Sonoma.

Jean was known for her sense of humor and wit, as well as her profound love of people and animals. She is also on record for having made the world’s best plum pudding.

She is survived by her brother Air Commodore John Langer of Filkins, England; sisters Valerie E. Davies of Auckland, New Zealand, and Carroll Terra of Davis; nephews Hilary Langer of Philadelphia, Marcus Langer of Newton Abbot, England, and Jonathan Terra of Prague; and nieces Karen Langer of London, Robin Terra of San Francisco and Jennifer Terra of Davis. Jean will be sorely missed by all.

A memorial gathering will be held 3-7 p.m. on Friday, January 31st at 2829 Ganges Ave in Davis. Remembrances will be read at 5 p.m. All friends are welcome to attend.
