Dodgeville – E. Jean Aupperle, age 94, of Dodgeville, passed away on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, after a short illness.

Jean was born in Oxford, Michigan to Fred and Velma Streit on April 22, 1928. She grew up in Michigan with her brother John, and was the first out state student to attend the University of Platteville. She met her first husband, Dan, a WWII veteran while attending school and they were married in 1947. Dan and Jean had three children. Dan passed away in 1983, and Jean married Russell U’Ren in 1991. Russell passed away in 2007.

Jean had an adventurer’s heart and saw most of the United States, including Alaska and traveled to Mexico, Canada, Germany, and England. Always busy, she loved the outdoors, birds, gardening, little dogs, cooking, and was an avid reader. She never lost her thrill of life and is now on her next big adventure.

Jean was preceded in death by husbands Dan and Russell, brother John, sister-in-law Ethel Kemper and grandchildren, Joshua Aupperle and Nathaniel Baker.

She is survived by her three children, Dan (Lisa) Aupperle, Katie Aupperle and David (Shelly) Aupperle; her son-in-law Peter Baker; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Jean’s life will be held from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2023, at the GORGEN-McGINLEY & AYERS FUNERAL HOME in Dodgeville.
