MADISON-Jeanne M. (DuPuis) von Allmen, age 85, passed away peacefully early on April 18, 2017, the dawning of a new day of her eternal life.
She was born in Baraboo, on Aug. 5, 1931, a twin daughter of Edmund J. and Eleanor DuPuis. Following her mother's early death, Jeanne was raised by her father, and the only mother she ever knew, Alice J. (Moyes) DuPuis.
Jeanne grew up in Baraboo with her three sisters and five brothers. After graduating from high school, she moved with two of her sisters to Madison. They enjoyed living and working in Madison in the early 1950s. There, she met Paul von Allmen, and they married on Sept. 11, 1954. He preceded her in death in 2013.
Jeanne was an accomplished homemaker, cook, baker and seamstress. She and Paul hosted numerous family parties over the years. Most recently, Jeanne was a resident of Nazareth Health and Rehabilitation Center in Stoughton, where she enjoyed many family lunches, especially those with Joanne, Kathy, and Nola.
Jeanne is survived by her son, Gary (Mary Kay) and daughter, Karen (Joe) Hoff, all of Lake Ozark, Mo. She is further survived by two sisters, Mary (Ray) Dunwell of Texas; and Joanne (James) Lottes of Lake Mills; two brothers, Duane (Gwen) Kraemer of Plain and David (Jeanne) DuPuis of Eau Claire; and three generations of nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her sister, Patricia; and three brothers, Eddie, LaVern and Rollie.
