Jean Kaiser

KAISER, Jean D., 89, of Centennial, CO, formerly of Wheeling, WV and Venice, FL, passed away peacefully at her residence on January 29, 2014.

She was born on July 8, 1924, in Binghamton, NY, and was the daughter of the late Wilford H. Dodd and Helen Wilson Dodd Chapple, and stepdaughter to the late George Chapple.

Jean was a graduate of Brilliant, OH High School, where she excelled in music and piano. She attended Bethany College where she was a member of Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority and where she met the love of her life, the late Robert C. Kaiser. She was a devoted wife and mother to four children and while the career choice of raising a family quickly replaced youthful desires of becoming a concert pianist, Jean still made time outside the home establishing many friendships, volunteering at King’s Daughter and the Ohio Valley General Twig and golfing whenever possible at Wheeling CC and Jacaranda West CC.

Lebanon, PA; Katie Kaiser of Centennial, CO; Christopher and Justin (and their mother Lui Grohman Kaiser) and Collin Kaiser all of Hilton Head, SC; and great-grandchildren Ryan and Sara Anderson and Lukas Kaiser.
