November 11, 1924 ~ July 23, 2018

Jean Gulde passed away on the 23rd of July, 2018 while at Windsor Gardens Memory Care, in Vancouver Washington, at the age of 93.

Jean was born in Portland, Oregon on November 11, 1924 to Kenneth and Gladys Frazer. After living in Portland for a time, the family moved to nearby Tigard and lived on a small piece of property in Garden Home. After graduating from Tigard High School in 1943, Jean went on to attend and graduate from Multnomah Junior College in 1945.

While working as a legal assistant in Portland, she met the love of her life, Glen Gulde. Soon thereafter, the two married and started their 70 years of a wonderful marriage. Jean devoted her life to their family, raising four children. She loved all of life's adventures, including camping, river rafting and skiing with family and friends. She expressed her artistic abilities by creating beautifully knitted coats, sweaters, hats and afghan/blankets. Her paintings and oil pastel drawings are proudly hung in her grown children's homes today. Jean also loved caring for her four beagles.

A devoted and loving wife and mother, Jean is survived by her husband, Glen Gulde; their four children: Stephen, Deborah, Michael and Jennifer; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and her sister, Dorothy Jones.

There will be a private family internment at Wilhelm's Portland Memorial.
