Jeanne Dabb Romero

November 9, 1944 - March 8, 2016

Jeanne passed away peacefully on March 8, 2016 in Ogden, Utah surrounded by family.  She was born November 9, 1944 in Sacramento, California to Earl and Donna Dabb.  She later moved to Ogden, Utah where she spent her life.


Jeanne was a loving mother to her children, her son, Milo Pettingill and daughter, Paige Pettingill Hamblin and Paige’s husband, Shawn.  Jeanne also adored her four grandchildren.


Jeanne immensely enjoyed the crisp fresh air of the back country and beauty of mountain scenery.  She had a love for gardening, fishing and ranching, particularly having a soft spot for her ornery turkey, Turkey-lurk.  She was one to enjoy the challenge of a good crossword puzzle as well.


Jeanne often proudly boasted that she had been a member of the Klunker Klub Motorcycle Club, The Utah Trail and Endurance Riders and the Ogden singles group.


Jeanne graduated from Ben Lomond High School and attended Weber State University.  She was employed as a Logistics Foreman for Defense Depot Ogden for 25 years before retiring.


Jeanne is survived by her two children, Milo and Paige; sister, Dianne Roylance and four grandchildren.


She is preceded in death by her parents.


The family would like to extend a special thanks to Envision Hospice Care and the staff of Crestwood Care facility.


It was Jeanne’s wish to forgo services and wished only for those who knew and loved her to cherish the fond memories they shared with her and celebrate the time they spent.


Cremation under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.

Diane, It has been so many years since I have seen Jeanne. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I would love to see you but have no contact number. Love Cheryl

Paige, My heart is broken thinking about your mom. It has been years since I have seen her, I have always loved her. She was so funny and she defiantly lived her life her way. I will never forget her or her kindness towards me. Hell, I practically lived at your house during my teenage years. I remember her teasing me, "are you ever going to go home?" Like I said before, she was the yin to my yang mom. Total opposite of my own mother and that's what I loved most about her. She was a free spirit. RIP Jeanne. I love you Paige!

Sorry to hear about Jeanne's passing. Dave posted it in the Ben Lomond High School page. I was able to talk to Jeanne a couple of years ago and have talked to Shawn at the McKay Dee a couple of months ago about her. I remember you and Jeanne when we were very young, You Mother and Father were always favorite cousins and we loved visiting them. Our deepest sympathy, Sam and Shari VanderHeide
