Jean Dusek Wolter
Nov 8, 1938 - Apr 10, 2021
Jean Dusek Wolter entered peacefully into eternal life with our Savior at her home on Saturday, the 10th of April, 2021. Born November 8, 1938, in Lillian, Alabama, she was the daughter of Joe and Julia Dusek and sister to Janas Dusek Connley and Joe Dusek. She attended Foley High School and Pensacola State College. Jean met her lifelong partner, Gary B. Wolter in Pensacola, and it was there they entered into Holy Matrimony November 4, 1960. Their union was blessed with two children: Gary Michael Wolter and Suzanne Wolter Carnaggio. She and Gary loved to travel and, quite literally, saw the world together. They found their personal slice of paradise on the bay which they happily shared with family and friends. Her love for gardening was evident by her blooming displays of color throughout her home and yard. Jean was a talented cook which, along with her warm hospitality, created cherished memories of gatherings for so many both at home in Birmingham and on the bay. Jean is remembered for many things; perhaps most for her cheerfulness and sheer joy in life. She was generous with her kindness and greeted all with a beaming smile that could turn anyone’s day around. She always lived in the moment, her positivity and easygoing personality forming the foundation of a genuinely happy family. If daily life presented some challenge or annoyance, Jean was known to say with a laugh "Well, that's a doozie to do on a day like today”, an expression lovingly remembered by her family. Jean is survived by her loving husband of 61 years Gary, daughter Suzanne (Joe), daughter-in-law Laura, grandchildren Courtney, Michael, Hannah, Julia and Joey to whom she will always be affectionately remembered as 'Grandma”, and her beloved dog Kona. She is predeceased by her parents, Joe and Julia Dusek, brother Joe Dusek, and son Gary Michael Wolter. Jean's life is one to be celebrated as she enters into God's loving embrace. She touched the lives of many and, while she will be dearly missed, her legacy and memories will live on among family and all that knew her.
