Jeanene Kay (Shimp) Sigl , 60, of Hood River, Oregon, passed away unexpectedly on July 3, 2020 at Providence Portland Medical Center with family by her side. She was the first born child to parents Larry and Pauline (Shefstad) Shimp, on May 2, 1960 in The Dalles, Oregon.

Jeanene graduated from The Dalles High School in 1978. She worked at The Dalles Safeway and Heidi’s on the heights in Hood River prior to starting an in-home daycare where she cared for many children as if they were her own. In 1999, she began her career as a Rural Letter Carrier for the United States Postal Service. During this time, she formed lifelong bonds with many of the families on her route. She enjoyed seeing their smiles, saying a quick hello, and then a wave goodbye. She also formed many friendships with her coworkers during this time and enjoyed serving as the unions secretary/treasurer for many years.

Jeanene met Max L Sigl in 1981. They were married on May 7, 1983 in The Dalles, Oregon and quickly moved into their home in Hood River where they would raise their three daughters: Amanda, Katelyn, and Tharen. She loved having views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams and two giant weeping willow trees that held tree forts and rope swings.

She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren, socializing with friends, picking huckleberries, watching old western movies, snowmobiling at Lost Lake, driving backcountry roads searching for wildlife, and family camping trips. Most recently, she loved shopping for her seven grandbabies, she would start Christmas shopping in the spring and brag all year long about the treasures she had found for them.

Jeanene is survived by her husband of 37 years, Max L Sigl; daughter, Amanda (Sigl) Prine and husband Michael; daughter, Katelyn (Sigl) Logan and husband John; daughter, Tharen (Sigl) Sanchez and husband Saul. Grandchildren: Javier Sanchez (11), Wyatt Prine (10), Emilia Logan (8), Gunnar Prine (6), John Henry Logan (4), Julian Sanchez (2), and Jameson Prine (1). Brother, Todd Shimp; sister, Vonnie (Shimp) Long; 4 sister-in-laws; 4 brother-in-laws; 8 nieces, and 8 nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Larry and Pauline (Shefstad) Shimp; grandparents Harold “Dode” and Ethel (Mulkey) Shimp, and Melvin and Fern (Halvorson) Shefstad.

She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be dearly missed by many.

A celebration of life for close friends and family will be scheduled in the near future.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made out to the West Side Fire Department C/O (Anderson's Tribute Center, 1401 Belmont Avenue, Hood River, Oregon 97031.)

I remember her laugh the most and smile, and the real stories she would tell about
Everyone when we would go camping, she didn't leave out any real good details, if you know what I mean.
