Obituary for Jean Anne (Trubee) Koontz

Acton, MA

Jean Anne (Trubee) Koontz passed away peacefully on the morning of Monday, February 4, 2019. She resided in Acton, MA and was formerly of Walpole, MA and Elgin, IL. She also resided in St. Johns, FL for a short time.

Jean is survived by her loving husband, Robert G. “Bob” Koontz and her loving daughter Erin Bell and her husband Trevor along with their son Charlie, all of Acton, MA. She is also survived by her two sisters, Jacque Braninger of Indiana, Jayne Harcourt of Michigan and many loyal loving friends.

Jean was born in Cambridge, OH, daughter of the late Jack and Janet (Apter) Trubee. She was raised in Michigan City, IN where she attended local schools and was a graduate of Michigan City igh School. She later earned her nursing degree from the former Holy Cross School of Nursing in South Bend, IN. She began her long career as a nurse in 1977 at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, IL. In 1992 along with her husband Bob and daughter Erin, Jean left her nursing career and moved to Walpole, MA. Following her passion and love for books, she worked at a local bookstore and then took a position with the Walpole Public Library working in the Children’s Room until 2009. Jean and Bob moved to Florida in 2009 and in 2015 moved back to Massachusetts to be close to their daughter and future grandson.

Jean truly was blessed with many loving friends, who have become like family, throughout her life. She cherished the relationships she made through church, volunteering, work, and community organizations. Her radiant smile and servant’s heart will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
