Jean Concetta Seck passed away on Wednesday the 7th day of April, 2021 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN. She was born on July 30, 1937 in Atlantic City, NJ to Lawrence & Eleanor (Merrill) Whoy.
Jean grew up in the Atlantic City, NJ area. She graduated from Atlantic City High School in 1956. Shortly after high school she met Harlan Seck from Cologne, MN. Harlan was stationed in the US Navy in Atlantic City. They met on a blind date at a roller rink. They married on June 6, 1957 while Harlan was still serving in the Navy. They were happily married for 59+ years. Jean adored her husband, family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jean always enjoyed socializing and having fun with friends.
In 1959 after serving in the Navy, Jean, Harlan and their son, Edward, moved to the Chaska, MN area. For the most part Jean was a stay at home mom to son, Edward and daughter, Barbara. Jean worked part time at Hazeltine Golf & Country Club in the dining areas. She also did independent residential cleaning. Jean was a member of the Carver Fire Ladies while her husband, Harlan served as a Volunteer Fireman. But her first priority was her family & home.
In the fall of 2000 when Harlan retired from Amana, they moved to Luck, WI where the two of them enjoyed some lake time, meeting new friends, having old friends come to visit, traveling & spending time with family.
Jean is preceded in death by her husband Harlan, her parents, Lawrence & Eleanor Whoy, brothers Lawrence, Leon, Stanley, Albert & Robert.
