Jundt Hay, Lorean Marie (nee Ruhl)

June 22, 1937 - September 1, 2023


Rose to the Heavens on Friday September 1, 2023 at the age 0f 86.

You can look for me in the evening sunset or with the earliest spring daffodils or among the chirping cardinal birds. I’ll be there in one form or another.

In honor of my passion for gardening I encourage you to plant something in lieu of flowers in your garden.

  1. Our family was so lucky to have my Aunt in our life. She made everyone seem special to her! What a beautiful soul she had!! Lots of laughs and wonderful talks. Our memories of growing up with her girls my cousins are treasured moments that are forever in my heart! You are loved and will be missed! Love you forever and ever!!

  2. On Friday, September 1st, the world lost the most amazing woman. My grandma, my mawmaw, my biggest fan.
    If you knew her, you know how just walking into the room, she made you smile.
    Throughout life I remember the laughs, the smiles, the joy she always had. She was always such a positive, upbeat woman. When I needed a pick me up, I would call her. When I needed a laugh, I would call her. When I needed help on schoolwork, I would call her. No matter what was happening in my life, I could call her. She was there for me. She was there for anybody that needed her.
    The memories I have of her from my entire life will always be remembered. From watching and cracking up at home videos with her during my many surgeries, me and her being the last ones standing on my 21st birthday, her telling me VERY inappropriate stories of her youth, her hilarious response to my engagement, and best of all, the smile that came on her face when she met both of my baby boys.
    She may be gone, but she will never be forgotten. She truly is the definition of “unforgettable.”

    Mawmaw, I love you with all my heart. Always and forever. ❤️

    “Grandmothers are many things: a friend, a storyteller, and a sharp mouth who can get away with saying anything she pleases. A source of wisdom, a confidant, and someone who will give it to you straight. She loves beyond faults, to a fault”

  3. We are so sorry to hear of Lorean’s passing. She was a sweet, caring neighbor! I’m going to miss all her beautiful flowers in her yard. We are in New Hampshire this week but we will keep Lorean in our thoughts and prayers, as well as her family.

  4. I am sorry to hear of our neighbor Lorean’s passing. I too will miss her beautiful flowers and whimsical seasonal decorations. My prayers for her family.

  5. Sorry that God took away what sounds like a wonderful woman. I didn’t know her but I remember going to Rusty’s wake. My dad was Elmar Ruhl.
