Obituary

Jean Mellow Sjuggerud, 76, of Orlando, Florida passed away on June 6, 2020 due to complications from pancreatic cancer.

“Well Mom, you better get that bucket list out and get to work,” her son said the day she was diagnosed. “I filled my bucket a long time ago with your dad,” she replied. And it is true…

Born Beverly Jean Mellow in Orlando, Florida, Jean was raised here with her brother Ronald. She went to Boone High School, and she was a Delta Gamma at the University of Florida. She had a long working career as a teacher, guidance counselor, and real estate professional. After a few moves with the Navy, Dave and Jean settled back in Orlando for good to raise kids.

She met the love of her life David Sjuggerud when she was a schoolteacher in Jacksonville and he was a Navy test pilot. They married in France, and truly experienced much of the world together. Europe, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Iceland, Argentina, New Zealand, and more. They stayed happily married until Dave’s death, over 40 years later.

Jean loved spending time with her brother Ron and the entire extended Mellow family. She also dearly loved her childhood friends from Boone High School, who remained close friends for generations, until her final day. The list of close family and friends is wide… the extended Sjuggerud family, Navy friends, sorority friends, club friends, the list of people she touched goes on and on.

Jean is survived by her sons Stephen (Kathryn) and Michael (Jema), and her grandchildren Zackary and Delaney.

A small family service will be held at Arlington National Cemetery where Jean will be eternally reunited with her husband.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, a donation to the Dave & Jean Sjuggerud Memorial Scholarship Fund at http://cfdunncounty.org/give/donate/ is encouraged.


Jean's funeral arrangements are in the caring guidance of Winter Oak Funeral Home and Cremations,
1132 E. Plant St. Winter Garden, FL 34787

Jeannie was my dear longtime friend. I have so many fond memories of her. At age 12 she began her lifelong talent as a consummate hostess. Her parents willingly drove us to school and anywhere else we wanted to go. As we grew up, she continued to amaze her many friends again and again. Some of us returned to Orlando after graduating from college but she began an adventurous and fortuitous move to Jacksonville. Dave entered her life and they were off to see the world. And for the rest of his life, he continued to bring her sunshine.
All of us who knew and loved her will miss her.....the light of her sweet spirit will remain always.

Jean was a wonderful friend that I have known for 70 years. I was truly blessed to have known her. She was so caring and trustworthy that I could share anything with her and know she could be trusted. I miss her so much and just wish we would have had more time. She was so much fun and loved to make you laugh. I will always be grateful to her for taking care of me after my hip replacement surgery. She was a Godsend to me at that time. Love you Jean!

Jean's smile, humor and gentle being was ever present for her friends. We shared so many wonderful times together- trips to the mountains and beaches, shopping and lunches, celebrations and holidays. She was always present then and will always be whenever we gather. Our dearest friend, always in love.
