Obituary for Jean Marie Wacker

Jean Marie Dady Wacker passed away May 8, 2019 at age 89 after a long illness. Jean was a devoted wife, and loving mother and grandmother.

Jean was born November 15, 1929 in Galveston to Edward and Mary Dady. Jean graduated from Ball High School in 1946.

On June 2, 1962 Jean married Harold Wacker. They had two children, Mary Ann and Paul Andrew.

Jean had a wonderful quick wit and sparkling sense of humor and loved to laugh. When she was a little girl, she and her mother were inseparable, strolling the streets of Galveston and working together in the family’s grocery store. Jean relocated to Houston as a young woman where she began work as a secretary at Welex. She and her co-workers developed lifelong friendships, and she had a special lifelong relationship with one co-worker in particular, Harold. Jean and Harold were the happiest of couples and did everything together. They loved country drives and exploring the backroads of Texas, tending the vegetable garden, reading the newspaper, and cheering on the Astros.

Jean was particularly proud of her family’s Irish heritage and was a faithful Catholic.

She was employed as an insurance adjustor at several Houston agencies in the 70’s and 80’s.

Jean spent the last years of her life at Cambridge Health & Rehabilitation Center in Richmond, Texas. Many thanks from the family to all her caregivers there, and the love and friendship they provided.

Jean is preceded in death by her husband, Harold; as well as her parents, Mary McGinnis Dady and Edward Dady; brothers, Bill Dady and Jack Dady. She is survived by daughter, Mary Ann Wacker; son, Paul Wacker and wife Sheila; grandchildren, Kaitlyn Wacker and Casey Wacker.

A Funeral Mass will be held Monday, May 13, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, 9900 Stella Link Road, Houston, Texas 77025. A Graveside Service to follow in procession to South Park Cemetery, 1310 N. Main St. Pearland, Texas 77581.
