Jeanette “Ma” Oman, age 87, of Escanaba passed away on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at the Christian Park Health Care Center in Escanaba.
Jeanette was one of eight children born to Antoine and Eileen Deloria of Nahma, Michigan. Jeanette married Wilbur Oman of Rapid River, Michigan.
Jeanette is survived by three children, William Oman, Richard Oman and Toni (Ernie) Winslow as well as one granddaughter, Kathrine Oman.
She was widowed in 1969 and made the transition from stay-at-home mother to businessperson when she started a successful cleaning service of which she was rightfully proud.
Her latter years were spent at the Christian Park Health Care Center in Escanaba where she came to be known as “Scooter” for her late night wheelchair trips for a cup of coffee or to distribute some hugs.
Jeanette was a sometimes sassy and always loving person. She was known to many as “Ma” for the friendship and care she gave to the people in her life.
A memorial service will be scheduled later in the year when it is safe to travel and gather.
