Our beautiful Mother and Grandmother, Jacqueline Jean DePoe Schwarz Griffith passed away on February 17, 2020.

Jean was born in Port Angeles, Washington to Geraldine Dupuis and Reginald DePoe on October 1, 1929. She was a member of the Salish Kootenai Tribes. She graduated from Polson High School and attended one year of schooling at the University of Kansas.

Jean worked in several places in Polson throughout her lifetime: Jim’s Lunch, Prices, Telephone Company, Penny’s, Eddie’s Drug Store, Service Inc., Reum’s, and SKC college.

She was preceded in death by Norris’s parents, her daughter Sherry, stepdad Ray Fulkerson, sister Lorraine, and brothers Bob and Glen, and survived by her sons Bill & Michael, grandsons Jason (Dacee) & Adam (Jennifer), great grandsons Kailen, Shayden& Khyesin, sister Carol, brothers Doug & Bruce Fulkerson, and several nieces and nephews.
