Jean M. Kayser, 61, of Camp Hill, passed away on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at ManorCare Health Services in Towson, MD. She was born on Monday, April 18, 1949, in Algona, Iowa, a daughter of Martha C. (Thilges) Kayser of St. Joseph, IA and the late Herbert J. Kayser.

Jean graduated from Bishop Garrigan High School in Algona, IA and earned her Bachelors degree in teaching from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. She taught French and Spanish for several years in Emmetsburg, IA and later on worked for the Cargill Company in Minneapolis, MN for 23 years. After being relocated to the Camp Hill area with Cargill, Jean became a licensed dealer with the Butter Braid products and started the Freckled Moose Fundraising, which she owned and operated for the past 10 years in Camp Hill. Jean also had a vested interest in Nutri-Innovations LLC in Rogers, Minnesota. Jean was of Catholic faith.

In addition to her mother, she is survived by five brothers; Peter Kayser of St. Joseph, IA, William Kayser of Sioux Falls, SD, Jerome Kayser of Humbolt, IA, Howard Kayser of West Bend, IA and Richard Kayser also of West Bend and many nieces and nephews.

To all who mourn the loss of Jean M. Kayser- my sincerest condolences and sympathies.

Rev. Dwight Schlaline
Exercise walks with Jean around our Countryside neighborhood. From politics to changing the world to her stories of experiences with family and friends. Her mother, brothers and the twins back home. Zoe and family here. And her kindness in thinking of others. Acquiring and sharing blueberries from Chester in the summer. Offering wise gardening advice (always the farmer). Her independent and entrepreneur spirit. Her hard work and diligence. Her friendship. These are the things that I miss about dear Jean. Her passing came all so quickly. A reminder that God can call any of us home at anytime.

My sincere sympathy to her family and circle of friends.

Rest well, my friend.
