Obituary for Mrs Jean Elizabeth / Strattan Noennick

May 10, 1950 - September 6, 2020
Discovery Bay, California | Age 70

Loving Wife, Mother and Nana


On September 6, 2020, Jean Noennick passed away at Stanford Hospital with her husband Gil and daughter Ashley by her side, holding her hands as she took her final breath.

Jean was born in Wilmington, NC on May 10, 1950 to parents Jean and William Strattan ( both deceased). She grew up in Millbrae, CA where she graduated from Capuchino High School and later attended the College of San Mateo. Jean was a resident of San Jose, CA for 43 years before moving to Discovery Bay, CA in 2016 to be closer to her daughter and family.

Jean worked in commercial real estate sales and marketing at Colliers International located in San Jose, CA for over 35 years until she retired in 2013. She became a grandmother for the first time in 2015 (Jackson) and again in 2018 to twins (Logan and Wyatt). In Jean's earlier years she loved water skiing, snow skiing, and creating stained glass. More recently, she enjoyed taking long walks, quilting, sewing, baking and spending time with her grandsons.

Jean bravely battled, and beat, her first cancer diagnosis in 2011 (Multiple Myeloma). Then in early 2019 Jean had to battle a second round of cancer brought on by the chemo treatment from the first. She was lucky enough to receive a bone marrow transplant in September 2019 and got to come home just in time to spend Christmas with her family that year. That amazing Christmas was spent baking cookies and dancing in the kitchen with her grandsons while singing along to Christmas songs. We will forever cherish this as our "bonus" Christmas with her!

Jean is survived by her loving husband of 49 years Gil Noennick, their daughter Ashley (Noennick) Marcelino, son-in-law Kyle Marcelino, three wonderful grandsons Jackson, Logan and Wyatt (the bright lights in Nana Jean's life), brother Gaar Strattan, Step-Mother Janis Strattan, and step-siblings Ginger Power (Pierce), Steven Hubbard (Kristy), and David Hubbard (Yasmin).
