Norma Jeanne Adrian (Roseberry)

December 26, 1943 — March 16, 2024

Norma Jeanne Adrian (Roseberry), 80, died March 16, 2024, at UC Davis Hospital in Sacramento, California. She was born December 26, 1943, in French Camp, the daughter of Alfred and Helen Roseberry.

Jeanne graduated from Thomas Downey High School in 1961 in Modesto, California.  After graduation she moved to San Francisco and later to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she worked as a Systems Operations Manager in the phone company.  She was considered a pioneer in the industry, notably training staff to operate complex phone systems at the MGM Hotel, McCarran Airport, and Wayne Newton’s ranch. 

In addition to her parents, she was proceeded in death by her daughter, Stephanie Kramer. She is survived by her son, Jeffrey Kramer and his wife, Erin Chargin of Sacramento; three grandchildren, Caroline, Charlie, and Ellie Kramer, one brother Phillip Roseberry and his wife Suzie of Modesto, and two sisters, Phylis Hoffman (Roseberry) of Modesto, and Kandice Roseberry of Lawrenceville, Georgia; and many cherished nieces and nephews.

Jeanne loved growing up in Empire and Modesto. She enjoyed the life of living on a ranch, raising animals and especially training guide-dogs for competition. She became a talented landscape artist, and mastered oil-based painting and scratch art. She cherished her curio collection of turtles. 

Jeanne raised her two children in Las Vegas and provided a friendly loving community around them. In 1973, Jeanne was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The disease aggressively presented obstacles for her. Through courage and her faith in God she achieved her career aspirations and raised her children with the best qualities of herself.

Jeanne returned to Modesto in 1984 and became a regular parishioner at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. She held a school board position and supported the Inter Faith and Healing Ministries in the church. She later joined other parishioners in establishing Wellspring Anglican Church.  

Jeanne (AKA Mimi) moved to Sacramento in 2019 to live closer to her son and daughter in-law and her three grandchildren. Mimi often attended each of their school and church activities, theater performances, and baseball or soccer games. She cherished being a grandmother and her grandchildren filled her heart with pure joy and love.

A funeral service will be held Thursday, May 23, 2024, at 2:30 p.m. at the Wellspring Anglican Church, 1540 Cummins Dr., Modesto. Those who wish to remember her, in leu of flowers, may make a gift to the Stephanie L. Kramer Memorial Scholarship at Stanislaus State, One University Circle Turlock, CA 95382 – MSR 300.
