Obituary: Dana M. Jobs

d. Oct. 21, 2023

At the age of 83, Dana Marion Jobs (Dunbar) of Milwaukee died on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2023, surrounded by loved ones, both 2 legged and 4 legged in the home of her son and daughter in law, in Sturgeon Bay.

She cared deeply for all animals large and small.  She donated to causes for cats and dogs but was also mindful to catch and release the stray ladybug that made it into her home in the fall. She was always in the middle of a good mystery and will be missed by the wonderful librarians at the Brown Deer Library.  She enjoyed sewing and donated her time making items for the homeless.

She is survived by her four children, Edward, Russell, Lee (Cari) and Jennifer Dedrick; beloved pets, Lily and Cooper; her grandchildren, Amanda (Ryan), Eric (Lauren), Jessica, Jacqueline (Tony), Courtney, Buck (Ellie); Collin and Jack; many great grandchildren; her two nephews, Jeffrey (Mary) Dunbar and Roger (Geri) Dunbar; and other family and friends.  She was preceded in death by her husbands, LeRoy Jobs and Kenneth Beck; brother and sister in law, Wayne and Pat Dunbar.

A celebration of life will take place privately with family and friends.  Forbes Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay is assisting the family. On-line condolences may be offered at           

A huge heartfelt thank you to the staff of Compassus, especially to Megan, Hospice CNA, for the care and guidance you provided.
