Jerelene Marie Rumbaugh and Ronald Keith Rumbaugh
Jerelene died on Sept. 11, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ronald Keith Rumbaugh, July 15, 2021.
Jerelene Marie Rumbaugh was born in Omaha on November 1, 1950 to Jeremiah Gill and Eileen Anderson Gill. Ronald Keith Rumbaugh was born in Omaha on March 5, 1950 to Eldon Rumbaugh and Virginia DiBernardo Rumbaugh.
Ron and Jere were high school sweethearts who were married in the spring of 1969. Ron worked at Control Data Corporation while they raised their sons, Ron and Gregg. In 1984 they moved their young family to Colorado for Ron’s job in computer manufacturing. In 1986 they moved to Utah, and in 1988 they moved again and settled in Moorpark, California. Jere worked in medical offices as a receptionist. Ron had a love of computers, electronics, wrestling, and woodworking and Jere crocheted and was an avid reader. Ron’s and Jere’s marriage was full of joy, and they were always making each other laugh. They had a great love of family, the Colorado mountains, and California. When Jere was diagnosed with MS, Ron lovingly cared for her and was always by her side. In 2005 Ron and Jere retired and moved to Colorado to be near Gregg’s family. And in 2010 they moved back to Omaha to be close to family.
Ron and Jere are survived by their sons, Ronald (Brenda) of Mission Viejo, CA and Gregory (Lydia) of Denver, CO; five grandchildren: Taylor (Dylan), Benjamin, Sydnee (Dylan), Virginia, and Ryder. They are also survived by their sister, MaryAnn Vieregger (Henry), and three sisters-in-law: Diane Gill, Irene Gill, and Cheryl Rumbaug; many nieces and nephews.
