Audrey Wecker

Aug. 12, 1933 — Dec. 6, 2013

Audrey Jenell Wecker, 80, of Shingle Springs, Calif., died Dec. 6, 2013, at Kaiser Hospital in Vacaville after surgery in October. Jen was born to Henry and Esther Stinchfield on Aug. 12, 1933, in Colusa, Calif. She is survived by her sons, Mark (wife Michelle), Paul (wife Kathy) and Craig (wife Renee). She was preceded in death by Keith, her firstborn; and Kyle, a grandson. She is also survived by six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Jenell, a Shingle Springs resident since the early 1960s, was involved in the community in a number of capacities over her more than 50 years in El Dorado County. She worked at local establishments, drove a bus for Buckeye School, delivered mail for a period and owned her own restaurant in Shingle Springs in the 1980s. She was an avid pool player, loved to cook, was an accomplished artist and even a barber to many friends and relatives over the years. She also loved movies, music and being with her family and is acknowledged as the No. 1 fan of the Pickups, a local rock ‘n roll band featuring her son, Paul. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

A celebration of Jenell’s life will take place at the Shingle Springs Community Center on Jan. 4, 2014 at 2 p.m., following a private family burial at the Frenchtown Cemetery.

    You touched so many lives in our county; memories of Kumar Corner, the SS Center, always a "giver"... I miss you Mom Jen! I will try to be like you when I grow up!

    Pioneer woman like Jen built our community from the ground up. She gave so much more than anyone could ever repay although her children inherited that spirit and continue to pass it along to others in their time. Jen Wecker didn't suffer fools lightly and was apt to give a well deserved kick in the rump as opposed to a meaningless pat on the back when you got out of line. She was about as real as real gets and embodied the true spirit of one tough lady with a golden heart.. I can attest to a few well deserved bumps myself. I will miss her and endeavor to straighten up and fly right for gods sake!

    Sean is absolutely right! Jen was as real as real gets! She always called 'em the way she seen 'em and rarely pulled any punches! I will miss a very dear friend. Wish I could be there for the celebration of her life but its just a bit too far away.

    Gramma Jen was instrumental to my marriage. From the time she allowed me to take her granddaughter on a date to filling our car with groceries every time we visited. She was tough but incredibly loving. The love, support and honesty she provided was rare and needed. She was independent and strong. We'll miss her but I know she is in a place where she is happy, and depends on no one. She is once again strong and happy. We love her and her impact on our lives will never fade.
