Jean M. Harbor, 76, Neenah, was called to her eternal home on November 26, 2020. She was born on December 30, 1943, in Antigo, the daughter of Peter and Louise Selenske. Jean was raised on the Selenske family farm and spent her younger years caring for her siblings – doing endless loads of laundry and preparing meals. After graduating from Antigo High School Jean made her way to Appleton where she was introduced to the love of her life, Corbett Harbor. She was united in marriage to Corbett on June 8, 1963, in Antigo, and they shared 53 wonderful years together, until Corbett’s passing in 2017. Jean was a loving mother who took wonderful care of her family. One of her favorite pastimes was dancing the waltz and polka with Corbett. When the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis prevented her from dancing she enjoyed watching others on Polka, Polka, Polka! Jean’s faith was strong and was member of Peace Lutheran Church, Neenah.
Jean is survived by her children: Nancy (Kurt) Jenicek, Melisa Triggiano, and Corbett G. (Letha) Harbor; grandchildren: Boone (fiancé Kayla Suwyn) Parks, Marisa Triggiano, Kaleb, Nikolaas, and Noah Sobey; brothers Ronald Selenske, Robert (Cindy) Selenske and William Selenske and sisters Bonnie Rasmussen and Betty Hetto; brother-in-law Gregory G. (Pat) Harbor and several extended family members and friends. Jean was preceded in death by her husband Corbett, her parents, in-laws Willard and Milldred Harbor, brothers Andrew, Richard and Charles Selenske, sister-in-law Judy Selenske, and brother-in-law Daryl Rasmussen.
