CAFFREY - Jean M. It is with great sadness that the family of Jean M. Caffrey announces her passing on July 25, 2018. Surrounded by family, Jean, a retired U.S. Air Force Captain and Vietnam War Nurse, passed away peacefully after a long, courageous battle with rheumatoid arthritis and a sudden heart complication. Jean was a loving sister, an aunt, grand-aunt and beloved friend to many.

She spent much of her career as a nursing instructor at the former Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital, inspiring hundreds of future nurses. Jean is survived by her sister, Clare M. Schultz; she was the aunt of Robert (Krista) Schultz, Lorey Schultz (Thomas) Garlick, David Schultz, Jennifer (Albert) Russell and the grand-aunt of Zac, Grace, Jacob, Hannah and Mari.
