Raejean Louise Widmer (65) resident of Harrison, ID passed away at her home on July 27, 2019. She was born to Earl E. Hancock and Darlene R. Enzler on September 8, 1953 in Spokane, WA. Raejean grew up in Spokane and graduated from Ferris High School with the class of 1971.
Following high school, Raejean held a few different jobs and raised her daughter Candy. In 1980 she met Jerry Widmer when they were working at IML Transportation. Jerry was a truck driver, and Raejean worked in the billing office. They married in 1983, and have spent 36 very happy years together. Raejean worked for a few different freight companies before she went to work at Guardian Insurance Company. She found her niche as a medical coder and biller. In 1992 the couple moved to Harrison, ID. For 3 years Raejean commuted to Spokane for work; however the long hours and drive became too much for her, so she went to work as a receptionist for St. Maries Family Medicine. A medical billing and coding position came up at Valley Vista Care Center, so she applied and obtained that position. She worked this position for years before becoming a social services worker for Valley Vista. She spent 15 years at Valley Vista, and just retired within this last year.
Raejean enjoyed life! She liked gardening, crochet, and sewing. Jerry and Raejean at one time were members of St. Joe Valley Car Club, Hudson Car Club, and Idaho Goldwing Motor Cycle Club Chapter H. In her earlier days, she enjoyed her horses and trail riding. She loved and was devoted to her family and her cats. She loved helping people, and she shined her light on the world whenever she could. She also had a fun and playful sense of humor that would make her eyes sparkle. Raejean will be remembered most as a very friendly, loving, giving and generous person.
Raejean is survived by her husband Jerry at their home in Harrison; daughter Candy (Blair) Thomen of Spokane, WA; step-daughter Suzette (Darin) Milliken of Spokane, WA; and 1 grandson. She is preceded in death by her parents.
A celebration of Raejean’s life will be held at a later date.
