Jeanne Claire (Tambornino) Forster

Jeanne Claire (Tambornino) Forster, age 78, of Woodstock, New York passed away peacefully at home on April 10, 2018. 

Born to Robert & Katherine Tambornino, March 1, 1940 in Navarre, Minnesota.

Preceded in death by her husband, Jon Forster and brothers, Terry, Joseph & Paul. 


Jeanne was adored by everyone who had the good fortune to know her. She was an amazing seamstress and teacher. Her weekend bake shop on Tinker Street always had standing orders for her breads and pies. Her candy was a family favorite. 

She also was known as the owner of Woodstock Real Estate and could be seen in the  little real estate building  most days of the week. 

Jeanne had a heart as wide as the sky, and it was her way to be gentle and kind to all  whether you were a client, friend or family.

Jeanne is loved and missed  by her children, Liza Forster (Newbury Park, Ca.) and Lauren Motta (Mike)Briarcliff, NY, grandchildren, Gilda, Sam, Wyeth and Max, brother, John (Eve) and sister, Mary Tambornino (Ronald Usem) and many nieces and nephews.

Jeanne’s infectious laugh and sense of humor will be sorely missed by her family. 

Jeanne and Jon will be celebrated in a private family gathering.
