Jeannie was born July 2, 1949 in Mandan to Matt and Magdalyn (Wirtz) Johner.  She graduated from Mandan High School and NDSU.  In 1987 she married Donald Ulrich.  In 1992 they moved north of Mandan along the Square Butte Creek.  Don and Jeannie developed and landscaped this piece of property in their spare time and planted large gardens each summer.  They lived there until the flood of 2011 and with heavy hearts, they decided to move back into Mandan. Jeannie worked for an optometrist and later as a claims analyst for the State of ND.  In her free time Jeannie loved gardening and tending to her flower beds.  She and Don enjoyed doing home improvement projects.  She had a very special place in her heart for her adopted dog, Ebony.
