Her obituary was published in the Colorado Springs Gazette on January 21, 2006.1 Her obituary stated:
Jeanne Sinclaire Paulk, passed away peacefully in her sleep early Thursday, January 12, 2006 at the Porter Hospice in Centennial, Colorado. Jeanne was preceded in death by her beloved husband, John, her precious daughter, Jamie, her father, Reginald Sinclaire, and her mother, Ruth Morgan Sinclaire, as well as her brother, Morgan, whom she admired. Jeanne was born on August 19, 1919 in Corning, New York. Reginald Sinclaire moved his family to Colorado Springs in 1928 for the sake of his wife, Ruth who suffered from TB. They lived in Broadmoor where Jeanne and Morgan attended Cheyenne Mountain School along with former Governor, John Love, a life long friend. She finished her formal schooling at Bennet School in New York where she studied art and learned to ride horses. Growing up, Jeanne and Morgan spent their summers with their mother in Foxboro, Arizona with their Aunt Joe. The three of them also bravely embarked on several cross-country motorcar trips that took them from San Diego to New York, with stops in places such as Yellowstone and Wisconsin, Ruth's family's home. During the 30s Reginald purchased a ranch in Douglas County. Jeanne subsequently became associated with the Arapahoe Hunt, which had its headquarters north of Sedalia. It was an important part of her life for the next four decades and she earned the respect and admiration of a great many member of the Hunt. She became a member of the staff during World War II and was later joined by her husband and children who all enjoyed riding to the hounds. Jeanne served with the Red Cross during World War II at Peterson Air Field in Colorado Springs. It was there that she met John Paulk, a decorated fighter pilot who flew with the Army Air Corps in Europe. They married in 1944, and in 1946 moved on to the ranch in Douglas County where they've lived in the same house for almost 60 years. They were both active in the agricultural community in Douglas County where they raised Hereford cattle and set the standard for conservation minded agricultural practices. Through a life filled with their share of tragedies, there love and devotion to each other was admirable and a beautiful thing to behold through their 50th anniversary and beyond. Jeanne is survived by her children: Steven, Reggie, Morgan and Nancy. Steven and his wife, Andy Tolles, have two children: Derek and Jessie. Derek and his wife Brandy Harvey have two children: Taylor and Lauren. Reggie and his wife, Nancy Schoof have two children: Reggie and MaLinda.

Morgan his wife, Sheryl Weakley, have two daughters: Angelique and Stephanie. Nancy married Joe Fell and they also have two daughters: Allisha and Daniella.

Memorials may be made to: Alzheimer's Association-Rocky Mountain Chapter, 789 Sherman Street, Suite 500, Denver, CO 80203-3532.
