Jean will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother. As a mother she did so much for her family. Each night we gathered around the table as a family to eat home cooked meals. During the holidays she was busy making cookies and all kinds of special treats. She truly made our house a home filled with love and precious memories. Family was always her focus and center of her life.
Jean was a nature lover and enjoyed bird watching and gardening. She loved to go to the mountains in Franklin, NC and staying at the family cabin where many family get-togethers and reunions were held. She enjoyed traveling with her husband and visiting with her children and grandchildren. Jean was a Nascar fan and got to see her favorite driver win the day before she died.
Jean was a long standing member of Saint Helena’s Episcopal Church and believed that Jesus Christ was her Lord and Savior.
