Jean was a dedicated Christian, mother, and homemaker. She devoted all her time to her five children and the church. She had roles at South Park Baptist Church and Park Place Church, as a Sunday School Teacher, Sunbeam Leader, GA Leader, and WMU President. Jean was the Room Mom, PTA President, and always very active in her children’s schools. She enjoyed sewing, reading, square dancing, and RV camping. Jean was “a cook in name only” and some of the family favorites included, bread pudding and fried chicken. Although she battled with Alzheimer’s for the last 15 years she still very much enjoyed going on outings with her grandkids to Chickfila and Gringos. Jean still made it to the grandkids sporting events and loved spending time with her family. She was affectionately known as Mema to her grandchildren and loved to have everyone over for the holidays. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org.
