Jean was a very kind and loving wife, mother and grandmother, she very much loved to spoil her son Bobby and her grandson Dakota.But she loved and cared for everyone. One of her Hobbies was crocheting blankets for others. She loved sitting on the porch swing with Dakota when it rained and sang songs to him.
She loved to hear him play what he learned on the piano.She would always ask how his day went at school and what grade he made on his spelling test. She loved to cook the family food and would plan Thanksgiving dinners months in advance. She loved calling Tracy over in having long late-night conversations with her. She loved all the Christmas celebrations and putting up Christmas lights in the front yard. And she loves shopping at the dollar store. Jean AKA my Honey, my Mama, my Nan-Nan, my Nene. Will surely be missed more than any words can describe. Our only comfort is the Blessed Hope of the resurrection of Life that Jesus Christ promised in His word. Even so, come quickly Lord.
