Jean was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, who was known as "MeMaw" to her family. She was very active in the community. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Baker, and was former President and member of the Baker Pilot Club. She was also a member of the Women's Auxiliary of the Baker Fire Department, and helped get the first ambulance in Baker. She enjoyed gardening and reading. She especially loved to read her Bible, and was a member of a weekly Bible study. She will be deeply missed.
