Jean Owens, 84, a gentle lady with a North Carolina accent who made friends with everyone she met, passed on August 29th, 2020. Jean was preceded in death by her parents, Ruby and William Nobles, and her brother, Ted Nobles.

Her memory will live on through her children, Randy Hodge, Bill Owens, Lynn Hall, Ed Owens, and David Owens as well as her sister in law, Shirley Nobles. Jean had great faith and trust in God, and his ability to hold her up in difficult circumstances. She attended her Church regularly where she sang, attended Bible study, and taught many children in Sunday school. There, she made many friends and attended many social gatherings with them. She was a best friend to everyone she knew and went out of her way to lend a helping hand to anyone needing transportation to and from appointments, even though she often drove a little too fast. A guardian angel clip was attached to her sun visor as a reminder to slow down. Her greatest sense of pride was her family, especially her grandchildren & great grandchildren. They were the ones who got her special hugs, although she hugged everyone whether they needed it or not.

She loved to surround herself with beautiful things, her flowers & her memories, in her own home, which she did right up to her recent hospitalization. However, to do this over the last few months, she needed the help of many family members, including her daughter in law and care giver, Linda Creef, to whom we owe our warmest gratitude.

Immortality lies not in the things we leave behind, but in the people whose lives we have touched. Love knows no bounds. To the God who brought her to us, bear her gently to her heavenly home of peace and happiness.

A beautiful woman. Remember the many loving discussions and prayers we shared while waiting for our Sunday School children to arrive. She was a great inspiration to me.

My sincerest condolences to all the family. Aunt Jean was like a 2nd mom to me and I loved her dearly. We spoke often and I have such fond memories of holidays, spending a week in the summers with her and Aunt Inez, camping trips with our families and visits that we had. She was one of the most loving people I ever have known. She will always hold a very special place in my heart. May God comfort all who knew her and will now miss her.

Jean was so special. She loved to talk (as much as me) and also shared many detailed prayer request for family and neighbors.
I would like to share a special memory of the first time I met Jean. I worked in classified/secret material at Naval Base. I had to talk with her about a pretty serious mistake she had made. She was sooooooo sweet I couldn’t be upset! I helped get it “fixed” without reporting her and we were forever friends I ended up worshipping with her many years at VBFWBC and many more memories! She’ll be missed!

Jean loved Hugs. 💒 She loved everyone especially her Sons. I moved away from VA. But we stayed in contact with lengthy phone calls. She was an encouraging sweet friend.
I will miss her💕

So very sorry for the loss of Jean. She was such a wonderful woman who always had a smile on her face. I have enjoyed talking to her over the years and my grandson absolutely fell in love with her last time we were in Virginia. Wishing the family peace and comfort during this hard time. RIP Miss Jean. We will miss you.

I want to express my sincere sympathy to the Hodge's and Owen's
family at the loss of their mother. I have known Jean for over 50 years as I was her mother's (Ruby Nobles) next door neighbor and eventually hers since 1966.
Jean was the kindest sweetest person anyone could meet and have the good fortune of knowing.
She was extremely kind, thoughtful and loving to my family and me, we will all certainly miss her "Christmas" fudge if you were fortunate to be on her list.
I will miss you dearly. Rest in Peace dear friend.
