OBITUARY

Jean Morris Loughlin

November 14, 1917March 6, 2018

CHARLOTTE - Jean Morris Loughlin passed away peacefully in her home at the Cypress of Charlotte on Tuesday, March 6, 2018.

Born November 14, 1917 to Walter and Loraine Morris, of Queens Village Long Island, NY, she married Edwin Bernard Loughlin of Woodhaven, NY on November 9, 1939 in New York, a year after she graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University, NY.

Two real New Yorkers, they left New York for U.S. Steel Export in 1949 with their son John Loughlin, and lived the following fifty years mostly in South Africa, where daughter Patti was born, with a few years in Brussels, Belgium, where daughter Judy was born.

Over the years, she and Ed travelled extensively for the steel business and later, packaging business, which were his careers. She was well known for her level-headed approach, great “one-line” wit, impish, ready smile and steady hand on the tiller of life.

Jean loved her friends at the Cypress of Charlotte where she lived this past 18 years and tried never to miss her weekly Tuesday bridge group, and once in a while “had good cards”…

She is survived by her son John Loughlin and his wife Susan, grandchildren Kate Bulas, her husband James Bulas, Nikki Cook, Michael Cook and son-in-law Todd Cook, great-grandson Paul Bulas, all of Charlotte, and her daughter Patricia Rolt of Johannesburg, South Africa, plus grandchildren Christie Rolt, Joanne Carty, her husband James Carty, James Rolt and great-grandchildren Jack and Jordan Carty.

She is preceded in death by her husband Edwin of 64 years and daughter Judy Cook of Charlotte.

The care of the Cypress Home Health care team for the past three years has been excellent and much appreciated, and in particular, her family is grateful for the dedicated help of Camille Steadly, Phyllis Ross and Mildred Reynolds. While Jean was not in the care of the Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region, for very long, the team’s immediate caring support was deeply appreciated by her and her family.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 2:00 pm Wednesday, March 14th at St. Vincent de Paul Church, Charlotte. The family will receive friends following the Mass at 4:00 pm at the Cypress of Charlotte.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 6828 Old Reid Rd., Charlotte, NC 28210 (stvincentdepaulchurch.com) or Hospice & Palliative Care, Charlotte Region (https://hpccr.thankyou4 caring.org/).

I am sincerely sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one under any circumstance. Please be assured that Jehovah God is aware of your pain and he is near to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). The bible promises us that there will be a resurrection (John 5:28, 29) and that God will bring an end to death once and for all (Revelation 21:4) from that point on we will never have to feel the pangs of death again. I pray these words and scriptures are able to bring you some comfort.
