I am the granddaughter of Marjorie Woolbright. I have so many fond memories of Mammarj and Jean together at their garage sales, antique shop, or just sitting in the kitchen visiting. I want to send deepest condolences on behalf of our family to the family of Jean. She and Bud were part of ours.

Jean loved her family fiercely and she was a force to be reckoned with. May she rest in peace now that her journey on this earth is done. She will forever live on in the hearts of her family and friends.
I pray that her family can find peace and comfort during this time of sorrow and transition. Susan and Phillip, I love you both very much.
I am sending my very deepest condolences to this family.
