Jean Grawl

Please accept my condolences on your family's loss. During my father's ministry at Beneke Methodist Church the Grawl family became close family friends. Over the years, my parents received updates and photos from Jean that always meant so much to them. Last night I was going through papers of my late father's and found a letter from Jean with updates from a Beneke reunion they all attended back in 2010. It brought back some great memories. When I looked online, I was so sad to see Jean's obituary. I will miss her notes. She performed a wonderful service of keeping people in touch and organized. I will remember her fondly. And I will keep your family in my prayers for comfort. With love, Sue Anne Shoultz Kuhns (Jack and Gene Shoultz's daughter)

When we joined FUMC Humble we eventually joined the Believers & Doers Sunday School class. We instantly connected with Jean and found her to be a very caring person. We soon became fast friends and shared numerous private moments together. It is with heavy heart that we acknowledge her passing.
Her soul now is at peace and with our Heavenly Father. Amen

I met Ms. Jean while working at Rosemont and from her first night living there, we were buddies. She and I would always sit and talk every night I worked. I will miss her greatly and she truly touched my heart.

Sweetheart of a lady. I had so much fun at Beneke helping them with the youth. Collecting a mile of pennies to buy a bus for the youth to use and ending up your Dad was the one to drive it because your Mom and I were too short to shift the gears.
Hugs to all of you and your family. Gods blessings and care.

I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was such a sweet lady and always had a smile on her face that was a reflection of great joy in her heart. After relocating to Texas to be near us, my mother, Jean Betterton, thoroughly enjoyed participating in all the Merry Widows activities and senior trips your mom planned. My mother made great friends from these groups. Your mom will be greatly missed.

I met Jean at Rosemont a few years ago, she sat at my mom’s table in the dining room from day 1, I’ve enjoyed many meals and conversations with her. She was a very special lady and friend to my mom and will he missed by many. Hugs and prayers to the family.

This photo was taken at my mom’s 85th birthday party at Rosemont.
