My aunt, Jean Cornwell, was a fun, affectionate, loving woman with strong faith. She was a good mother and was well loved by all of her extended family.

This bible verse truly reflects Jean's life:

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith.

2 Timothy 4:7

She will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers will be with her family during this time.

Lots of love, Jan and Lavada Reeves
