When I first starting attending Aurelius Baptist Church, I didn't know Jean except to see her at church, always classy with beautiful clothes and jewelry. So when I was told that it was her on the stage at the Christmas pageant wearing overalls, a hunter's hat, and big hunting boots, lip syncing to Mama Got Run Over by a Reindeer, I couldn't believe it. Since then, I got to know her very well. For the past year my husband and I gave her many rides to and from church on Sundays and many rides home after bible study on Wednesday nights. She was a delightful lady to chat with, and I will miss her very much.

I remember Jean from the Mason FFA Alumni. She was one of the nicest people I've ever met. Was always willing to help with anything. She will be very missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family!

Jean has been our neighbor since we moved to Aurelius 48 years ago. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face, we developed a lovely friendship over those years. I was always touched that she asked me to join her and her family at the annual Baptist Church Mother/Daughter dinner. This is one Lady I will truly miss, but I’ll carry her smile in my heart. My sympathies to Don, Dy, and Melody. Your mom was a special lady to the is an angel.

I remember going to the Scutts house in the summer. Jean and Don lived in my neighborhood. I was friends with Melody. Jean was always so nice. She let us swim in their pool all summer. She taught us how to dive. I remember her at the church. She drove a Cadillac at one point and we called it the Jean Jean Cadillac Machine. I started dating my wife in a round about way thru Melody and my wife and I eventually bought Jean and Don's house and lived in it for 12 years. I have lots of fond memories of that house. I will remember Jean forever
