I knew Jean from her time at First UMC in Fuquay Varina, NC. She was a model of grace in her leadership roles as a Sunday School Teacher, Representative on the Church Council and as a woman of faith as she faced difficult challenges during her time in NC. What a comfort to know she was surrounded by family and is at peace now. Blest Be the Tie that Binds.
