She was the valedictorian at Pine Hill High School and went on to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Livingston State College. She began her teaching career at West Pensacola Elementary in 1962. At West Pensacola, she was a 3rd grade and primary resource teacher for over 30 years until her retirement in 1991, at which time she was named Escambia County Employee of the Year. After her retirement, she served as the volunteer coordinator at West Pensacola and then Blue Angel Elementary. She was an active member of her beloved sorority, Alpha Delta Kappa (ADK), where she served in many leadership positions.

Mrs. Duncan was my third grade teacher at West Pensacola. I was reunited with her many years later at Blue Angels Elementary. She was truly an extraordinary woman. Her smile was radiant, her compassion unmatched and her love for teaching was felt by each of her students. May God comfort you during your time of sadness and may you know Mrs. Duncan changed lives, she made the world a better place. I am blessed to have known her.

Jean was a warm and loving Southern lady. As a new teacher I could look to her example at West Pensacola. Beginning my career there with teachers like Jean was a blessing.
