Jean was born on August 2, 1943, in Castlewood, VA. From an early age, Jean used her talented hands for fashion design. She was a gifted cook, hairdresser, seamstress, gardener, and had a passion for creating her own unique style. She married the love of her life, Jim, on April 1, 1963, and they enjoyed 56 wonderful years of marriage. In 1966, they moved and made their home in Tuscaloosa. Together they loved to travel, and shared a servants’ heart. She was an active member of Druid Hills UMC for 53 years. She retired in 2012 after over 50 combined years from Gayfers and Salon Studios. She took pride in her family and being a mother, grandmother, and friend to so many. Her home was always beautifully decorated with the door always open to welcome guests both near and far. She was a race fan, and an animal advocate. Her cats, Crissy and Rufus will miss her dearly.
Honorary pall bearers are member of Druid Hills UMC and Chapel Hill Baptist Church.
